MILPITAS, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Relay2, Inc., an emerging leader in next-generation enterprise-class wireless networking solutions, announced today it has been included in the prestigious CRN 2014 Network Connectivity Services Partner Program Guide (PPG), which highlights the service providers and technology vendors whose offerings provide the underpinnings of today's mission-critical network connectivity solutions.
Deep partnerships between IT solution providers and the telecom industry’s master agents and voice and Internet service providers (ISPs) are becoming the norm as customers demand a single services and support relationship for their voice, data and Internet needs. As these industries converge, CRN’s annual Network Connectivity Services PPG has become a critical resource that allows solution providers to locate vendors offering complementary connectivity solutions and services. All of the vendors featured in this guide have partner programs that embrace the IT channel.
Relay2’s Cloud Wi-Fi services enable service providers to deliver Over-The-Top (OTT) Wi-Fi services to high-density public venues and to distributed businesses such as retail chains, hospitality companies, and school campuses. The company’s unique Cloud Wi-Fi ecosystem enables organizations to improve customer service and monetize the wireless network through advanced mobile services such as app distribution, location-based advertising, Online-to-Offline (O2O) commerce, video content delivery and much more with unprecedented network efficiency and performance.
“As we bring this innovative, paradigm-shifting enterprise-class wireless LAN solution to market we’re very excited to be included in the CRN Network Connectivity Services Partner Program Guide,” explained Perry Ha, CEO and Chairman of the Board for Relay2. “Our system offers managed service providers an innovative WLAN solution with a Cloud-based controller that enables the service provider to easily deploy and centrally manage multiple distributed wireless networks, while at the same time providing customers with a scalable solution that delivers enterprise-class performance while vastly reducing their CAPEX and OPEX.”
“As network solution providers expand their businesses to provide the cloud and connectivity services their customers demand, telecom agents and ISPs are eyeing the IT channel as an additional source of revenue and an in-road to a whole new set of clients,” said Robert Faletra, CEO of The Channel Company, publisher of CRN. “We’re witnessing a fundamental change in the IT industry as two formerly disparate types of solution and service providers become one. Through resources like the CRN Network Connectivity Services Partner Program Guide, solution providers seeking partners are better able to identify and connect with organizations specifically chosen for their channel-savvy go-to-market strategies and the enthusiastic and creative ways they are embracing these shared opportunities.”
The Network Connectivity Services Partner Program Guide is featured in the August issue of CRN, the top news source for solution providers and the IT channel, and is also available online.
