ITEC, a Xerox Company, has been accredited as Aruba Managed Service Provider (MSP), enabling the company to deliver innovative network management services.
ITEC is an HPe Aruba Silver Partner and is now also certified as an Aruba MSP (Managed Services Provider) with only a few Aruba partners in the UK holding this status. This means that ITEC customers will now be able to access the latest, fully-managed cloud-based networking solutions from Aruba on a single “As A Service” basis with flexible OPEX and pay-per-use investment models.
The IT trend is moving away from traditional solution providers seeking a more adaptable and flexible delivery approach. Cloud technology offers the flexible direction businesses are heading towards. Cloud-based management services are also gaining momentum as customers look to offset budget and resource constraints while maintaining the ability to implement the technology solutions.
Jamie Jennrich, HPe Aruba Partner Business Manager said: “There is an ongoing trend in IT towards subscription-based models that enable customers to move costly infrastructure projects from a CAPEX spend to OPEX. With the launch of Aruba ESP (Edge Services Platform), ITEC are able to leverage Aruba’s market leading technology to build their own solutions whilst differentiating their proposition in the market.”
OPEX Network as a Service and Security As A Service models, offering a more predictable service and user experience along with greater financial flexibility, are increasingly seen as the future of networks. Companies migrating to a more agile, cost-effective cloud-based IT model can stay more competitive.
ITEC can now offer flexible subscription services built on Aruba’s Edge Services Platform (foundation) including WiFi, Networking and Cyber Security. Scaling up and down simply, and within the sizing of customer requirements.
“Delivering complete cloud-based network infrastructure and services, ITEC will be the one stop shop for the networking needs of our clients.”
Nick Orme, CEO at ITEC
