AVON, OH -- (Marketwire) -- 12/22/11 -- Jenne Inc., a leading value-added distributor of IP telephony, audio and video conferencing, data networking and IT security products, today announced a distribution agreement with Bluesocket, the first and only provider of wireless network solutions with virtual control. Bluesocket, which was recently acquired by networking solutions provider ADTRAN®, Inc., manufactures revolutionary virtual wireless LAN solutions that are redefining the 802.11n Wi-Fi industry.
As a result of the distribution agreement, Jenne resellers are able to deliver powerful virtualized solutions for 802.11n wireless networks such as the ADTRAN Bluesocket vWLAN solution -- which provides impressive security management capabilities while eliminating the need for costly hardware controllers. The Bluesocket vLAN also provides end-users with the option to scale and increase the capacity of their wireless networks with minimal investment: one software instance of the ADTRAN Bluesocket vWLAN can support up to 1,500 access points.
"We are very pleased to introduce Bluesocket's powerful wireless LAN solutions to the reseller channel," commented Craig Rocco, product line manager, data of Jenne Inc. "By integrating Bluesocket's virtualized controllers, multi-site enterprises and campuses are able manage and expand their access points with greater flexibility -- and from one single location. Additionally, they are able to virtually eliminate the investment for physical controllers -- which can cost in excess of $25,000. This represents not only a huge potential savings, but also greater control and security at the network edge since you can set up very specific access criteria."
"We just began carrying Bluesocket and already, everybody wants it," commented John Ciarlone, senior account manager at Hummingbird Networks, a Simi Valley, CA-based solution provider. "We are happy to source Bluesocket through Jenne, which has a committed distribution relationship with Adtran. Our early success with this solution is bound to be in the education sector, where facilities require wireless access points that provide greater security and flexibility of management."

"By working with Jenne, we are able to introduce our best in class virtual wireless LAN solutions to an educated reseller base that is both motivated and knowledgeable in delivering effective and efficient end-user networking solutions."
