Supporting the integration of new technologies for enterprise

Sol Distribution can provide a number of solutions for the Enterprise sector; in fact this is the sector that the company has traditionally sold its products into before expanding into other, more specialist markets. Enterprises today face a rapidly shifting technology landscape, where bringing your own device (BYOD) is expected by employees, whilst the strongest data security is expected by the board coming to terms with more stringent data regulations like the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).

IT departments need to be flexible and innovative, and picking the best component or platform and being able to do so with complete freedom and flexibility is absolutely necessary if an enterprise is to remain competitive. With this in mind, Sol Distribution works with some of the most innovative vendors in today’s IT marketplace to provide our reseller partners products and services to differentiate their offering from the competition.

Transition Networks

Fibre integration

The challenge for many IT managers is to get their network to do more, for more users, for less. As a result, new technologies may have outpaced existing cabling infrastructures. This could mean an expensive wholesale upgrade of copper cabling to fibre, which for many businesses is impractical.

Another solution is to use Transition Networks solutions to migrate to a fibre-based cabling system at a fraction of the cost. Transition Networks solutions can link new fibre cabling with legacy copper-based network devices – including RJ-45 based switches, routers, and NICs – to greatly reduce the expense of a fibre upgrade while improving bandwidth, distance and security throughout the enterprise.
