Article: PowerCloud and ZyXEL Team Up for Cloud-Managed Networking

Blogger Dave Courbanou of popular The VAR Guy site picked up our news earlier this week about our new strategic agreement with ZyXEL Communications and calls it a “good fit.”  The VAR Guy is the IT channel’s most popular blog.

Network equipment provider ZyXEL has formed a strategic agreement with PowerCloud for cloud-based networking solutions that are aimed at the service provider and SMB market. PowerCloud has been focused on cloud-software for OEMs, so the partnership seems like a good fit, especially for the SMB space. Read on for the details …

Under the new agreement, ZyXEL and PowerCloud will jointly develop the solutions, and the first joint ZyXEL-PowerCloud device will be an enterprise-grade wireless access point for SMBs integrated with PowerCloud’s CloudCommand technology. With PowerCloud onboard, the AP is designed to be easier to set, deploy and manage.

The whole point of the idea is to create an affordable “feature-rich” device that helps SMBs leverage cloud computing more easily, while also being best-in-class, according to the companies. It’s too soon for price points and new devices, but we’ll be keeping tabs on the relationship, especially since it touches so close to what our sister site covers, at TalkinCloud.com.
