10 Gigabit Ethernet networking within service provider and enterprise environments
Santa Barbara, Calif. - September 18, 2006 - Network Hardware Resale (NHR), a leading provider of high-performance new and pre-owned networking equipment, today announced a partnership agreement with Dell Networking Inc., a pioneer in building and securing high-performance networks. Under the terms of the agreement, NHR will add Dell Networking’s family of resilient and scalable Gigabit Ethernet and 10 Gigabit Ethernet switches and routers to its portfolio of highly available, cost-effective networking solutions.
As a member of Dell Networking’s PartnerForce authorized reseller program, NHR will sell Dell Networking’s complete product portfolio including TeraScale E-Series® switches and routers to its growing customer base of Global 1000 companies, data centers and telecommunications service providers. According to Rick Stevens, vice president of marketing for NHR, Dell Networking’s best-in-class Ethernet switches are ideal for customers requiring robust performance and massive scalability. “By forging a strategic partnership with Dell Networking, NHR is well positioned to meet the rising demands for increased bandwidth and higher capacity network solutions,” he says. “We look forward to leveraging NHR’s networking expertise and global footprint to extend the reach of Dell Networking’s powerful products around the world.”

As the leading provider of pre-owned networking equipment, NHR has more than $100 million in equipment inventory as well as substantial sales resources to offer some of the highest market values on excess, end-of-life or depreciated assets.
