Extricom appoints Varlink as new UK distributor

Varlink, the York-based specialist mobile computing and data capture distributor, has added Extricom Enterprise Wireless LAN Systems, manufacturer of 4th generation enterprise wireless LAN solutions based on its Channel Blanket technology, to its product range.

Extricom's award winning Wireless LAN system is a new generation of business-class wireless infrastructure, ranging from a single office to large warehouse based facilities and corporate campuses. The success of Extricoms innovative system is down to continuously providing reliable service where other WLAN systems failed to perform to expectations, offering better more reliable coverage across a wide variety of challenging applications.

Easily integrated into industries such as education, healthcare, manufacturing, logistics, warehousing, retail and public venues, Extricom have been able to provide a successful solution where others have previously failed. Innovative and simple, the solution eliminates the previously used concept of cell planning, and replaces it with a unique "Channel Blanket" topology.

The UltraThin APs are configured to use the same channel, which eliminates the complexities of cell planning and simplifies wireless deployments; this inevitably enhances all aspects of the wireless performance. The coverage, throughput and capacity will be increased to allow all users to move from place to place without interrupting their wireless connection, no matter where they go.

Mike Pullon, Varlink CEO commented: "Extricom products address one of the fastest growing areas of opportunity for the IT channel. Varlink are delighted to have been awarded distributor status by Extricom and we look forward to working with them in helping our customers build their sales of wireless products. The addition of wireless network infra-structure products to our range is, we feel, logical as we distribute several thousand wireless enabled mobile computers annually. Our market research shows that Extricom products have features that are beneficial to end users and provide margins that are interesting to system integrators."

Jason Maclean, Regional Sales Manager for the UK at Extricom added: "The addition of Varlink as a true value add distribution partner here in the UK is paramount to the continuing growth and expansion of Extricom. We chose to work with Varlink as they personify exactly what true value added distribution is all about. Varlink work closely with their partners to ensure that the solutions they offer complement each other, which in today's market is crucial. We are excited and looking forward to working with the Varlink team and realising the growth this new relationship will provide."

As the first enterprise wireless LAN system in the Varlink product portfolio, the introduction of Extricom allows Varlink as a company to branch out into new markets, offering customers a completely new addition to their solution set.
