Prologix inks distie deal with Digital Lightwave
Regional distributor to channel with testing equipment for 40/100G telecom networks
Prologix Distribution, a regional VAD in the Middle East and Africa (MEA) region has signed an agreement with Digital Lightwave, a provider of test equipment and technologies for the telecoms industry.
The partnership enables Prologix to distribute Digital Lightwave's entire portfolio of products for portable/rack-mount Ethernet, synchronous optical network (SONET) and synchronous digital hierarchy (SDH), optical transport network (OTN) and fibre channel testing.
"Building a brand that is instantly recognised as one of the leading technology providers for the telecoms industry in the MEA region is our objective at Prologix Distribution," said Aditya Sahaya, director, Sales at Prologix LLC.
"Digital Lightwave's modular solutions allow testing advanced voice and data networks with higher efficiency, accuracy and at a lower investment. Leveraging these technologies and the long standing expertise the vendor has in the market, will help us to steadily gain market share together with our partners," Sahaya said.
The distributor said although the deal is for the entire product portfolio, Prologix will focus on Digital Lightwave's network information computer (NIC) single platform instrument, which through a flexible software/firmware architecture, combines a multitude of traditional hardware-based test sets enabling the installation, maintenance and monitoring of high-speed multi-protocol 40/100G networks.
Prologix estimates business in excess of $1m in the first year. Sahaya said: "Network resilience is pivotal to the growth of Middle East telecom companies and effective testing is essential for this. We ensure that the solutions we offer to the market are best-of-breed and we are confident in our partners ability to create a strong demand."
