Solution providers in southern Africa can now leverage ZyXEL's networking and communications technologies.

Westcon-Comstor Southern Africa, a value-added technology distributor of category-leading solutions in security, collaboration, networking and the data centre, today announced that ZyXEL Communications, a global leader in broadband networking technology, has chosen Westcon-Comstor as an official preferred distributor in the region.

Solution providers throughout southern Africa will now have immediate access to the full range of networking and communications solutions from ZyXEL, which has developed and delivered networking solutions on broadband access, commercial networking and home connectivity for telcos, business and home users for more than 25 years.

"ZyXEL has been steadily growing in popularity in southern Africa, but we believe that by adding the solution set to our Unified Communications and Collaboration portfolio, we will be able to even further drive brand awareness and knowledge of the company's solutions," states Tiens Lange, director of Westcon-Comstor's Unified Communications and Collaboration Solutions practice.

ZyXEL offers a wide variety of products for home, business and service provider customers, including routers, wireless accessories, networking adaptors, network storage, switches, WiFi access points, controllers, hotspots and gateways, fibre access products, CPEs and a number of security and network management solutions.

This is exactly what we believe ZyXEL can offer them," said Lee Marsden, president Europe at ZyXEL.

"Africa remains an important region for ZyXEL, and with the appointment of Westcon-Comstor in the region, our reseller customers will now be able to leverage the services, support, technical knowledge and logistical supply chain they need in order to successfully deliver on the needs of their customers," Marsden continued. I am looking forward to a fruitful and successful relationship with the Westcon-Comstor team."
