Arrcus, the hyper-scale networking software company and a leader in core-to-edge infrastructure, announced the addition of new partners to its Partner with ACE (PACE) ecosystem program. Seventeen PACE members, from North and South America, Europe, Africa and Asia, have joined the expanding PACE ecosystem to accelerate their ability to integrate with Arrcus’ ACE platform and deliver routing, switching and 5G solutions to customers faster and more efficiently.
In the past few months, PACE has gained several key ecosystem partners, increasing their ability to develop and ship products faster and more collaboratively to help customers advance their digital transformation, which is critical to compete in today’s marketplace.
“The PACE program offers new ability for Arrcus partners to build solutions and generate new product and service revenue,” said Shekar Ayyar, CEO and chairman at Arrcus. “Our growing list of ecosystem partners provides our enterprise and communication services provider customers with the solutions that they need to propel their digital transformations and modernize their networks.”
Among the newest members to the PACE program are:
A5G Networks, Acanto, ACL Digital, Atrinet, Avanseus, Edgecore, EPS Global, FRINX, MapleLabs, Netcube, Pure Infrastructure, QuadGenWireless, Quanta, UfiSpace, VIAVI Solutions, Xoriant and Rohde & Schwarz.
The PACE program is a powerful combination of APIs, solutions and ecosystem partners created to expedite customers’ digital transformation. PACE enables partners – from hardware vendors to software, cloud, technology partners and resellers – to build, validate and certify their solutions with the ACE 2.0 platform. Arrcus offers two tiers, standard and advanced, for its PACE partner program. Ecosystem partners can choose the option that best enables them to meet their unique business objectives.
PACE program members have access to several benefits including:
- Early ACE SDK and API access
- Product integration verification
- Product certification and certification badges
- Co-marketing including internal and external webinars, press releases, website listing and events
The growth of the PACE program is in response to the Arrcus Connected Edge (ACE) platform seeing widespread adoption across all the key verticals. ACE is a platform for customers looking to improve their data center economics through merchant silicon alternatives to traditional routers and switches. Communications and media service providers are discovering the benefit of a software-defined disaggregated architecture for transport network routing and switching across core, edge and cell site router use cases as 5G adoption expands. Cloud and multi-cloud networking is also a fast-growing market segment for the Arrcus ACE multi-cloud networking solution. FlexMCN from Arrcus ensures underlay network connectivity and granular policy control for hybrid and multi-cloud cloud operations and security.
Complementing the PACE program, Arrcus is building partnerships with leading marketplaces where its ACE platform and solutions are featured:
- AWS Marketplace
- VMware Telco Marketplace
- PagerDuty Marketplace
- CoreSite Marketplace
- Equinix Marketplace
- TCS Cubo Marketplace
