GITEX, Dubai, UAE – Oct. 16, 2018 – Kaloom, an emerging leader in the fully automated data center networking software market, today announced a strategic partnership with MBUZZ at the GITEX 2018 Technology Week event in Dubai. Kaloom’s Software Defined Fabric (SDF) product family will be showcased on the tradeshow floor in booth 7A – A15 during the event, October 14 - October 18.

As a part of the agreement, MBUZZ will market, distribute and support Kaloom’s SDF solutions to customers located in the Middle East and Europe where MBUZZ has a strong presence with top enterprise and telco customers in the region. MBUZZ will also collaborate with Kaloom to target potential customers looking for turn-key solutions for their data centers. Working with Kaloom, MBUZZ will be able to offer programmable software-based data center networking solutions to customers who have traditionally been dependent on multi-vendor hardware solutions.
