Gilat Telecom has been appointed as the exclusive distributor in Africa for Quantum Networks.
Gilat Telecom will be making the product portfolio of Quantum Networks available to its existing SI partners in Africa. Gilat Telecom is also expanding its channel programme in Africa in response to increasing demand for its VAS portfolio including SDWAN, UCaaS and Bandwidth Management.
Quantum Networks’ equipment is currently used within the networks of MNOs and ISPs across the world. The company has built its reputation for innovation and quality, robust products developed to reduce network management time by using cloud-managed data communication products such as access points and switches.
Gilat Telecom has 30 years of experience in satellite and fiber-based connectivity solutions and is well known in Africa as a leading communications solutions company.
Amir Cohen, chief technology officer of Gilat Telecom, says: “As a distributor, we are now much closer to the network owner and operator. This means that we can work on network specs with our African partners at a much earlier stage – and ensure that the potential is maximised. Quantum develops intuitive networking products that provide reliable secured connectivity for mobile devices and management through applications with less than five minute setups.”
Abhijit Potdar, vice-president: sales at Quantum, comments: “Our products are loved by customers in Africa and we couldn’t keep up with demand. We spent a long time evaluating companies from across the ecosystem who could help us – and match our high standards. Gilat Telecom stood head and shoulders above its competitors. It’s a fantastic company that knows the African market inside out and wants to build networks to the highest standards”.
