Extreme brings ScanSource partnership to UK shores

Alex Scroxton
LAN infrastructure specialist Extreme Networks has added convergence distie ScanSource to its UK line-up alongside Mayflex and Westcon.

The distributor, which already worked with Extreme on the continent, brings skills in IP and wireless networks that the vendor said today it is keen to exploit, as well as channel-focused credit solutions.

Extreme UK and Ireland regional director Gary Newbold said the appointment represented "another step" towards its objective of boosting its market share through a more restrictive, specialist channel programme.

Extreme invested in a new VAR programme two years ago, and has been vocal in advocating a multi-vendor, collaborative approach to the network that has put it at odds with sector kingpin Cisco.
