SAN JOSE, Calif., Oct. 15, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Ubiquiti Networks, Inc. (Nasdaq:UBNT), today announced a distribution agreement with ECS, a major technology distributor with over 24,500 active channel partners in China, Malaysia and the Philippines.
The agreement represents a strategic move for Ubiquiti's expansion into Asian markets to bring its industry-defining broadband and enterprise solutions to customers by leveraging one of the strongest distributor networks in the region. By expanding their offerings to include Ubiquiti's leading edge platforms, ECS is providing its customers with a compelling choice for fixed-wireless broadband and enterprise technology.
"We regard Ubiquiti as a comprehensive, intuitive and disruptively priced proposition for our broadband and enterprise customers," said Jian Hui Ma, Vice General Manager of ECS. "We're incredibly excited to offer their innovative products to our channel."
