The two companies have entered into a long-term partnership, with Giacom acting as a distributor for Sky Business Wholesale services and Sky Business Wholesale a new supplier for Giacom.
The companies will combine their experience, scale and ambition to provide the Channel with a range of services including mobile backup and Wi-Fi solutions, with security features.
These solutions will be configured to work out of the box and to provide a differentiated product offering for partners. Initially, Giacom partners can access layer-2 Ethernet services using Sky’s network to support the growing bandwidth demands of their customers. Further product releases are scheduled in the coming months.
Damian Saunders, managing director, Sky Business Mid-Market and Wholesale said, “Our purpose is to provide better solutions to keep businesses moving forward, which is why we’re working in partnership with Giacom, one of the largest aggregators of services in the Channel, to offer a better choice of connectivity.
“By drawing on their experience and expertise, we’re developing a Channel-first product portfolio that’s versatile, easy to implement, and cost effective for our partners.
“Giacom’s Cloud Market portal also offers seamless integration with our provisioning systems, ensuring a smooth and efficient order journey is delivered for our partners and their customers.”
Terry O’Brien, CEO, Giacom (pictured), added, “We’re very pleased to be expanding our relationship with Sky Business and to be giving our partners access to such an exciting new range of Connectivity services.
“Sky Business has worked closely with our team to develop a really compelling portfolio of products that are truly disruptive and feature incredible innovations.
“This partnership with Sky Business will provide our partners with the chance to differentiate and gain a competitive advantage as we fast approach 2025.”
