NBN Co recruits partners to help businesses connect to network

By

NBN Co's ICT channel program, launched to provide training to specialist technology consultants so that they understand how to connect to its network, has grown to include more than 300 organisations, 75 of whom are business accredited advisers.

The company said it had now appointed four technology distributors to work with its sales and marketing support teams to help provide businesses with information they needed about Australia's broadband network, the NBN.

The four distributors are Dicker Data, Ingram Micro, Westcon-Comstor and Aria Technologies.

NBN Co's general manager for Business Channels, Keith Masterton, said in a blog post: "By teaming up with these distributors and their thousands of partners, we are creating a far-reaching channel to provide the education, advice, services and solutions that businesses need as they transition to the NBN Co access network."

Lee Welch, Ingram Micro’s director – Cloud Services ANZ, said: “Being a strategic participant of NBN Co’s ICT Channel Program will enable our network to better migrate and integrate business-ready technology solutions over the nbn™ access network and service their clients more effectively during their transition, and beyond, with the new capabilities provided to them with cloud services.”

Westcon-Comstor’s managing director Phil Cameron said: "Westcon-Comstor’s participation in NBN Co’s ICT channel program has helped us identify significant benefits partners can offer business customers moving services to the nbn™ access network and sees our partner network better positioned to service clients. Partners that have participated in the program will also be able to assist their customers to take advantage of a once-in-a-generation business transformation with solutions connected over the NBN Co access network."

Dicker Data’s general manager – Software, Pennie Stevens, said: "By being a strategic participant of the NBN Co ICT Channel Program, we’ll enable our partner network to access information to help them migrate and integrate business-ready modern technology solutions. This opens our partners up to the opportunity to service their clients with their connectivity transition and drive further uptake of our cloud services.”

Aria Technologies’ director of Sales and Marketing, Peter Williamson, said: "Aria Technologies is delighted to be participating in NBN Co’s ICT Channel Program. As a major distributor of [information technology and telecommunication] IT&T solutions to Australian businesses via our network of more than 300 channel partners, it is essential that we are at the forefront of the ever-changing technology landscape.

"The NBN Co access network is an industry game changer and this new program will help to equip our partners with the necessary know-how to educate and advise their business customers with authority.”
