Nuvias has agreed an EMEA-wide distribution agreement with Norway's video conferencing and collaboration solutions vendor Pexip, adding the technology to its unified communications Nuvias UC unit.
As part of the deal, Pexip Cloud Video Conferencing solutions will strengthen Nuvias UC's existing conferencing portfolio, that includes brands such as Lifesize, BlueJeans, Poly, Yealink and Dolby.
Pexip supports tools such as Microsoft Teams, Google Hangouts Meet and Skype for Business in the same workflow as meeting room systems and mobile, desktop and web user platforms. Pexip enables the channel to deliver a cloud-native platform provided as-a-service or deployed as a self-hosted solution, either on-premises or in any cloud environment. “Video adoption has grown dramatically over the last five years and we continue to heavily invest in this area, said Steve Harris, CEO of Nuvias UC. “The video opportunity for partners is vast and Nuvias has the best-in-class vendors, dedicated video engineering and installation team, pre-sales experts and full sales and marketing enablement to support them.”
Henning Herdal, SVP for channels EMEA at Pexip, said: “As the channel continues to adapt to modern workplace trends, Nuvias UC has a comprehensive offering that will help it succeed both today and in the future.
“With its expertise and understanding of the video conferencing and collaboration market, combined with its specialist reseller and service provider network, Nuvias UC is an ideal addition to Pexip’s partner network.”
Nuvias UC said it will be offering training and free trials to ensure expert sales consultancy as well as other value-added services.
Pexip technology is currently sold through 300 channel partners in 75 countries and used in more than 190 countries. Last April, Cato Networks signed a pan-European distribution agreement with Nuvias for its Secure Access Service Edge (SASE) platform. Cato converges SD-WAN connectivity and network security into a global, cloud-native service.
