A CIRENCESTER business are celebrating 10 years. 

Networking solutions company Gbics was set up in 2013 by directors James Burgess, Giles Harris and Nick Packer as a reselling platform for fibre optic transceivers, cabling and data centre infrastructure products.

The company has grown significantly since its inception and has developed international partnerships with Dell, Intel, Juniper and more recently, Nvidia, one of the world’s leaders in artificial intelligence technology.

They have also recently launched their own direct channel program, called Gbics Connect, which allows IT resellers and service providers to purchase directly from them.

This removes any need for third party distribution companies, as deal registration, pre-sales support and all logistics services are handled in-house.

“We work with some amazing partners who have helped us to develop a comprehensive portfolio of transceiver products.

"We provide high-performance switching solutions for various companies across the world.

"Here's to another 10 years.”
