AC&P adds products
SYDNEY - Advanced Components + Peri-pherals is distributing for Allied Telesyn International from January 1996. AC&P is a privately-owned Australian company that will distribute the ATI range of products through a national network of resellers. The distribution agreement includes the range of ATI Ethernet networking products and its range of standards-based network management products.
USA - N.E.T. and Cisco Systems announced two agreements in January 1996. The first is the extension of the N.E.T. licence to the full suite of Cisco Internetwork Operating System software. The second authorises N.E.T. to resell Cisco's line of enterprise-level internetworking products. Under the umbrella of the N.E.T. Vista Architecture, Cisco routers become part of N.E.T.'s preferred product portfolio for wide-area network managers concerned with products available for mission-critical applications.
Sunsoft and Computervision split
SYDNEY - As of December 1995, Computer-vision will no longer distribute SunSoft. Gil Thew, MD of SunSoft, said that the termination of the partnership is a natural progression of the relationship between the two companies. "Now the role played by Computervision has changed," said Thew, adding that SunSoft will be working with Computervision in the systems integration marketplace. Ian Smith, Computervision's MD, said that as product distribution is not Computervision's core business, the company can now focus on business information management solutions and systems integration.
SunSoft still has three channel partners, with Mitsui as the major distributor and OpenTec and SMCC as OEM partners.
