Just weeks after it announced plans to establish distribution relationships in the UK the Chinese comms and networking vendor Huawei has taken the wraps off its first data channel appointment.
Micro-P has been signed up to expand the reseller base for the vendor and will stock a range of products including core and edge networking, routing appliances and Telepresence solutions.
At the start of the month the vendor indicated that it wanted to extend its enterprise reach having signed its first Europe-wide distribution deal with 20:20 Mobile to handle its mobility range.
David Poskett, Huawei enterprise channel director UK and Ireland, said that he was glad it had inked a contract with a large channel player that would deliver the numbers around its enterprise ambitions.
"Their experience, leadership and expertise, particularly in the SMB marketplace, will provide a great platform to deliver the growth planned for Huawei's UK&I enterprise business," he said.
From a Micro-P perspective Paul Bryan, sales and commercial director at the distributor, said that it had been establishing its credentials in the networking and comms arena over the last three years and it also had the links to push sales through to the enterprise space.
