Linksys confirmed for DISTREE Africa 2015

by Stuart Wilson, Tuesday 2 June 2015

Global networking brand Linksys has confirmed its participation at this month’s DISTREE Africa channel event. Linksys will use its presence at the event to make contact with channel partners across the region. Linksys, which recently became the first company to have sold 100 million routers since its launch, plans to maintain a leadership position by expanding its channel reach within Africa.

The Middle East headquarters of Belkin International in Dubai will oversee the expansion of the Linksys brand in Africa. The operation, led by Amanulla Khan, director of Middle East & Africa (MEA) at Belkin International, represents three brands: Linksys, Belkin and WeMo.

Khan said: Africa is a very strategic market for us and we are very excited to announce that we are on the lookout for partners who can represent our brands in the region. Our brands and products are perfectly aligned to cater to the requirements of end users and SMEs in the region. Our products have maintained leadership positions in MEA and are very well received by users. Our objective is to deliver and achieve the same in Africa as well.”

Linksys claims that the retail channel in Africa has seen significant growth in recent years. More than 100 senior executives from Africa’s leading retailers and e-tailers are confirmed to attend DISTREE Africa 2015, giving the Linksys team a powerful opportunity to extend their retail channel reach across the region. Target retail markets for Linksys include Nigeria, Kenya, Tanzania and Uganda.
