11/19/2013 - Spirent Names Interlink Communication Systems the US Distribution Partner for New Enterprise

Spirent Axon Lets Resellers Build Comprehensive Network Performance Management and Managed Service Offerings

Sunnyvale, California – (November 19, 2013) – Spirent Communications, the leading provider of testing solutions for communications networks, services and devices, announced today that it has reached an agreement with Interlink Communication Systems to distribute Spirent Axon to resellers within the United States. The distribution agreement will enable Spirent to reach more value added resellers and system integrators.

Spirent Axon is a real time network and application performance assessment and troubleshooting tool. It enables enterprises to test network performance, simulates IT traffic and measures latency, jitter and packet loss to help ensure end-user quality of service (QoS). With Axon, IT professionals and network engineers now have a solution that lets them proactively and cost effectively manage the quality and performance of their network before going live with new applications and services. Ultimately, Axon helps to improve the revenue potential of the network by reducing IT costs and increasing network performance.

"We are delighted about working with a great partner like Interlink to distribute Axon to enterprise solution providers and system integrators in the US," said Brian Buege, General Manager, Enterprise Solutions at Spirent. "Until now, the sophisticated performance tuning platforms used by global network service providers have been out of reach for all but the largest IT organizations. Axon changes this; it gives customers tangible control over network performance at a reasonable price point. It’s a real win for IT organizations, allowing them to build high performance network infrastructure that provides big improvements in customer experience."

Spirent's enterprise solution will use a channel model for sales in the US and the new partner program will identify a team of "Go-To" Partners that can deliver Axon to IT end-users while adding value.

"Solution providers will now have access to this incredible new product focused toward the enterprise," said Joe Serra, President and COO at Interlink Communication Systems. "We see tremendous opportunities for our reseller partners. They can use Spirent Axon to build their own network performance management solutions and real time network testing into their existing deployments and managed services offering to provide their customers with best in class management tools."
