Wavelink brings on new vendor to target ANZ education market

24 Feb 15

Wavelink, a value added distributor of enterprise mobility and unified communications solutions, has signed a distribution agreement with Lightspeed Systems for Australia and New Zealand. 

Lightspeed Systems is a vendor focused on the education market, specifically primary and secondary school education (K-12).

Education is one of the key markets for Wavelink across its portfolio, offering everything from Wi-Fi to unified communications and network access. 

Lightspeed Systems' product suite includes web filtering, mobile device management, a learning management system (LMS) and classroom management to help schools use transformative technologies. 

The vendor allows schools to mix and match these products to suit their specific needs, and the products offered can be integrated together to provide ‘additional benefits’ for schools.

Ilan Rubin, Wavelink managing director, says, “The offerings of Lightspeed Systems complement Wavelink’s existing solutions. The agreement means that Wavelink can now offer an even wider range of options to the education sector.

“More than that, Lightspeed Systems sole focus on K-12 means that the solutions it offers to schools are purpose-built to meet the sector’s needs rather than offering generic products to address specific problems.” 

Rubin says, “Wavelink will work closely with the Lightspeed Systems team in Australia. The initial focus is on signing up existing education resellers to provide them with another solution to offer customers.

“The response from Wavelink’s education partners that have been introduced to Lightspeed Systems offerings has been very positive and we’re very excited with this new addition to our product portfolio.”
