Phoenix awarded Huawei Gold Enterprise Partner
Phoenix, the leading provider of Cloud and IT Managed Services across the UK, is pleased to announce that it has been selected by Huawei Enterprise as a Gold Partner. Phoenix will be working strategically with Huawei to deliver network solutions and services to help drive innovative services to the market.
Phoenix has a strong position in the mid-market, and the new partnership will help Huawei successfully target the mid-sized customer space. Phoenix will be undertaking a series of marketing initiatives with Huawei to showcase its networking story demonstrating how organisations can drive significant operational improvements, while at the same time as reducing their network infrastructure costs. Phoenix has benchmarked this and believes that Huawei solutions are a compelling proposition for the SMB market segment. Huawei is in a strong place to meet the demands of the UK market with Huawei’s networking solutions deployed with 45 of the top 50 Global Telecoms operators, 70,000 employees engaged in research & development and significant investment being placed in the UK.
Phoenix will be working with Huawei on the development of its MPLS Service for long distance network routing. In addition, Phoenix is working on a long term investment and training plan with many of their technical teams already receiving training. They will be developing their capability in pre-sales, technical architects, deployment and support services. Huawei has only awarded one other UK company Gold Partner status. Phoenix has also recently secured HP Platinum accreditation.
Chief Executive of Phoenix IT, Steve Vaughan, said: “As an industry leader in IT services and a company that really understands the mid-market, we are excited that Phoenix has been selected by Huawei to deliver and develop Managed IT Services.
