SnapperNet fulfils “strong channel demand” with new wireless deal

New Zealand owned and operated firm reveals new distribution agreement and partnership with Maxon Australia, providers of wireless M2M technology across the Asia Pacific region.

New Zealand owned and operated Snapper Network Distributors has announced a new distribution agreement and partnership with Maxon Australia, providers of wireless M2M technology across the Asia Pacific region.

As a result, the data communication products distributor for IT service providers, for the first time in New Zealand, offer Maxon’s range of modem/routers providing diverse connectivity options.

Richard Paul, managing director, SnapperNet, says organisations have been looking for the kind of technology solution that Maxon offers for some time now.

“Maxon is a perfect fit to meet our customers’ demands,” he says. “When looking for access to remote devices out of band or needing a failover or main router, they can use Maxon as their complete solution.

“Our MOBOTIX customers for example can connect to their IP cameras using Maxon across 3G or 4G.”

Maxon Australia entered the market in 1989 as a provider of two way and RF data radio technology - in 2004 they released the world’s first USB modem and now focus on 3G and 4G modem and router technologies for both the corporate and industrial markets.

According to Rick Wong, General Manager at Maxon Australia, there were three key reasons for partnering with SnapperNet.

“SnapperNet has a robust network of local channel partners, strong professional standards and an intrinsic attention to detail, which we believe will provide Maxon with an added advantage in the New Zealand market,” he says.

“New Zealand is an innovative standalone market of early adopters so it’s a very important market for us.

“Our goal is to provide solutions through a reliable and proactive distribution network that is also capable of providing the follow up technical support and training to end users that Maxon is renowned for.

“SnapperNet’s reputable service and focus on partnerships were standout qualities that made them the obvious choice as partner.”

Paul is equally enthusiastic about the new relationship, citing Maxon as “standout in the marketplace” - “We’re excited to be able to offer their range of products in New Zealand to the channel,” he adds.

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.
