Prologix Distribution, a leading IT & telecom systems integrator in the Middle East and Africa, has signed a partnership agreement with Fluke Networks, a world leader in innovative solutions for the testing, monitoring and analysis of enterprise and telecommunications networks, to deliver the company's range of network monitoring, analysis, troubleshooting and security solutions to enterprise customers and SMBs in the United Arab Emirates (UAE). Prologix will leverage Fluke Networks' OptiView, TruView and AirMagnet solutions to build high-performance networks that will see deployment in the telecom, banking, finance, contact centers, oil and gas, healthcare, hospitality and education sectors.
“The broad range of industries that these solutions can be deployed in gives us a wider customer base to target,” said Sarwan Singh, Director Sales and Operation, Prologix LLC. “The ability to identify, analyse and troubleshoot network disruptions on-the-go is essential to ensuring service delivery that meets QoS expectations. Our partnership with Fluke Networks further strengthens Prologix's networking capabilities, allowing us to add yet another facet to our solutions portfolio.”
Prologix expects the partnership to generate in excess of $1.5 million in the first year and has established a team of five highly trained network professionals dedicated to the new product range. These engineers have all received training directly from Fluke Networks on the company's OptiView, TruView and AirMagnet solutions and are capable of rapidly deploying convincing POCs in highly complex customer network environments. As per the agreement, Fluke Networks will further extend sales and pre-sales support to the Prologix Team and assist the company in identifying solutions and deployment scenarios which will best meet customer requirements.
Fluke Networks' OptiView is a hand held tablet device that allows network managers to analyse and troubleshoot anything, anywhere in the network, at any time. It automates root cause analysis of network and application problems to reduce the time required for troubleshooting. This ease of use is also seen in Fluke Networks' TruView unified network and application performance troubleshooting appliance, which correlates data into seamless guided workflows to provide root cause visibility in 3 clicks or less.
Prologix will also offer AirMagnet, a complete tool set for wireless planning, deployment, verification, troubleshooting, interference, security and 24x7 Performance monitoring. The solution spans the entire WLAN lifecycle, from planning and deployment to ongoing troubleshooting and dedicated security monitoring, combating all wireless issues. This comprehensive set of mobile tools has been specifically designed for the pre-deployment planning, ongoing management and multifaceted security of IEEE 802.11a/b/g/n networks.
“The decision to sign on Prologix was almost intuitive given how well our businesses align for our mutual benefit. Their proven track record of successfully implemented networking and telecom related projects and strong ties with global networking leaders such as Cisco, Juniper and HP give us confidence that they have the right type of customers to benefit from our solutions,” said Ziad Sawtari of Fluke Networks.
Prologix began in 1998 as PC assembling and maintenance company, transitioned to a systems integrator and finally transformed into one of the region’s leading value added distributors in the IT and Telecom domain. The company’s focus is on ‘Value’ products, which help resellers provide innovative solutions to their customers and at the same time provide them with the opportunity to earn margins. Over the years, Prologix had studied the market and created a distribution network across the region, by appointing VARs & sub distributors, this has enabled Prologix to serve the demands of a growing market, not just as a distribution company, but as a ‘total solutions to supply’ provider.
