DALLAS, TEXAS – (May 9, 2011) – Xtera Communications’ IP Networking Group, leaders in network devices and providers of world class solutions for IP traffic management, today announced that the company is extending its Value Added Reseller (VAR) program to increase sales and support of its IP network management product line in North America.
Xtera’s extensive use of VARs has been successful in significantly growing sales in markets outside of the US, including, Asia-Pacific, Europe, and South America. Sales in some regions have doubled each of the past two years. Xtera is looking to replicate that success in the North America by expanding its network of VARs to provide easier access and better support of its IP products in the US and Canada.
Xtera’s IP product line has been popular among VARs looking to offer a low-cost, high-quality solution for IP network management of today’s growing VoIP, video and data applications. The high-margin IP products are designed and manufactured in Taiwan. Xtera’s proven VAR program includes:
· Extensive Pre-Sales and Sales Support
· Recurring Sales and Technical Support
· Installation Support
Xtera’s IP product line is anchored by AscenFlow™, an Intelligent WAN traffic manager that ensures protection of critical network and web applications using Deep Packet Inspection (DPI) technology to analyze IP network traffic and apply quality of service enforcement policies. AscenFlow’s DPI technology solves network congestion by identifying and restricting bandwidth of recreational applications such as P2P, iTunes, YouTube, Facebook and online gaming. Performance of mission-critical applications is assured by designating and guaranteeing bandwidth of predefined services based on traffic management policies.
AscenLink™, an intelligent WAN load balancer for use by enterprise and small business users will also be offered by VARs in North America. The AscenLink load balancer includes patented Tunnel Routing™ technology which delivers link aggregation and fault tolerance over multiple links for various applications, including VPN and Video Streaming. It is used extensively in applications requiring more Internet access bandwidth than is available from single-link access technologies and is able to deliver significant cost savings and reliability improvements over single-link inter-site private line or VPN intranet connections.
