Tech Data has announced a pan-European distribution agreement for the Cisco Meraki Go wireless product range, which provides WiFi access for businesses with fewer than 50 employees.
Jason Boxall, vice president, Vendors and Alliances, Europe, at Tech Data said: “We’re excited about leveraging Tech Data’s extensive reach in the SMB market to drive the growth of the Cisco Meraki solution. This is a tremendous opportunity for existing Meraki partners to extend their presence into the SMB space. It also opens the door for resellers who are focused on serving the needs of smaller businesses to take the Meraki brand to market for the first time.
“Small businesses want WiFi solutions that will deliver good performance and reliability, plus the security and versatility to ensure customers can access and use WiFi safely and efficiently. There is still significant room for growth with WiFi in the SMB market. Meraki is a leading solution in the enterprise space, and with the Meraki Go solution it is ready to also make its impact felt in the SMB sector.”
Key targets for the Meraki Go solutions include independent cafes and bars, smaller hotels or guest houses, retail outlets, and small business offices.
Kevin Rezai, global product sales lead, Meraki Go, Cisco said: “Many organisations rely on Meraki WiFi solutions due to their simplicity and ease of use and for smaller businesses WiFi is becoming just as important as it is in the enterprise. There is vast potential for our SMB partners to deliver the performance and reliability for which Meraki is renowned to their customers, and we will be working with Tech Data to make it as easy as possible for them to deliver the benefits that Meraki Go solutions offer.”
The Meraki Go solutions will be available in Europe through a progressive rollout of the offering across the region.
