In the last six months ITS has signed up 15 wholesale partners to sell services across a number of their networks. ITS expects to add four more major networks to their current portfolio of 21 networks by the end of 2016, making a total of 25, all of which will form part of their national network strategy.
The national strategy will see the amalgamation of disparate networks into one single wholesale network offering tier 2 and tier 3 products and services. This consolidated national network will provide complete resilience, diversity, scalability and availability at very attractive price points and lead-times. The growing list of partners will be able to make cost savings by limiting the number of data centres they need to connect to in order to access multiple locations throughout the UK with enhanced delivery timescales.
ITS’s approved service provider relationships include partners such as Novus Group, Vapour Media, Efuse Telecom and Oryx Align. Lisa Harding, Head of Strategic Partnerships said, “We have been very careful to select partners that have specific industry sector experience such as in education, residential buildings and business parks. This considered approach benefits both partners and end-users, it avoids conflict in the channel and provides end-users with a partner that really understands their unique requirements. We will continue to work strategically with a chosen number of key partners to drive increased adoption of services throughout the UK.”
Novus Networks have found their niche in providing virtualisation and IT services to the education sector. Donald Alison, Managing Director said, “Good connectivity is an important part of our overall solution; with a solid internet connection users have continuity of service without latency, making it a richer experience. We have worked with ITS to provide high bandwidth services to several education establishments in the last couple of months. ITS are our connectivity service provider of choice.”
Tim Mercer, Co-founder and CEO of Vapour Media said, “We focus on providing SME’s and tier 3 resellers comprehensive connectivity services backed by training, a managed installation and support. ITS is an ideal cultural fit for us to provide services to our customers and channel.”
