Sandler Partners SoCal Partner Summit
Oct 26, 2017
For those out of the loop, here’s a quick recap: QOS Networks is now a provider in the portfolio of solutions for Master Agent Sandler Partners. Starting in October, our two organizations joined forces to increase access to the QOS bundle of SD-WAN solutions leveraging best-in-class SD WAN, Service Management, and Security Solutions. The partnership works in everyone’s favor to significantly extend the QOS channel presence.
On October 25, we attended the Sandler Partners SoCal partner summit in Redondo Beach, where agents joined from across California and other states to engage in training sessions from industry speakers on topics ranging from SD-WAN to cybersecurity to contact center.
Frank Cittadino, Chief Executive Officer of QOS, unveiled the solution suite at the SoCal Partner Summit during the SD-WAN and Connectivity Panel.
The SD-WAN and Connectivity Panel
Hosted by Eric Beller, Senior Vice President of Sales at Sandler Partners, the panel included providers alongside us — T-Mobile, Windstream, Cox, GeoLinks, Comcast, Telstra, Zero Outages, and more.
The specific topic of conversation was the nature of connectivity. Unlike SD-WAN bundled with the carrier product mix, the QOS solution enables partners to establish a reliable connection regardless of provider and can extend multiple MPLS VPNs from various carriers with dedicated customer gateways all optimized for the cloud.
QOS Shares a Story
The expert panel discussed network options for ensuring high performance, security, and continuity for effective and innovative customer cloud deployments. Cittadino explained how QOS assisted a company with a carve-out and created a full SD-WAN for 70 locations throughout the nation.
Besides the scope of locations, the real challenge was to create the entire network carved out of a complex MPLS network with multiple data centers in less than 45 days. QOS implemented SD WAN along with broadband and 4G with to deliver consistent network quality across the nation in a very short amount of time.
Overall, the Sandler SoCal event was a huge success. We enjoyed attending the panel and discussing emerging technologies with our peers. We continue to build and strengthen existing relationships with both agents and MSPs alike.
