Education boost as Wavelink signs A/NZ Lightspeed Systems distie deal

"The agreement means that Wavelink can now offer an even wider range of options to the education sector."

Wavelink, a value added distributor of enterprise mobility and unified communications solutions, has signed a distribution agreement with Lightspeed Systems for Australia and New Zealand.

Lightspeed Systems is focused on the education market, specifically K-12 with its product suite including web filtering, mobile device management, a learning management system (LMS) and classroom management.

“The offerings of Lightspeed Systems complement Wavelink’s existing solutions," says Ilan Rubin, managing director, Wavelink.

"The agreement means that Wavelink can now offer an even wider range of options to the education sector.

"More than that, Lightspeed Systems sole focus on K-12 means that the solutions it offers to schools are purpose-built to meet the sector’s needs rather than offering generic products to address specific problems.”

Education is one of the key markets for Wavelink across its portfolio, offering everything from Wi-Fi to unified communications and network access.

“Wavelink will work closely with the Lightspeed Systems team in Australia," Rubin adds.

"The initial focus is on signing up existing education resellers to provide them with another solution to offer customers.

"The response from Wavelink’s education partners that have been introduced to Lightspeed Systems offerings has been very positive and we’re very excited with this new addition to our product portfolio."

Educating from the epicentre - Why distributors are the pulse checkers of the channel

Educating from the epicentre - Why distributors are the pulse checkers of the channel

​As the channel changes and industry voices deepen, the need for clarity and insight heightens. Market misconceptions talk of an “under pressure” distribution space, with competitors in that fateful “race for relevance” across New Zealand. Amidst the cliched assumptions however, distribution is once again showing its strength, as a force to be listened to, rather than questioned. Traditionally, the role was born out of a need for vendors and resellers to find one another, acting as a bridge between the testing lab and the marketplace. Yet despite new technologies and business approaches shaking the channel to its very core, distributors remain tied to the epicentre - providing the voice of reason amidst a seismic industry shift. In looking across both sides of the vendor and partner fences, the middle concept of the three-tier chain remains centrally placed to understand the metrics of two differing worlds, as the continual pulse checkers of the local channel. This exclusive Reseller News Roundtable, in association with Dicker Data and rhipe, examined the pivotal role of distribution in understanding the health of the channel, educating from the epicentre as the market transforms at a rapid rate.
