Westan has clinched its relationship with modems and networking vendor, Dynalink, becoming the company’s Australian distributor.
Westan marketing director, Phil Jackson, said Westan had maintained a casual relationship with Dynalink over the past seven to eight years.
Under the new contract, signed earlier this month, Westan will distribute Dynalink’s modem products nationally on a permanent basis.
Dynalink, the local subsidiary of Askey Computer Corporation, produces a range of ADSL and GPRS modems, as well as LAN products, and USB-based peripherals. The company also maintains distribution agreements for various states, including Altech Computers, Hallmark, Tecksel and Hitech Distribution.
Jackson said the deal would help grow Dynalink’s presence in the Australia market while also giving Westan the opportunity to expand its networking products business.
“We’ll be working with ISPs and our partners to grow some of these product areas; particularly those related to ADSL and wireless technologies and Centrino,” he said.
The increasing uptake of broadband services in Australia and growing interest in wireless networking had prompted a surge in demand for these products, Jackson said.
