Alpha Data is using its stand in Hall 7 to showcase a range of networking products and illustrate its skills in systems integration and service support. Extreme Networks, Huawei Technologies, Juniper Networks and ReefEdge are the key vendors on display.

While the Juniper products are targeted towards service providers, with Etisalat among the latest operators to invest in a solution following its deployment of Juniper’s M-160 IP Gigabit routers, the Extreme switches are designed for core network backbones.

Additionally, ReefEdge provides a host of security solutions for wireless networking, which provides filtering and monitoring features.

“Enterprises may have a wireless area with different users coming into that range, such as a contractor who is not allowed to access certain parts of the network or it could be a company employee who has access rights to the network. These solutions allow enterprises to control all these factors,” says Ravi Mali, director of Alpha Data’s networking division.

Huawei Technologies is a new partner for Alpha Data, with the systems integrator keen to use Gitex as a springboard for demonstrating the functionality and competitiveness of the networking vendor’s routers.

“After testing Huawei enterprise routers, we were really surprised. The routers are fully interoperable with other competitors and perform 2-3 times faster,” claims Mali.

According to Mali, the compatibility and performance of Huawei’s routers also compliments its goal of providing best of breed solutions to the region’s enterprises.

“Our mission has been to provide best of breed networking solutions by integrating best in class technology from different manufacturers and cementing them together to provide best in class end-to-end solutions,” he adds.
