Avaya’s portfolio of data networking solutions will be integrated into Westcon Group’s Learn, Experience, Architect and Plan Centers of Excellence.
LEAP Centers are devoted to replicating real-world scenarios in deploying virtualization and private cloud infrastructures. They provide resellers the ability to test and experience high-growth solutions such as high-performance virtualized computing platforms, network virtualization and unified data center management.
Westcon will fully integrate the range of Avaya data networking solutions into the LEAP data center including their Ethernet switching solutions and Visual Services Platform 7000 and 9000. Both are key to the Virtual Enterprise Network Architecture which provides uninterrupted VM mobility within and between data centers.
“Westcon’s LEAP Centers provide resellers with a unique way to experience Avaya’s next-generation data networking solutions,” said Steve Bandrowczak, Vice President and General Manager, Networking, Avaya. “The centers offer hands-on access to our full networking portfolio, including the Avaya VSP 7000 and 9000, to help resellers increase value, capture high-growth opportunities and close deals with Avaya’s solutions. Westcon has consistently proven itself to be one of Avaya’s most valued distribution partners and their centers are a unique value-add for our customers. We are pleased to be part of Westcon’s innovative LEAP initiative.”
