Infrastructure VAD Arrow ECS has entered into a distribution agreement for France and Germany with Juniper Networks, the leader in AI-driven secure networks.
Under the terms of the agreement, Arrow will continue to distribute Juniper's product portfolio with the addition of these two key countries.
