News and Business

HUBER+SUHNER is partnering with Comtec, one of the United Kingdom’s largest value-added distributors of IP infrastructure, to provide smart, simple and scalable fibre optic solutions for communication networks in both the carrier and enterprise markets.

As a leading supplier of high-quality communications systems across the data centre, LAN, WAN and access network markets, HUBER+SUHNER says it will bring unique offerings to Comtec, beginning with its comprehensive fibre management portfolio for data centres, including the LISA and IANOS systems.

“We are excited to deliver the quality solutions from HUBER+SUHNER that customers have come to trust and, by launching this partnership, we are making its premium solutions readily available to our customers throughout the UK.” Steve Melay, commercial manager at Comtec.

Comtec was recently acquired by the ETC Group, a major player in the telecommunications industry in the United States and Europe where HUBER+SUHNER is already an established partner, as part of a wider future strategy to claim the forefront of the supplier market.

“We are confident that this strategic partnership will enable us to develop and support new opportunities within the carrier and enterprise network sectors, and deliver solutions that meet the increasing demands for fibre optic technology,” said Simon Money, sales manager, data centre market at HUBER+SUHNER. “By working in partnership with Comtec, we can ensure that the needs of the market are addressed and that our customers have access to proven solutions that improve network infrastructure performance, enhance operations and drive their business forward.”

Following the partnership launch, customers will be able to access the full product portfolio on Comtec’s website, benefitting from a large stock availability to meet a range of requirements and deadlines.
