Value-added networking distributor OnLine Distribution hopes to capitalise on the rising demand for high performance cabling solutions in the Middle East. The growth of the sector has persuaded a number of vendors including both Corning and Ortronics to open dedicated offices within the region. “Network infrastructure is a major area of growth in Middle East,” said Venu Menon, director at OnLine Distribution. “IT professionals have learned from experience with existing networks that they must have the best connectivity infrastructure to realize the full potential of their network. Especially when it calls for data intensive applications. Managers now view high quality cabling as an excellent investment rather than just a necessary cost.” “Our expanded portfolio of cabling solutions has been well received by the existing network of channel partners, with particularly strong demand from those active in the government, healthcare and telecommunications sectors. As a value added distributor, the presence of our vendor partners in the region will help us serve the channel and our customers better,” he added. OnLine claims that regional network managers are now willing to invest in new, advanced technologies that will deliver tangible benefits to their operations. The distributor also contends that there has been rapid growth in the acceptance of laser optimised multimode fiber as an alternative to traditional multimode and single mode fiber. “Design innovations are helping companies to manage cabling and technology issues more effectively, which is why this is a fast-growing area for investment in the region,” added Menon. “With the size, scope and sophistication of networks continuing to increase within the region, cost efficient yet effective management solutions will become a key priority for regional network managers.” OnLine offers a range of value-added services to its channel partners including technical services, networking design solutions and training assistance.
