Arrow Electronics and Megaport sign EMEA distribution deal

Global technology provider Arrow Electronics has signed an EMEA distribution agreement with Megaport, a network as a service (NaaS) provider.

By adding Megaport’s private Software Defined Network platform to its offering, Arrow aims to help firms across EMEA modernise their networks and accelerate digital transformation.

Megaport is an Arrow vendor that offers agile networking capabilities that helps reduce operating costs and increase speed to market. Its NaaS platform provides private, scalable and on-demand connectivity to cloud service providers, such as Alibaba Cloud, AWS and Google Cloud Platform among others. 

“After security, cloud optimisation is a top priority for the CTO, and having the best cloud connections to optimise costs is top of mind for most organisations going through digital transformation,” said Alexis Brabant (pictured), vice president of sales for Arrow’s enterprise computing solutions business in EMEA. “We’re pleased to be working with Megaport to help them expand and deepen their channel relationships.”

Rodney Foreman, CRO at Megaport, added: “Bringing Megaport’s leading NaaS platform into the Arrow Electronics portfolio will make it easier for Arrow’s customers to modernise their customers’ network connectivity and provide quick access to leading cloud service providers. Arrow’s global scale and reach, combined with their expertise in IT solutions, make them an ideal choice to help us expand our footprint in EMEA.”
