The agreement will see Ingram Micro distributing the full range of Huawei’s information technology solutions, including enterprise networking, server, storage, security and a growing portfolio of solutions addressing the Internet of Things (IoT) segment.

“With world-class solutions and deep expertise across the technology spectrum, Huawei is incredibly well positioned to help solve the challenges faced by New Zealand businesses today.”
