Industry's First Turnkey Product Logistics Offering For WAN Security And Optimization Resellers, Reducing VAR Costs And Eliminating Margin Leakage

Freedom Networks, the global leader in Optimized Bandwidth Aggregation Solutions, today announced the launching  of its ExpressBITS (build-integrate-test-ship) program for resellers of its Express Line of Appliances. This unique, comprehensive program dramatically reduces costs and complexity for network VARs deploying private and public cloud-customer solutions. With today's release, WAN security and optimization value-added resellers and distributors can offer a single 1U Express Appliance, replacing multiple WAN security and optimization point products while eliminating most build, install, configure, test and logistic costs. This combined with the ability to select a best-of-breed virtual WAN optimization from companies like Expand, Netex and SilverPeak, based on specific customer solution, makes it the optimal platform for today's resellers of firewall, load balancing, packet shaping, optimization, and network availability/resiliency solutions. In short: a unified secure WAN Optimized Aggregation Unification platform.

Martin Vargas, VP for leading security, network and optimization, VAR Axcelerate Networks in San Francisco, comments, "The ability to provide my customers complete secure bonded solutions with a choice of WAN optimization enables me to address almost any WAN issue with the Freedom Express line. Adding the no-cost Freedom ExpressBITS turnkey service ensures my customers get a fully configured and tested solution, effectively eliminating any added costs and margin leakage that used to decrease my profitability. We no longer have to assign valuable pre-sales technical resources or billable consulting resources to build, test, configure or ship. We simply upload the WAN optimization virtual appliance from the selected vendor to Freedom and they take care of the rest. The box arrives ready to be installed, reducing time on site due to product set-up or configuration issues. The best part - it comes at no additional cost as part of ordering an ExpressGuardian or ExpressSeries platform. And support. It's a no-brainer."

Lee Steinlauf, Freedom Networks' CEO, comments, "As a leader in Optimized Bandwidth Aggregation, we saw the need not only for feature-function consolidation in the WAN and Cloud space, we also recognized the need to streamline the value chain for resellers. With the ExpressBITS program we help our partners keep costs down."

Express Optimized Bandwidth Aggregation Appliances with ExpressBITS service start at under $4,000. For more information, contact Freedom Networks at to learn more about the Express and the free trial offer, or to learn about our global partner programs.
