Avnet to Distribute PacketLight Networks' Products

PacketLight Networks has announced that Avnet Technology Solutions will distribute PacketLight's suite of products for storage area networks (SAN) connectivity in the UK. This expands Avnet's storage line-up, enabling the company to provide resellers with complete storage solutions.

Under this agreement, Avnet's Partner Solutions division will distribute PacketLight's complete line of storage extension solutions for CDWM, DWDM, SDH and IP networks. These products enable carriers and enterprises to deploy highly reliable disaster recovery and business continuity applications at significantly lower investment and operational costs.

As many global businesses strive to meet new regulatory compliance (such as SOX 404, BASEL II, HIPPA, etc.) for disaster recovery and business continuity, PacketLight's broad range of storage extension products covers a wide variety of bandwidths and network topologies that in turn reduce operational costs. This is achieved by edge devices located at the customer's premises providing data connectivity between separate SAN sites, whatever their distance from each other, thus meeting the distance requirements between main and back-up sites.

Avnet has evaluated storage extension products and found that PacketLight covers all network topologies (IP, SDH & WDM), has an extensive bandwidth range covering the needs of small, medium and large enterprises and offers cost effective solutions in this unique market place.

Avnet will provide its customers with a full storage solution including storage platforms, software applications and connectivity equipment provided by PacketLight.
