Get Plugged In
Posted on 05/09/2013
Nimans is urging resellers to get switched on to the potential of broadband extender plugs that convert power sockets into internet connectivity.
Group Sales and Business Development Director, Richard Carter, says the devices, part of a powerful new partnership with BT, have the potential to overtake sales of DECT telephones.
Nimans has produced a handy guide to outline the benefits of the technology, showcasing the options available, from Wi-Fi hotspots and extender plugs to a dual band base station for higher speeds and greater performance.
Richard says: “The proliferation of smartphones, tablets, smart televisions, set-top boxes, games consoles and social media has further pushed the boundaries, creating an insatiable appetite for Wi-Fi. But what about areas of an office or home where Wi-Fi isn’t available? Catch-up TV and gaming are some of the most influential factors as they require instant, high capacity and reliable bandwidth. Wireless broadband extender plugs are the answer and offer huge revenue potential as almost every home needs them.”
Nimans also stocks an innovative BT Ethernet switch that allows multiple devices to be connected to a broadband router. Ideal for expanding a broadband network it provides connection of up to eight devices at speeds 10 times faster than standard Ethernet.
Richard concluded: “Nimans offers a vast array of data connectivity solutions and we see broadband extender plugs as playing an increasingly prominent role. We’ve teamed-up with BT to ramp-up awareness and sales. The devices have the potential to overtake demand for DECT handsets and it’s an area of the market no reseller should ignore.”
