WTG Agent and VAR Partners Capitalize on Resources and Reach of
Leading International ICT Solutions Provider NTT America
NEW YORK - July 28, 2015 - NTT America, the wholly owned U.S. subsidiary of NTT Communications Corporation (NTT Com), the information and communications technology (ICT) solutions business within NTT Group (NYSE: NTT), and WTG, a leading global distributor of connectivity services, today announced they have entered into a strategic agreement to equip WTG agents and VAR partners with ICT solutions that facilitate the rapid growth and global expansion of both disruptive and established Internet-centric businesses, mid-market companies and enterprises from Silicon Valley and across the nation. The augmented partnership between WTG and NTT America commenced in March 2015 and enables WTG agents and VAR partners to sell NTT America’s entire suite of domestic and international ICT services. Since its launch in September 2014, the NTT America Global Solutions Channel Partner Program has been successful in adding respected, connected and supportive partners like WTG to its roster.
Under the new agreement, WTG’s growing network of more than 3,000 agents and VARs will be able to sell a fully integrated global ICT solution set – cloud, IP and data center services – while enjoying the ease of working with one provider. Agents and VARs that sign up through WTG will be able to sell all of NTT America’s global products and services, including cloud computing, disaster recovery as a service (DRaaS), hosting, colocation, Ethernet, private line, MPLS, security and more. Additionally, NTT America will provide WTG agents and VARs with dedicated pre- and post-sales and engineering support, and competitive residual-based compensation.
“We’ve known WTG for a long time. As one of the leading master agents on the West Coast, they have strong connections to some of the most recognized names in technology and new powerhouses coming out of Silicon Valley,” said Kevin Goodman, Director, Channel Strategy & Marketing, NTT America. “WTG focuses on innovative, fast-track brands that rely upon the high-performance, secure and agile global Internet networks NTT America provides to keep pace with changing customer demands and tap into high-growth markets in Europe, Asia and South America. They have an experienced and supportive management team and can connect us with the caliber of partner we’re looking for. We’re thrilled to call WTG a channel partner.”
“This is truly one of the most significant provider relationships we’ve ever had. It’s rare to find a large, global player with known, channel-friendly management,” said Vince Bradley, CEO of WTG. “This in addition to the company’s exceptional set of comprehensive network and cloud services, including an award-winning DRaaS offering and the SDN-based global Enterprise Cloud, were huge draws for us. After only a few months in the NTT America Global Solutions Channel Partner Program, we’ve already closed some really nice deals and we suspect that in leveraging the global reach, financial stability and competitive technology assets of one of the top three telecom companies in the world, we’ll close many more as our partnership evolves.”
