Arrow ECS Expands Networking Portfolio with Juniper Networks
ENGLEWOOD, Colo. (October 25, 2011) – Further establishing its leadership in the data center, Arrow Enterprise Computing Solutions, a business segment of Arrow Electronics Inc. [NYSE: ARW], will now distribute the full range of networking and data center solutions for Juniper Networks in the United States.
Arrow ECS now provides a complete line card of Juniper Networks solutions in the U.S., including the Junos(R) software platform and QFabric(TM) architecture.
"Arrow ECS has positioned itself at the forefront of the data-center convergence movement, connecting solution providers and their customers with industry-leading technology and services to support evolving business needs," said Andy Bryant, president of Arrow ECS. "This agreement increases our depth in networking and security solutions, adding technology that is in high demand among enterprise and midmarket customers for its performance and flexibility."
Juniper Networks embraces an open model for platform requirements, making its technology easy to integrate with other facets of the IT infrastructure.

The QFabric solution condenses traditional three-layer network down to a single layer and removes legacy barriers for improved business agility.
"As we work with our channel partners to leverage Juniper Networks' solutions to architect and deploy the next generation of data centers, this relationship will enhance our ability to provide them with an excellent range of support options particularly related to our joint data center opportunities," said Frank Vitagliano, senior vice president of America's partners, Juniper Networks.
