Sidera Networks adds X4 Solutions as a Master Agent to Its Channel Program

New York – August 24, 2011 Sidera Networksthe premier provider of fiber optic-based network solutions, announced today that X4 Solutions, a leading master agent, has joined Sidera’s Channel Program, expanding X4’s service portfolio by adding flexible, high-bandwidth, low-latency network services including Ethernet and Wavelength connectivity.

“X4 is an ideal partner for us because of the team’s focus on providing high quality support and a dedication to offering advanced business solutions,” said Tony Bloom, VP of Wholesale Sales for Sidera Networks.

The agreement between Sidera and X4 Solutions has already yielded positive results. One of X4’s clients had an aggressive schedule to move into its new Chicago headquarters and ran into unexpected problems with its network vendor.  X4 and Sidera responded immediately and were able to design a solution that met all of the client’s requirements.  Sidera Networks constructed and deployed a brand new, fiber-based Ethernet connection in less than three weeks, allowing the customer to move in on schedule.

“We are excited to add Sidera to our portfolio,” said Steve Braverman, X4 Founder & CEO. “Sidera is an industry leader, and their capabilities will allow us to pursue more opportunities. Their commitment to service and focus on the channel gives our agent base a distinct advantage.”

Sidera’s Channel Program was enhanced and re-launched earlier this year to offer agents a flexible program structure that includes focused resources and dedicated support. Sidera’s channel partners can expand their capabilities by leveraging a network of nearly 2,800 on-net locations and more than 12,500 route miles.  Once an agent joins Sidera’s Channel Program, they receive instant access to sales and marketing support and tools, and can immediately offer high quality solutions to their clients.

Sidera will be exhibiting at the Channel Partners Conference and Expo at the Hyatt Regency McCormick Place in Chicago from August 24 – 26 at booth #1108, and X4 will be exhibiting in booth #1430.  Schedule a meeting with Sidera to learn how Sidera’s Channel Partner Program can help you to grow your business.
