Atrion Networking Corporation Joins the APC-MGE Gold Certified Partner Program

WARWICK, RI -- (MARKET WIRE) -- April 2, 2007 -- Atrion Networking Corporation, a systems integrator and network services provider, today announced that it recently joined the APC-MGE Gold Certified Partner Program.

Atrion's certified technical professionals are now capable of designing and implementing data-center power, cooling, and management solutions for its customers using APC-MGE's online configuration tools. Atrion's certified professionals now can design APC-MGE InfraStruXure® systems up to 80kW, which now gives the firm the ability to provide its customers with the popular InfraStruXure architecture for data centers.

InfraStruXure is on-demand architecture for physical infrastructure. The InfraStruXure architecture design, which integrates power, cooling, rack, management and services, allows the selection of standardized components to create a data-center solution through modular and mobile configurations. By using standardized components, the architecture easily scales to meet changing needs and future expansion. This award-winning, patent-pending approach provides increased availability, improved adaptability and speed of deployment as well as lower total cost of ownership for IT environments -- from wiring closets to server rooms to data centers.

"The APC-MGE Gold Certification is important to both us and our clients," said Mark Moretti, Atrion's director of sales. "It gives us the expertise we need to thoroughly articulate the benefits of InfraStruXure to our clients and to support them in their design and implementation of the solution."

The APC-MGE Gold Certification also allows Atrion to get involved in discussions with clients about the strategy they have in mind for their data-center build or upgrade.

"InfraStruXure has helped us to further differentiate ourselves and to build higher levels of client satisfaction, technical expertise and profitability," Moretti added.

This specialization is targeted at a full range of clients, from small to medium businesses through enterprise-level markets, and focuses on opportunities that require advanced product knowledge and the ability to deploy solutions over multiple sites and geographies.

"We wish to congratulate Atrion on achieving APC-MGE Gold Certified Partner status," said Peter Poulin, APC-MGE Vice President of Sales for North America. "Atrion Networking Corporation joins an elite group of firms that have proven competency in delivering APC's InfraStruXure solutions quickly and efficiently. It is extremely gratifying to see our channel partners, such as Atrion, embrace APC-MGE and make us an essential part of the customer offerings."
