ADVA Optical Networking today officially launched its Partner Ecosphere Program (PEP). The new program provides the company’s partners with a comprehensive suite of tools designed to help expand their business and increase profitability. These services include ready access to state-of-the-art lab facilities, on demand web-based trainings and a global support base.
“Our PEP program has been built to help our partners succeed and ensure the highest quality for end customers,” said Gottfried Bonleitner, director, carrier channel market development Europe, ADVA Optical Networking. “For over 18 months, we have been working closely with our existing partners to develop a program that delivers exactly what they need, exactly what their customers need. PEP provides our partners with access to everything we have. This includes our technology, our knowledge, our support. In such a competitive environment, PEP will help our partners stand apart.”
PEP currently offers two partnership levels: Elite and Select. Each level is targeted at specific business demands as well as service and quality requirements. On March 13, dacoso GmbH was officially named as the first Elite Partner and will be using its new status in a range of data center projects in and outside Germany. Brian Protiva, CEO, ADVA Optical Networking, officially welcomed dacoso as the first Elite partner at the company’s Martinsried/Munich headquarters.
“Working closely with ADVA Optical Networking through PEP will enable us to better serve our customers in a technology marketplace that is constantly changing,” said Horst Pohl, CEO at dacoso. “The program gives us easy and early access to ADVA Optical Networking technology, along with a range of valuable supporting resources and services. We look forward to teaming with ADVA Optical Networking and their partners in pursuing new business opportunities.”
