Toronto, Ontario: Xeo AI, the fast-growing Canadian Technology Distributor for information, communications & technology solutions, today announced a strategic distributor agreement with Adaptiv Networks, the market leader in software-defined wide-area networks (SD-WANs). Through this strategic partnership, Xeo AI will offer agile and cost-effective software-defined network connectivity to businesses that require high availability for critical application and workloads, via its vast network of Telecom resellers, MSPs and VARs.
SD-WAN is a game-changing technology that can increase productivity, improve user experience, reduce cost and optimize network utilization by securely and intelligently directing traffic across the WAN via centralized control function. SD-WAN leverages any lower-cost connectivity services (such as DSL and LTE) to deliver unbreakable and quality-controlled connectivity services, transforming the way bandwidth distribution is prioritized across the entire network based on application requirements. The flexible SD-WAN connectivity solutions enable the small-medium businesses with mission-critical workloads to get access to MPLS-type high-performance connectivity without the complexity, or the cost associated with traditional MPLS solutions.
To capitalize on the growing demand for SD-WAN in the SMB market, Xeo AI needed to add SD-WAN in its networking product suite.
"We vetted several SD-WAN providers in every segment across Canada and the US before finalizing an SD-WAN partner for the SMB community," said Ruben Supramanyam, Channel Director, Xeo AI. "Adaptiv, with its cloud-based agile Network-as-a-Service (NaaS) solution, is uniquely positioned to cater adequately to the entire Canadian small and mid-market community. We will announce our newly signed partnership at the Canadian Channel Partners Conference on Oct 24th at the Westin Harbour Castle, Toronto.”
By combining the router, the cloud orchestrator and the bandwidth into a frictionless NaaS offering, Adaptiv Networks makes it very easy for MSPs and VARs to get quickly onto the SD-WAN bandwagon without any hassle or upfront investments.
Through this agreement, Xeo AI will offer the full suite of Adaptiv’s SD-WAN cloud connectivity solutions via its vast network of channel partners, resellers, MSPs, VARs and agents to business customers across Canada and the US. The addition of Adaptiv Networks to preferred Xeo AI technology vendor creates an excellent opportunity for Xeo AI resell partners, MSPs & VARs to provide agile and cost-effective cloud connectivity solutions without compromising the performance and reliability of mission-critical workloads.
“As we work exclusively through channel partners, a partnership with Xeo AI, the fastest-growing Canadian Master Agency, is a very logical next-step for Adaptiv Networks. We are excited to partner with Xeo AI and look forward to mutual growth across Canada and the US, especially with businesses that rely increasingly on cloud solutions and can’t risk the best-effort nature of the internet nor afford the cost of MPLS,” said Bernard Breton, CEO of Adaptiv Networks.
With the announcement, Xeo AI pushes further the foundation for their AI-powered lead generation and distribution platform for cloud, security & emerging tech solutions that would change the way Canadian channel partners do business today. By taking away the complexity of distribution and the ownership for lead generation & training, Xeo AI makes it easy for the managed service providers to enter into the cloud, security and emerging tech market and take their MSP business to the next level.
