Unisys, Ascend Broaden Services Partnership

Unisys Corp. said today that it is expanding a services relationship with networking solutions provider Ascend Communications Inc. Under the expanded pact, Unisys will provide 24-hour-a-day on-site global support for Ascend's WAN and Intelligent networking products in 51 countries.

Unisys will also provide certified network engineers to Ascend customers for installation and testing of Ascend's WAN switching and remote-access products. Unisys has about 9,000 service and support personnel worldwide, says Stephen Martin, VP and general manager of emerging markets at Unisys.

The company signed a similar deal in 1996 with network products vendor Cascade Communications, which Ascend acquired last year, Martin says. He says Unisys has similar global product services relationships with Dell Computer, Bay Networks, and Toshiba.
