Qligent Designates MDL Communications its Manufacturer’s Rep and Reseller for Canada

Fri 07, 06 2019

Exclusive partnership agreement gives Qligent greater visibility across Canada due to MDL’s extensive sales and marketing relationships

MELBOURNE, Florida, June 4, 2019Qligent announces a new strategic partnership in Canada with MDL Communications, Inc., 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 award-winning network monitoring and analysis solutions in Canada, substantially boosting the company’s sales presence and brand visibility throughout the country.

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 differentiates itself from competitors by serving the unique needs of Canada’s broadband, IPTV, and OTT service providers, and enjoys strong relationships with leading Canadian service providers and Broadcasters, such as Bell Canada, Cogeco Cable, Rogers Communications, Shaw, Telus, and all Tier 2 & 3 Operators as well.

As part of the MDL family, Qligent joins an impressive portfolio of suppliers that include Harmonic, anyVIDe, Fortress Solutions, Dataminer, Edgeware, Optimal Methods, DekTec, Sencore, Deltacast, Pebble Broadcast, Steren, Blonder-Tongue, and Skyline Communications. For MDL, the addition of Qligent gives the company a powerful offering to transition service providers to an IP-based platform that will help them centralize network monitoring, strengthen compliance, and reduce customer churn, among other benefits.

“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 and founder of MDL Communications, Inc., 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 explained. “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.”
