ScanSource Makes Wireless Solutions Available Through the Cloud with
Addition of Motorola Solutions WLAN Cloud Services Offering
GREENVILLE, S.C. -- February 18, 2013
ScanSource® POS & Barcode, the leading international value-added distributor
of automatic identification and data capture (AIDC) and point-of-sale (POS)
solutions and services and sales unit of ScanSource, Inc., (NASDAQ: SCSC),
announces the addition of Motorola Solutions WLAN Cloud Services to its
solutions offering. ScanSource POS & Barcode US and Canada is the first
distributor to offer Motorola’s WLAN Cloud Services.
Through this relationship, ScanSource resellers are able to assist their
end-user customers with the management of their WLAN networks from a hosted
controller. Resellers can now enhance their managed services offering and
uncover new opportunities for yearly recurring revenue. By delivering wireless
solutions as a service, resellers can provide alternative options to their
end-user customers that do not want to tie up capital in appliances,
controller or software license purchases and instead prefer an operating
expense model with predictable payments. ScanSource will be providing
Motorola’s WLAN planner, WiNG controller, Wireless Intrusion Prevention and
WLAN Network Assurance cloud service solutions.
“In support of the burgeoning wireless and mobility market, we recently
announced MobilETC, a comprehensive mobility education, training,
certification and partnering program for our reseller partners that are
looking to sell, deploy and support mobile solutions. Motorola’s WLAN Cloud
Services will be a pivotal part of this program,” said Paul Constantine,
president, ScanSource POS & Barcode. “There is tremendous opportunity for
resellers employing a Solutions-as-a-Service delivery model, and we look
forward to helping them grow that business with this new solution offering.”
“Motorola Solutions is excited to expand our relationship with ScanSource and
bring the benefits of WLAN management in the cloud to their North American
partner community and to end-user customers,” said Garry Reichert, director of
wireless converged technologies channels, Motorola Solutions.
