Black Box, the technology solutions provider of high-performance KVM, professional A/V signal distribution and extension and switching solutions, has announced a partnership with Netscout, provider of network test equipment and business intelligence solutions.
Black Box has been appointed by Netscout as a key distribution partner to deliver its Handheld Network Tools (HNT) suite of products to the UK market. The new partnership will bring the combined expertise and technical knowledge of Netscout and Black Box to customers throughout the UK.
"With the increasing complexity of planning, deploying and supporting complex wired and wireless networks across multiple sites the Netscout range of products allows Black Box and our customers to quickly diagnose and maintain network performance," said David Long, Black Box director of sales for UK & Ireland. "With the Netscout HNT tool set Black Box can offer portable, comprehensive network diagnostic technology to customers whatever their budget and application requirements might be."
The market for handheld network analysers is predicted to grow substantially in the next few years due to evolving technologies and the demand for bandwidth hungry applications such as video-conferencing, faster connectivity for e-commerce, and multimedia.
"The agreement with Black Box is key in Netscout's growth plan" said Kevin Astill, UK channel director, "Working together we are well positioned to add real value to the channel, and we are pleased to have Black Box as our distribution partner for our range of optical, copper and wireless test equipment."
