Dusseldorf, 24 January 2018: Damovo, a leading provider of managed services and solutions to large enterprises worldwide, has been awarded Diamond Partner status by Extreme Networks. This is the highest level of partner accreditation awarded by the networking company.
Extreme Networks is one of the fastest-growing vendors in the area of software-driven Enterprise Networking solutions. The company is ranked as a top visionary in Gartner’s most recent Wired and Wireless LAN Access Infrastructure Magic Quadrant. Its recent acquisitions of Avaya’s networking business, Zebra’s wireless LAN division, and Brocade’s switching, routing and analytics business for data centres has given the company a comprehensive core, campus and edge network portfolio.
Damovo recognises that intelligent networks are at the foundation of an enterprise’s digitisation strategy. As unified communication technologies place increasing demands on network bandwidth, automated and secure networking technologies enable organisations to deploy UC networks much faster, allowing them to allocate bandwidth resources to manage those communications streams more efficiently. This is why the partnership with Extreme is key for the Damovo portfolio.
Sonja Berghman, Head of Group Enterprise Networks Propositions at Damovo, said: “Damovo’s traditional strength has been in unified communications. Software-defined networking directly impacts how UC solutions are implemented – facilitating better network provisioning, disaster recovery, resiliency, and network traffic analysis. As a Diamond Certified Partner we can bring Extreme’s secure and open-standards based Fabric technology to our customers, enabling them to trial and deploy new services whilst maintaining network uptime, and retaining full control even as demands on their infrastructure increase. We look forward to working more closely with Extreme in the future in order to accelerate our growth in the enterprise networking space.”
Michael Grundl, Director Channel & Partner Sales EMEA at Extreme Networks added: “Damovo is one of our fastest-growing business partners and we are delighted to award it with our Diamond certification. Damovo’s pan-European coverage and significant experience in both UC and networking make it the perfect partner for Extreme to work with in order to expand our market share and drive innovation.“
