Reading, UK, 24th November, 2011- Value-added Distributor, Cloud Distribution Ltd, today announced the signing of a new partner, Astro Communications, to deliver Meraki’s Wi-Fi technology to the communication infrastructure industry.

Astro Communications has been providing specialist business communications, connectivity and network infrastructure solutions for more than 27 years, offering organisations assistance with troubleshooting, consultancy, installations, changes and upgrades. The company also works directly with product developers and inventors and has extensive experience of building and testing solutions to exacting standards.

The rise of Cloud Computing prompted Astro Communications to consider diversifying its solutions and services, as its clients increasingly requested a cloud-based alternative. The company’s dedication to excellence meant that it was very particular about what technology it would adopt when enhancing its technology portfolio. Technical Director for Astro Communications, Steve Smith comments:

“We have a reputation for helping our clients deploy the right technology for their current and future business needs rather than just promoting the latest technology, therefore when we decided to approach our marketplace from a cloud perspective, it was important that we chose a solution that was reliable, secure and robust. Luckily for us we have known Donna Heath at Cloud Distribution for years and so when she came to us with the Meraki cloud-based wireless solution, we knew it would be ideal. Meraki is a fantastic technology that really captures your imagination and is one of those products you wish you’d thought of yourself.”

The Meraki technology sits well within Astro Communications’ current portfolio. Meraki is an innovative technology and specialises in bringing networking infrastructure to enterprises by leveraging the Cloud. With Meraki’s out of the box Wi-Fi solution on-board, Astro Communications is now able to offer its clients increased visibility, security, self-configuration, scalability and fully integrated management - completing its offering.

“We’re delighted to have Astro Communications on board as a new partner, as they have the right profile of customer for Meraki and I have every confidence that they will be able to take Meraki to market effectively. Astro Communications has a very stringent process for accrediting technologies and any product must go through an in-house testing prior to being allowed onto the sales portfolio. The fact that Meraki passed with flying colours is a testament to the excellence of the technology, as well as the quality of vendors that we carry at Cloud Distribution,” explains Greg Harris, Co-founder and Sales Director of Cloud Distribution.

Astro Communications aims to continue this process of embracing new technologies and is also currently reviewing other solutions that Cloud Distribution works with.
