TAIWANESE network equipment manufacturer D-Link International Pte. Ltd. has partnered with local IT distributor Versatech International to broaden its distribution channels and attract more corporate clients in the Philippines.

D-Link, which offers a wide range of networking solutions including Wi-Fi routers, extenders and adapters, DSL modems and routers, and switches, is more known in the country for its home products, which include smart plugs and Internet protocol (IP) cameras.

D-Link President Jacky Chang said they hope to boost its corporate client base in the country, leveraging on the wide network and channels of Versatech.

“A few times more, in dealing with our corporate products… Our corporate products have smaller base than our home products,” Mr. Chang told reporters on Wednesday, when asked about its growth targets for the Philippine business.

“D-Link started launching its corporate products last year. With this cooperation and collaboration, [we can] reach some of our new customers.”

Versatech Executive Vice-President Stephen Yu told reporters: “Our priority really is the enterprise companies in the Philippine marketplace. We’re looking forward to a lot of developments in infrastructure and business growth in the Philippines.” 

Mr. Yu said they are especially looking at retail, apparel, and food businesses, as well as small chains and business process outsourcing (BPO) companies.

Versatech also launched new products to add to its lineup, including the COVR-3902 Covr Wi-Fi System, a wireless networking solution provides seamless coverage for up to 6,000 square feet, and DAP-2610 Wireless AC1300 Wave 2 Dual-Band PoE Access Point, designed for enterprises and SME, offering dual-band WLAN options. — Patrizia Paola C.
