Network, telecoms and security VAD Westcon has signed a distribution agreement with global network technology leader, CommScope, to expand its European reach for Ruckus hardware, software and services.


CommScope’s Ruckus products enable IT organisations to easily deploy, manage and grow complex networks that serve both IT and operational technology requirements. With fewer network elements to manage, Ruckus networks simplify life for IT while delivering a reliably exceptional connectivity experience.


As the distributor grows its presence within Europe, Westcon’s resellers will have the ability to choose from the wide range of quality products that CommScope has to offer for their end customers. With a growing number of local distributors serving the market, Westcon’s global reach will allow it to serve both local resellers as well as global customers.


Businesses have changed their operating models overnight and people expect connectivity to be there no matter if they are live-streaming events, working from home, playing games or connecting store employees”, said Ehab Kanary, Vice President of Enterprise for EMEA, CommScope. “As leaders across education, healthcare, financial services and other industries innovate to improve customer experience their IT teams can tap into hardware and software that makes network management autonomous and more reliable.


Marianne Nickenig, Vice President of Networking and Collaboration EMEA at Westcon, said: “businesses today are more reliant than ever on technology, and networks are becoming increasingly complex as a result. There is a growing demand for simplified network management, and Ruckus products provide exactly that. We’ve had huge success with Ruckus products across Europe so far, and we’re really pleased to be able to expand on our agreement with CommScope to bring further success to Ruckus.


The distribution agreement has started with key markets, including Germany, the Netherlands and the United Kingdom.
