Siemon Arista Forum Lagos June19 1IT network infrastructure provider Siemon and computer networking company Arista Networks have collaborated to share their expertise at the recent ‘Cloud & Infrastructure Development Forum’ in Lagos

The forum provided insight into major technologies that can successfully enable pan-African businesses to migrate to the cloud and support a growing digital economy. The partners also demonstrated how complimentary manufacturers’ collaboration to deliver a turnkey solution for cloud deployments can add real value to customers.

The forum was aimed at data centre/colocation carriers, telecommunications, financial and educational institutions, installers as well as public sector and government organisations who especially benefited from understanding how to leverage software-driven, cognitive cloud networking solutions and deploy the right passive infrastructure products for a robust, future-proof deployment.

Dinesh OP, technical manager for Africa at Siemon, said, “Nigeria truly has a need for speed. With many business-critical applications consuming vast amounts of data coupled with the rise of connected devices via the Internet of Things (IoT), organisations need to be equipped with the right infrastructure to deliver robust networks.

In coming together with Arista Networks, Siemon underscores its strategy to add value to its customers by working in partnership with complementary manufacturers.

James Kiriamiti, marketing and partner manager for Europe, Russia and Africa, added, “As cloud-driven technologies continue to see vast growth globally, relationships such as that of industry leaders Siemon and Arista work well to deliver proven, high-quality solutions that complement each other and provide great benefits to the customer.”

Taking a look into the future, he concluded, “The growth that Nigeria and other sub-Saharan countries are enjoying is fundamentally driven by the appetite for a technology seen across various sectors. The right networking solutions can deliver sustained support for Africa’s evolving digital economy and we are keen to continue discussing these critical topics with IT leaders in the future.”
