Compaq Services has signed on with Cabletron as an accredited reseller of the Spectrum management package.
Officials from both companies said that the agreement strengthens the relationship between the two companies.
"Compaq Services is a highly regarded partner with tremendous net- working, systems integration and enterprise management capabilities, and therefore fits perfectly with our strategy for Spectrum," said Cabletron's Australian managing director Ian Fewtrell.
"By signing a select group of Spectrum resellers, we ensure the value of the product for end users is maintained and after-sale service is delivered at the highest standard."
Mike Roguski, sales manager for Compaq Services, said : "Partnering with Cabletron and Spectrum opens up new opportunities for Compaq Services. It gives us a quality solution allowing us to give customers another value-added service for multivendor network management." Compaq has already begun training staff on Spectrum and will have consultants ready to support the product later this year.
