Ekinops has bolstered its UK presence by expanding its sales team and signing a distribution agreement for its OneAccess-branded portfolio with Exertis.

As a network access and virtualization specialist, Ekinops chose Exertis, as one of the country's largest and fastest growing technology distributors in the UK.

"An agile, partnership-driven approach is at the heart of Ekinops' offering. To deliver this, it is vital that alongside a skilled regional sales presence, we have a distribution partner who shares our values," said Frank Dedobbeleer, group vice president of sales EMEA & APAC at Ekinops.

"We pride ourselves on a strong global presence. In 2020, 63% of our total revenue came from international markets, an upward trend we intend to continue. The UK and Irish telecoms sector is undergoing a period of exciting growth and transformation, and enhancing our established presence and investments is key."

Ekinops' OneAccess portfolio delivers a wide range of innovative physical and virtualised solutions for enterprise network services.

In addition, the OneAccess-branded routers deployed in combination with OneOS6 built-in services, means network functions such as SD-WAN can be activated on demand. This in turn enables flexible, futureproof network management capabilities and accommodates diversifying and growing connectivity demands.

"As one of the UK's largest and most trusted technology distributors, we pride ourselves on our strong vendor partnerships to deliver quality, cost-effective solutions for our customers," added Tom Cox, commercial director of the enterprise division at Exertis.

"Ekinops and its OneAccess portfolio embody these values. As a widely trusted, reliable and mature technology brand, we look forward to offering the OneAccess portfolio to our customers and facilitating truly next-gen network solutions."

Additionally, alongside its latest distribution agreement, Ekinops has also expanded its UK and Ireland sales team.
