D&H Canada, announced that it has signed an agreement with Cisco to carry its Meraki line of cloud-based wireless routing solutions and management services. The Cisco Meraki wireless access points accommodate robust Wi-Fi networks in a variety of vertical environments including retail, hospitality, healthcare, education, and facility management.
These solutions can deliver individual, local, and wide-area networks, allowing resellers to establish connectivity over distributed campuses that are centrally managed via the cloud. Such projects represent significant opportunities for resellers and managed service providers to sell both complex Wi-Fi infrastructures and lucrative, ongoing management service contracts. The Cisco Meraki™ solutions will be offered as part of D&H Canada’s ongoing Cisco PRO enablement program, which will include training and specialized resources to support D&H Canada’s Cisco partners.
The Cisco Meraki Cloud Networking ecosystem is a comprehensive, hosted management platform with a user base of thousands of MSPs and IT professionals. It incorporates capabilities such as data analytics, Layer 7 device and application visibility, real time web-based diagnostics, device management, monitoring, and reporting.
“We’re thrilled to offer Cisco’s powerful line of Meraki Wi-Fi based routing solutions, which will allow our SMB resellers to compete for opportunities ranging from centralized local office deployments to widely distributed, branch-office configurations for universities or retail chains,” said Greg Tobin, general manager at D&H Canada. “In a market where other distribution partners are reducing their resources, D&H Canada is growing both its investments in the channel and its product assortment. We’re proud to add high-performance solutions from industry pioneers such as Cisco to our linecard.”
“We’re excited to join forces with D&H Canada to help proliferate Cisco Meraki wireless environments in the SMB space,” said Tracey Hutchison, director, partner sales at Cisco. “D&H Canada continues to drive success in the small and mid-size business segment; we look forward to expanding penetration for Meraki’s powerful, cloud-ready Wi-Fi solutions.”
