Qligent Names MDL Its Manufacturer’s Rep/Reseller For Canada
Qligent has a new strategic partnership in Canada with MDL Communications, a technical consultancy and value-added reseller with offices in Toronto and Montreal. The agreement designates MDL as the exclusive manufacturer’s representative for Qligent’s network monitoring and analysis solutions in Canada.
In addition to recommending and reselling best-in-class products, MDL also provides varied technical services, including systems design, strategic marketing, project management, engineering and systems integration. MDL serves Canada’s broadband, IPTV and OTT service providers, and has relationships with Canadian service providers and broadcasters including Bell Canada, Cogeco Cable, Rogers Communications, Shaw, Telus and all Tier 2 and 3 operators as well.
“With the onslaught of advances transforming our industry, our customers look to us for advice on the most cost-effective, next-gen solutions for streamlining their operations, solving their networking challenges, and retaining and growing their revenue and subscriber base,” said Stephen Sacks, president-founder of MDL Communications, based in Ontario, Canada.
“While many of the companies we represent offer some type of systems or product monitoring, none of them offer the big data analytics, AI and quality of service monitoring that Qligent provides across the enterprise, and out to the last mile,” Sacks said. “Qligent goes beyond monitoring to empower users with actionable data that they can use to quickly address, resolve, and even prevent emerging network issues before they compromise the subscribers’ quality of experience. Our pitch is that Qligent’s monitoring solutions ensure uptime, reduce churn, and protect the bottom line, and that’s a powerful value proposition.”
Sacks points to the highly scalable Vision Analytics platform as particularly compelling for his customers. Vision Analytics harnesses the power of data mining, machine learning, and predictive data analytics to help preserve brand value, providing MSO’s, MVPDs, telcos, and other network service providers a comprehensive assessment of network performance.
“We’re thrilled that MDL has agreed to represent our media and network delivery assurance solutions — and our innovative use of big data mining and analytics — across Canada,” said Art Leisey, business development officer for Qligent. “We particularly value this partnership because of the strength of MDL’s sales team and customer relationships, and their deep knowledge and understanding of how best to position and promote our technology to this growing Canadian market.”
