Sydney's Also Technology, has picked up exclusive distribution rights to the SONbuddy Wireless Network in a Box (WNIAB) from Malaysian developer, Green Packet.
The software allows users to create a permanent or temporary wireless network for devices running the 802.11G standard.
Also Technology managing director, Ming Ho, said she had initially hesitated when approached by Green Packet. Eventually, she was won over by the vendor's enthusiasm and support promises.
"I was initially quite nervous as this is a new product for the market," Ho said. "Although I could see it would take a lot of hard work, Green Packet showed us the marketing material it had put together and told us about its support centre."
Australian tech support calls would be routed to a Malaysian call centre, freeing Also resellers from providing tech support on the product, Ho said.
The software will retail at $99.90 for a kit containing an 802.11g USB dongle, headset and five license keys.
