Proline marks nine years as CDW exclusive partner for compatible optics

November 2, 2020 GMT

CHICAGO, Nov. 2, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Proline Options, leading North American provider of optical network solutions, today celebrated its ninth year as CDW’s exclusive partner in offering Pro Certified™ compatible transceivers and high-speed cabling.

Founded more than a decade ago, Proline’s optical connectivity solutions empower network operators with high-performance products at a cost-effective price that meets OEM standards and features. Proline’s revenue has reflected market demand, registering an impressive double digit CAGR for several years in a row.


“We have been working with CDW for a very long time. Aligning strategically with CDW made sense,” said Dennis Kondash, Proline Vice President of Sales. “They are renown for their IT expertise, and understand where our products go, and what they solve.”

“Over the years, CDW has driven transformational upgrades for enterprise, education, healthcare, and government sectors,” said Tom Cahill, CDW Vice President of Product and Partner Management. “As network IT and data centers experience greater data demand pressure, there is a need to evolve with the latest technologies while at the same time maintaining or reducing CapEX and OpEx. Having exclusive access to Proline’s competitive catalog has helped us meet the needs of our customers across a broad vertical spectrum.”

The ninth year also marks the launch of an enhanced and mobile-friendly Proline website. New features include improved UX, direct quoting, test bed information, solutions, and video resources. The website investment validates the compatible optic provider’s commitment to the exclusive partnership, with all product pages driving purchases to CDW.
