Global Telecom & Technology, a Multi-Network Operator, has entered into a sales channel agreement with Avaya Germany, the German subsidiary of Avaya. The announcement marks the latest milestone of a successful long-term association between the two companies.
Based on the agreement signed with GTT’s EMEA operating unit, GTT will use its relationships with more than 100 telecommunications service providers and its ability to provide enterprise networking services to over 50 countries to source, provision and maintain customized global networks for the end customers of Avaya Germany. Avaya Germany will thus be able to offer data services to multinational and international customers, outside its core domestic market.
“Our partnership with GTT gives us the flexibility to offer customers global end-to-end communications solutions from multiple carriers through a single supplier as well as providing them with the highest possible levels of network availability,” says Rolf Bachmann, central sales manager, carrier sales, Avaya Germany. “GTT’s strength in mobility solutions enables us to provide global connectivity for these solutions to the benefit of our customers and allows us to support their implementation at customer sites around the world,” continues Bachmann.
Chris Britton, Executive Vice President of GTT EMEA says: “We see Avaya Germany as a key strategic partner and it has an excellent reputation within the telecoms sector. This agreement gives us the opportunity to sell our broad portfolio of data communications services through its extensive user base of business customers across Germany.”
Brian Thompson, GTT’s Executive Chairman and acting Chief Executive Officer commented: “This agreement represents a major step forward for GTT’s strategy of extending its reach via partnerships. It underlines the value that our multi-network operator business model can provide to other integrators and technology partners and their customers. It also demonstrates GTT’s ability to support indirect sales channels. We look forward to supporting Avaya Germany in delivering world-class solutions to its customers.”
