Abingdon, Oxfordshire. Feb 7, 2018 — Open Reality, one of the UK’s leading IT specialists, and Ekahau, the global leader in enterprise Wi-Fi network design solutions announced the renewal of their distribution agreement in the United Kingdom for 2018. Under the terms of the new agreement, Open Reality will continue to market, sell, and support Ekahau’s full product portfolio including its flagship Site Survey & Planner software – Ekahau Site Survey and 3D Planner and the newly released all-in-one Wi-Fi diagnostics and measurement device, Ekahau Sidekick™.
Since partnering in 2006 the demands placed on Wi-Fi networks has increased exponentially as Wi-Fi becomes the de-facto carrier for Cloud, IoT, video, and cellular data offloading. These mission-critical business applications are pushing the performance boundaries of Wi-Fi networks, and thus they must be designed and deployed with increased precision and capacity. The Ekahau Site Survey and 3D Planner helps enterprises conquer Wi-Fi issues by streamlining wireless design, troubleshooting and optimization.
“Our relationship has gone from strength-to-strength over the past 12 years and we’re really pleased to be signing this new agreement with Ekahau. We are excited about helping our partners create unique service offerings which allow them to deliver the right solution for each customer well into the future.” said Duncan Little, Managing Director, Open Reality Limited.
“In working with Open Reality for more than a decade, we have been very impressed with the work they are doing in the UK. We look forward to continuing to work together to provide even more organisations with industry-leading Wi-Fi diagnostics and measurement tools so they can design, deploy, validate and maintain better Wi-Fi.” said Ben Hasselblatt, Head of Sales for Ekahau in EMEA.
