Sourcing Solutions LLC Announces Formation of Advanced Networking Division and NETPATIBLES Brand
COSTA MESA, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Sourcing Solutions LLC has announced the formation of an Advanced Networking Division focused on delivering best-in-class compatible versions of advanced networking products with the launch of its NETPATIBLES brand of optical products.
Available now through an expanded and exclusive alliance with Ingram Micro Inc. (NYSE: IM), the NETPATIBLES product line addresses the growing needs of enterprise and data center operators to expand bandwidth capabilities and reduce costs. This can be accomplished by using 100% compatible alternatives to the major networking hardware manufactures’ offerings for up to 80% in savings.
“The formation of our Advanced Networking Division and concurrent launch of our NETPATIBLES brand of products marks a historic event in our company’s history,” said Sourcing Solutions CEO Michael Rubin. “Today we are extending our vision of providing alternative technology solutions that solve real customer lifecycle and budget issues with our own line of high-performance and high-value networking products.”
New Division Addresses Exploding Market for Advanced Networking Products
The initial focus of the Advanced Networking Division is the exploding market for optical transceiver products. A recent report published by WinterGreen Research projected that the optical transceiver market will grow to $9.9 billion worldwide by 2020. At the core of this growth is the exponential demand for bandwidth and response times brought on by the trends toward HD video content, the ubiquity of smartphones and tablets, and the move toward the cloud in enterprise and consumer applications.
Extension of Strategic Relationship with Ingram Micro
Many enterprise and data center customers have already benefited from Sourcing Solutions’ End-of-Life extension program for IT and networking products available through Ingram Micro under the IMSourcing program. The NETPATIBLES product line is a natural extension of this relationship as it broadens the solutions for alternatives that customers are seeking to gain maximum flexibility in their IT deployments while also reducing both initial hardware and on-going support costs. Ingram Micro, the leader in technology and supply chain services, will be the exclusive distributor of the NETPATIBLES product line in the U.S.
NETPATIBLES Product Line, 100% Compatible, Next Generation Technologies
The NETPATIBLES product line was designed from the ground up to be 100% compatible with major branded (OEM) networking equipment to allow end-users to confidently substitute these transceivers for the branded (OEM) parts without any worry of operability issues or loss of features. The product line includes over 4,000 optical products that are 100% compatible with more than 25 leading networking hardware brands including Cisco (NASDAQ: CSCO), Juniper (NYSE: JNPR), HP (NYSE: HPQ), Brocade (NASDAQ: BRCD) and Alcatel-Lucent (NYSE: ALU). The NETPATIBLES optical transceivers are available in today’s most popular speeds of 1000Base (1GB) and 10GB as well as next generation ultra-high bandwidth speeds of 40GB and 100GB with advanced technologies like tunable DWDM, EPON/GPON, and CPRI. Form factors supported are SFP/SFP+, XFP, QSFP/QSFP+, X2, Xenpak, and CFP/CFP2.
SmartSpare Program and Lifetime Warranty- Industry Leading Support of Network Uptime
End-user demand for more bandwidth and expectations for instant availability leave little room for today’s data centers when it comes to network availability and uptime. As a result, NETPATIBLES is launching an industry-leading service program to address these concerns. The SmartSpare program allows NETPATIBLES’ customers to keep advanced replacements parts on-site in their data centers. In the rare instance of product failure, replacement of a NETPATIBLES’ product is only seconds away, and network uptime is restored instantly. This alleviates the costly delays of other suppliers that require technical support calls, shipping times and other administrative bottlenecks. Additionally, all NETPATIBLES’ products carry a lifetime warranty reflecting the company’s confidence that it is providing best-in-class product quality and that it stands 100% behind its customers’ needs for network reliability.
Simply Smarter Networks - More than a Tag-Line
The NETPATIBLES brand of products carries the tag-line, Simply Smarter Networks. The company incorporated this not only as a marketing slogan but a credo by which it designs, manufacturers, tests, and supports its products. Leveraging the company’s heritage in sourcing and supply chain management, the NETPATIBLES product line delivers on this credo by combining 100% compatibility, leading-edge technology, best-in class service programs, lifetime warranty and stunning cost savings of up to 80% compared to the original branded equivalents.
