"With that in mind, we've continued to provide customers with a robust global portfolio of solutions and services that can help them maintain or upgrade their current network or datacenter infrastructure at a fraction of the cost without sacrificing quality or reliability."

Also became the first global stocking reseller of Menara Networks' IP over DWDM 10G Optics.
  • Received TL 9000 certification for the fifth consecutive year ensuring the highest standards in equipment testing.
