Apple and PC network products company AC&P has been appointed distributor of networking products from Japan-based manufacturer Planet Technology.
According to AC&P sales manager Brent Alexander the Planet range consists of low cost products designed for small office and medium-sized business environments. He says the low prices are achieved not through loss of quality, but by Planet manufacturing 85 per cent of its products rather than OEMing them from others. He said this is the first time the Planet range has been available locally.
The Planet range includes Ethernet adaptors, hubs, and switching hubs, and also a number of Fast Ethernet products. Alexander says that although they carry low prices, the products have many of the features of their better known competitors. "They have all the features and capabilities of a lot of the switches in the market, so there are a couple of products that would fit quite easily into large corporate networks. But the majority of the focus is in small to medium sized businesses."
At present the Planet range of networking products is available to all resellers, but Alexander said an accreditation scheme may be implemented some time later.
