CHARLOTTE, N.C. – April 18, 2013 – DukeNet Communications, a leading regional fiber provider of high-bandwidth connectivity solutions for enterprise, data center and carrier businesses in the Southeast, announces today that it has signed a Master Agent agreement with industry-recognized value-added distributor, Telarus. The Telarus agreement reinforces DukeNet’s commitment to providing its services portfolio and engaging new customers throughout the Southeast.
DukeNet’s indirect channel program, established in September 2012, enables national and regional telecom agents, value added resellers (VARs), system integrators and consultants to sell DukeNet’s high-capacity optical and Ethernet services to mid-market and large enterprise customers in the Southeast. The Telarus agreement expands and strengthens DukeNet’s service commitment across the Southeast by partnering with one of the industry’s most recognized and awarded value-added service distributors.
“We are thrilled to be a Master Agent in DukeNet’s Channel Partner Program,” says Adam Edwards, President of Telarus. “DukeNet’s brand strength and commitment to service quality is well-known in the Southeast. The company’s reputation for service excellence, combined with its over 8,000 dense fiber route miles in key Southeast markets, provide our agent partners another viable alternative to service their enterprise customers.”
To give its partners the ability to pre-screen locations serviceable by DukeNet, Telarus programmed its patented GeoQuote system to accurately display the locations of DukeNet’s lit buildings in its fiber-mapping tool, powered by Google maps.
“The DukeNet channel partner program is more than six months old and growing stronger with the participation of top-notch distributors like Telarus,” states Mike Prendergast, DukeNet Senior Vice President of Sales and Marketing. “We see tremendous opportunity for advanced transport solutions in the marketplace today, particularly as the implementation of cloud-based applications continues to grow. Cloud services are not possible without a high-capacity fiber-optic network as their foundation. The agreement with Telarus affirms our commitment to deliver best-in-class Ethernet and fiber-based products and services that give agents, VARs and integrators new choices and solutions for their customers here in the Southeast.”
