FirstLight Fiber Grows Partner Program through Relationship with Intelisys

Intelisys’ Sale Partners Now Have Access to FirstLight’s Portfolio of Fiber-Based Services

 FirstLight Fiber, a leading fiber-optic bandwidth infrastructure services provider operating in New York and Northern New England, announced today its new partnership with Intelisys Communications, Inc., the nation’s leading Technology Services Distributor. This new agreement will give Intelisys’ Sales Partners full access to FirstLight’s complete portfolio of data, Internet, data center and voice services, which are backed by strong, locally-based service and support.

Consideration for the Intelisys Supplier Partner portfolio requires that vendor and carrier candidates meet strict criteria. FirstLight successfully met those requirements on several merits, offering competitive pricing, a wide breadth of service offerings and strong support in both pre- and post-sale situations.

“As we continue along an unprecedented growth trajectory, we’re extremely enthusiastic about what FirstLight can offer to our Sales Partners and their customers in the East Region,” said Rick Ribas, Senior Vice President, East Region, for Intelisys. “FirstLight’s expansive fiber optic network presents new and exciting opportunities for our agents, and provides a meaningful alternative for local loops in New York and Northern New England. FirstLight brings a stellar solution set to our Supplier Partner portfolio, and we look forward to a strong partnership.”

FirstLight designed its partner program for agents who want to expand their businesses by marketing FirstLight’s comprehensive solutions to clients. The Company works with master agents, VARs, Systems Integrators, and others.

“We are excited to be joining Intelisys as a Supplier Partner. Our relationship will be a key driver of growth and value, with each company benefiting,” stated Mark Ayotte, Senior Director of Alternate Channels at FirstLight. “With Intelisys’ reach and subagents that span across FirstLight’s footprint, this is an excellent opportunity for the Company to enhance its partner program across its expanding geography. We look forward to joint success with this partnership.”
