significant opportunities for its data-centric resellers to capture unified

group. Leveraging Avaya’s strength as a global provider of next-generation
business collaboration and communications solutions, along with SYNNEX’
existing line of complementary vendor solutions, the agreement helps drive a
comprehensive approach to collaborative communications, bringing the power of
premise networking, UC, cloud and mobility into one best-of-breed delivery to
the channel.

This new relationship allows SYNNEX reseller partners to capture and maximize
