ZyXEL promotion aims to drive reseller WiFi sales

Resellers can get up to an additional 15% off ZyXEL’s unique unified wireless access points / controllers and offer customers increased scalability and investment protection

October 24, 2012

ZyXEL Communications, a leading supplier of networking and communications solutions, is helping its resellers and registered ZyXEL partners drive higher value wireless sales with a promotion that gives them up to 15% more off its NWA3000 N series of unified access point and controller devices.

The company has also announced that it will provide full interoperability between the NWA3000 series and its dedicated NXC wireless network controllers, which provide management capability for up to 240 access points.  Customers will be able to extend the network and fully utilise the unique capability of the NWA3000 N series AP’s  working in AP, controller AP or managed by the NXC controller. This means that any business, school, hospital, hotel or organisation can purchase NWA3000 N  series devices today and quickly and cost-effectively redeploy the devices for use with NXC controllers later. This delivers good scalability and investment protection for organisations looking to ensure they make optimum use of their IT budgets.

With sales of wireless booming right across the market especially dual band/dual radio due to the increase of sales of wifi devices needing connectivity, and in the hospitality and education sectors in particular, ZyXEL is looking to help partners maximise both the volume and value of their sales, says Jon Pearce, Business Development Manager EMEA for ZyXEL Communications.

“As the mobility boom continues, we are seeing really strong uptake of WiFi in all sectors, and we believe there is a really great opportunity for resellers here right now. The additional discount we’re providing on the NWA3000 N series is designed to give resellers an added incentive to take the products to market. It also draws attention to the NWA3000’s capability to act as both an access point and as a wireless controller. This keeps costs down for customers that want to extend their wireless network over a reasonably large space, such as hotel or school campus, with perhaps six or 12 APs deployed across the area.”

The forthcoming interoperability with the NXC series makes the unified devices even more attractive, he adds. “It’s quite common for customers to extend their network and want to upgrade to the more extensive capabilities of the NXC controllers. Being able to redeploy all your NWA3000 N series devices inside the extended WLAN is a significant advantage – both in terms of cost and convenience.”

The additional discounts on the NWA3000 N series are available to all resellers and ZyXEL registered partners in the UK and Ireland until 16 November 2012.  Full interoperability between the NWA3000 N series and NXC wireless controllers will be made available early in 2013.
