LANINET: Value-add Distributor Offer Resellers Channel Opportunities across Nordic region

Roseland, NJ. – 12.10. 2010 – Expand Networks www.expand.com, the leader in optimizing WANs for branch office consolidation and virtualization, today announced it has bolstered its channel across the Nordic region with LaniNet, the specialist communications distributor.

Among LaniNet’s customer-base are the largest IT resellers and service providers in the Nordics. Expand Networks represented a clear opportunity to complement its existing product portfolio and support resellers in addressing the strategic IT initiatives of today’s enterprise. Roland Andersson, CEO of LaniNet, explains:
“We acquired a part of the Finnish distributor that already distributed the Expand product on the Finnish market with great success. We had a natural gap in our portfolio for flexible WAN optimization, so Expand was an easy selection. Many of our resellers are designing large distributed solutions including many offices across very different, and even harsh, locations. Expand’s portfolio fits perfectly into these accounts.”

With revenue growth for the past 12 months of 100%, LaniNet is growing at a rapid pace, despite the macro economic conditions. The value-added distributor brings proven technical expertise and an intimate knowledge of local market conditions to the partnership.

Adam Davison, VP of corporate sales and marketing at Expand Networks comments, “This partnership further enhances our presence in our key markets. LaniNet will proactively promote Expand Networks to resellers right across the region and working together, we are committed to harness the channel opportunity for advanced WAN optimization.”
