Westcon-Comstor Adds Viavi Observer to Portfolio

Managing disparate systems is a major pain point for more than 80 percent of enterprises using a hybrid IT strategy. To help companies overcome this challenge, Westcon-Comstor, the value-added technology distributor, has added the Viavi Observer Platform to its unified communications and collaboration (UCC) portfolio.

The platform is a full-service IT solution for optimizing application and network performance management.

“The key differentiator for the Viavi Observer Platform is that it is the highest performing and most scalable packet capture solution in the industry,” said Sergio Bea, vice president, Worldwide Channels, Viavi. “Observer has been named as a leader in the Gartner Magic Quadrant for network performance monitoring and diagnostics for three years in a row. Our partnership with Westcon-Comstor will help us take this technology even further by broadening our footprint in the channel through its established solution provider network.”

The Viavi Observer Platform is comprised of seven solutions: Observer Apex, Observer Analyzer, Observer Gigastor, Observer Infrastructure, Observer Matrix, Observer nTAPs and SightOps. Each part of the system integrates with the other components to achieve global infrastructure visibility and to resolve service anomalies.

“The global unified communications market is projected to reach $75.8 billion by 2020. Bringing the Viavi Observer Platform into our UCC portfolio gives our solution providers the ability to capitalize on this global trend with a robust, innovative platform,” added Barat Dickman, vice president and general manager, Westcon-Comstor Unified Communications and Collaboration Solutions practice. “End users can benefit from increased agility, productivity and effectiveness from the platform, backed by support from our knowledgeable partners.”
