Tanaza and Edgecore Networks announce strategic partnership
Milan, Italy – Tanaza, a leading provider of cloud-based wireless management software, and Edgecore Networks, a leading provider of traditional and open network solutions for enterprises, data centers, and telecommunication service providers, are excited to announce a strategic partnership to provide MSPs and IT professionals with powerful, integrated solutions for wireless networking.
Under this partnership, Tanaza will support Edgecore hardware with its software and Edgecore will make its products available through its distribution partners as Tanaza Powered. This means that they will connect to the Tanaza cloud platform out-of-the-box.
Adopting Tanaza Powered Edgecore APs offers several advantages for MSPs and IT professionals, including:
- Simplified management: With Tanaza’s cloud-based platform, MSPs and IT professionals can easily and efficiently manage and monitor their customers’ Wi-Fi networks from one place
- Cost-effective solution, with enterprise-grade hardware: The combination of Edgecore’s robust equipment and the Tanaza platform allows customers to easily scale their networks from small & simple deployments to demanding high-density scenarios
- Flexible and scalable: Tanaza offers a cost-effective comprehensive feature-set to providers of managed Wi-Fi services. And it can be extended with additional features to meet specific customer requirements, thanks to add-ons and 3rd party integrations in a continuously expanding marketplace
- Free for small deployments: Under the Tanaza Basic plan, it’s possible to set up a network of up to three APs and keep it operational with no time limit. This means that this first (small) customer could even be managed with Tanaza completely free-of-charge
In addition to this partnership, Edgecore distributor STORDIS (operating from Germany and serving all EMEA), will provide Edgecore EAP102-T Wi-Fi6 devices to selected MSPs. This will allow MSPs to experience firsthand the benefits of the hardware/software combination enabled by this partnership.
“We are thrilled to partner with Edgecore to provide MSPs and IT professionals with powerful, integrated solutions for wireless networking,” said Sebastiano Bertani, CEO of Tanaza. “By combining Edgecore’s enterprise-grade equipment with our cloud-based software and marketplace, we deliver unprecedented levels of robustness and flexibility together”.
