Value added distributor Sapply has been appointed Big Switch Networks' new distributor for Asia Pacific following a successful two-year partnership in Singapore.

Sapply was founded in 2009 in Sydney and is now also present in New Zealand and Singapore servicing the APAC region.

“Having successfully collaborated with Sapply in Singapore for the last two years, we are excited to be able to expand this relationship across the region," Big Switch Networks A/NZ managing director Steve Coad said.

“There has been a strong surge in interest in our products and having a strong partner such as Sapply to work with us is important to ensuring we are making the most of the opportunity in this region”.

In Australia, Sapply joins Newgen Systems making Sapply the vendor's second distributor in the country.
