With the collaboration by Redington, LinkPlus has been expanding its value-added distributorship concept that it has been successfully doing for many years with different brands. By June 2017, LinkPlus has added the Versa Networks brand, which comes to the fore front with software-defined wide area network projects in USA and Europe.
LinkPlus predicts that Versa Networks will grow very rapidly in the Turkish market. Organizations and service providers in Turkey are also familiar with Versa Networks because SDN is a software-defined network concept and a global brand. References from different sectors and service providers started to form immediately with the business collaboration. Thus, the journey of a configuration started with the product orders.
Versa Networks started with the European countries to launch into the world. Many service providers in European countries have used SD-WAN and the software-defined network projects used by their connected products.
LinkPlus, the first and only authorized distributor of Versa Networks in Turkey, is positioning its products under the "Security and Network" Business Unit. LinkPlus Security and Network Business Unit Manager Onur Demirel says that they are closely monitoring Versa Networks, which has gained remarkable success in the US and Europe, and that the country office is actively responding to the search for an authorized distributor in Turkey.
Ahmet Turan Türkgil explains how the software defined networking world has different needs compared to the conventional network understanding that outweighs the physical side and tells how they decided to go out with LinkPlus with the following words: "We want to work with the distributor both in the hardware and software world and in understanding the value- it had to be owned. LinkPlus works with a strong partner network that has strengthened over many years in both worlds. Besides, there's a big financial power behind Redington Group. With the Redington Group, we plan to work not only in Turkey but also in neighboring countries. It was inevitable that we chose LinkPlus when all these features came together. "
