QOS Networks (QOS), a company that helps enterprises leverage technology to drive innovation, announced a formal partnership this month with Sandler Partners, America’s fastest growing distributor of connectivity and cloud services.
Starting in November, the two organizations will join forces to increase access to the QOS bundle of SD-WAN solutions leveraging best-in-class SD WAN, Service Management, and Security solutions.
The partnership significantly extends the QOS channel presence. Frank Cittadino, CEO of QOS, will unveil the solution suite at the Sandler Partners SoCal Partner Summit on October 25 during the SD-WAN and Connectivity Panel scheduled for 11:30 AM – 12:15 PM.
Basics of SD-WAN
Software-defined WAN capitalizes on the flexibility and agility of SDN by shifting network monitoring and management from physical devices to the application layer. This allows for the use of public and private connections for lower-cost and highly flexible connections to the cloud.
However, unlike SD-WAN bundled with the carrier product mix, the QOS solution enables partners to establish a reliable connection regardless of provider and can extend multiple MPLS VPNs from various carriers with dedicated customer gateways all optimized for the cloud.
Taking SD-WAN Up Market
Cittadino explains how QOS adds value with a new offering: “Our expertise is in the enterprise. We developed this SD-WAN solution with an in-depth understanding of the complexities that large businesses face. Bundling SD-WAN with ServiceNow and granular security solutions enables us to provide customers with the tools they embed into their daily IT operations.”
He stresses that this “game changer for the partner community” gives them the tools to compete with systems integrators and direct sales organizations for big business.
Caleb Tucker, Consigliere for Sandler Partners, highlights the advantages of working together to drive custom solutions: “QOS is a veteran when it comes to designing highly innovative solutions for customers. Sandler Partners is excited to partner with QOS to … help our agents win more deals where a prepackaged solution may not be the best fit..”
With deep roots in the channel, QOS has experienced tremendous YOY growth. Continued investment in the business focuses on complex enterprise-wide deployments with a significant emphasis on technology, people, and project management.
