ScanSource Networking and Security on Tuesday entered into a distribution agreement with Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE).

As a U.S. distribution partner, ScanSource says it will be able to offer customers an expanded portfolio of networking services – including wired, wireless, campus and data center networking services, routing and switching – along with network management and security – all of which are operated by Aruba following its acquisition by HPE.

All of ScanSource’s U.S. business units will have access to a full line of routing and switching products from HPE Aruba that complement ScanSource’s security cameras, point-of-sale systems, UC products and other IP devices. Also, resellers will be able to provide a complete offering from the networking closet to the end device.{ad}

“We are excited to expand our networking capabilities at ScanSource by joining the HPE Distribution Network,” said Christie Hamberis, ScanSource Networking and Security’s senior vice president. “We have had a long-standing, successful relationship with Aruba and this new agreement with HPE will allow us to expand our portfolio of hardware and services with additional solutions that complement the products we currently sell, enabling us to deliver an even broader set of leading-edge networking solutions to our reseller partners.”

A business unit of ScanSource, ScanSource Networking and Security provides physical security products and networking services. ScanSource also has a relationship with HPE in Brazil.

“This new agreement reflects ScanSource’s demonstrated commitment to enabling reseller success,” said Jim Harold, Aruba’s vice president of channels. “With it, ScanSource will be able to deliver an even broader set of leading-edge networking solutions to its customers, and we are looking forward to continuing our work with them to meet reseller needs.”

We know the channel loves SD-WAN. What's the next big "software-defined" sales opportunity?
