<p>“When selecting our VoIP hardware vendor we reviewed products from numerous suppliers, and conducted extensive research and trials,” said Stephen Harley, Sr. Product Manager, iiNet. “Belkin was the supplier of choice as it met our specific requirements to provide a pre-configured, easy-to-install, combination ADSL2+/VoIP unit that will enhance our customers’ VoIP experience.”</p>
<p>“We are excited to be a part of iiNet’s innovative VoIP offering,” said Mike Bell, Managing Director - Belkin Australia/NZ. “Belkin are number one in networking in the retail space and we see this partnership with iiNet as a great opportunity to broaden our move into the VAR distribution and OEM networking space.”</p>
