Australian broadband specialist Netcomm Wireless says it has established a distribution agreement with Synnex Canada aimed at growing its presence in the North American M2M market.
In a statement, the company said the partnership with Synnex Canada, which distributes IT products in the country, would offer “a new choice for Canada’s M2M and end-to-end mobility value-added resellers”.
A part of IT logistics giant Synnex Corporation (Fremont, CA, USA), Synnex Canada praised the deal as one that would strengthen the Canadian resellers it serves.
"Synnex Canada's distribution agreement with NetComm Wireless [Sydney, Australia] presents M2M mobility solutions that are vital to our mobility value-added resellers' overall competitiveness in multiple verticals across the Canadian market from one source," said Mitchell Martin, the president of Synnex Canada.
Martin noted that NetComm’s products have not been available in the Canadian market until now and will create new hardware opportunities for mobility resellers.
NetComm is not the only international M2M player that has recently signaled its interest in the Canadian market.
Earlier this year, Deutsche Telekom signed a deal with Wavefront, Canada’s Centre of Excellence for Wireless Commercialization and Research, similarly aimed at “developing the M2M market in North America”.
According to Machina Research, the North American M2M market will generate revenues of €140 billion ($182 billion) in 2017, up from just €58 billion in 2013.
