FusionLayer & Access Quality Announce New Strategic Partnership: Delivering Next Generation Network Solutions for Service Providers and Large Enterprises

Mexico City, Mexico, May 21, 2018 –(– FusionLayer and Access Quality have today announced that Access Quality SA de CV. Company certified in ISO 20000, based in Mexico City will start representing FusionLayer in the Central and South America regions as a Value-Added reseller (VAR). With their dedication to outstanding customer services, Access Quality will assume the responsibility for carrying out deployment projects and providing the first tier of technical support for the local markets, making it easy for service providers and large enterprises to leverage FusionLayer solutions as part of their digital transformation.

As service providers and large enterprises are embarking on digital transformation, their ability to automate network provisioning is often curtailed by excel spreadsheets that continue to be used for the management of networks, VLANs and VRFs. Considering that any automated process is only as efficient as its slowest step, these manual network management processes translate to service activation lead-times that continue to be measured in weeks or even months.

“With various Digital Transformation initiatives kicking up gear in Latin America, we are seeing an increasing demand for FusionLayer solutions in the region,” stated Juha Holkkola, the Co-Founder and Chief Technologist of FusionLayer. “I am truly impressed by the pride that Access Quality takes in offering first-class service to customers. Like any change of this magnitude, digital transformation boils down to people driving the change. This is why regional specialists like Access Quality have a key role as local change agents.”

Access Quality will be delivering and supporting FusionLayer solutions that enable end-to-end automation and zero-touch network provisioning in multi-tenant, multi-cloud and multi-vendor environments. This possibility is enabled by FusionLayer’s patented technologies and REST API allowing integration with market leading private clouds, public clouds, SDNs, cloud orchestrators, and DevOps solutions, as well as physical network devices through orchestrators such as Ansible.

“We have been impressed by the network, VLAN and VRF management capabilities that FusionLayer solutions offer to service providers and large enterprises within the region,” said Guillermo Tirado, the Director General of Access Quality SA de CV. “Many of our customers are working on digital transformation projects that aim at end-to-end automation for increased service agility and reduced Operating Expense (OPEX). We see that FusionLayer provides a clearly differentiated solution that delivers unique value to our customers.”
