The decision was made in August to fold the Linksys resellers and products into the Cisco channel. Comstor will now offer Linksys gear, including cameras, switches, routers and storage products into its Cisco Small Business Portfolio. Resellers can now buy a range of Linksys kit with no changes to their account or partner status.
Jon Pritchard, managing director of Comstor Europe, said: “We see our Linksys offering as a natural extension of our existing portfolio for the SMB reseller. Our product knowledge, presales support and value add services, such as reseller financing, will help our customers make the most of these powerful and economically attractive solutions.”
Bernadette Wightman, managing director of Cisco's UK and Ireland channel added: “Linksys solutions in voice, security and wireless, and robust switching and routing platforms, will add a significant opportunity to our reseller community. By including them in our small business portfolio, we see substantial market growth through the channel.”
