UNSi is at ITEXPO (News - Alert) Austin 2012 this week in Austin, Texas, promoting its Same IP Failover solution, its recent MPLS and VPLS network expansion, and its channel partner program.
Same IP Failover is a business continuity and disaster recovery solution that includes connectivity and a managed appliance. Robert Condito, senior director of channel development at UNSi, explains that SIF is a more affordable option for enterprise customers that have multiple networks for IP and would otherwise have to implement border gateway protocol to recognize incoming traffic on both their primary and secondary circuits. This latter, do-it-yourself method, he says, can be a costly and complex endeavor.
In other recent UNSi news, the company in September announced that it has completed major network upgrades. It expanded its Dallas and Denver points of presence into full border gateway interconnects that provide carrier Ethernet, DIA, MPLS and VPLS services. It also built out a full BGI at its newest PoP in St. Louis.
As for the channel program, called the UNSi Channel Partner (News - Alert) Program, it offers various partner levels and commitments, and enables partners to resell the company’s services. Those services include carrier Ethernet, MPLS, VPLS and broadband aggregation capabilities. The channel program targets agents, large master agents and VARs. Secure-24, which sells managed IT, application hosting and cloud computing services, was among the first UNSi channel partners.
The channel program provides partners with access to the UNSi cost database, which includes more than 2,000 providers; UNSi’s own network assets; and its consolidated billing capabilities. Partners are catered to via an online partner portal, as well as via marketing, sales and technical support. The channel program also lets partners access the company’s network engineering resources and interact directly with company staff.
