FOUNTAIN VALLEY, Calif., July , 2009 – D-Link, the end-to-end computer networking solutions provider for consumer and business, has developed customized solutions to meet the needs of the education sector, including the next-generation networking and connectivity products required by today’s students and staff, plus ongoing service, at no extra cost.
D-Link’s value proposition to educational institutions includes:
· A tailor-made pricing program – to help this sector make the most of scarce resources.
· “Green” products – environmentally friendly manufacturing practices, RoHS compliance, and switches that include D-Link Green™ technology. D-Link Green switches conserve energy and save money without any loss of performance by automatically detecting link status and network cable length, then adjusting power accordingly.
· Products ideally suited to the education environment – D-Link’s line of network products, for instance, provide educators and students with fast, reliable data flow between servers and computers. In Washington, Mo. the St. Frances Borgia High School updated its Wi-Fi network with D-Link® wireless switches and access points to boost coverage and deliver improved wireless reliability, manageability and security.
· Superior service – next business day replacement on defective products, free unlimited 1-800 local technical support, free product training, free network assessments, free firmware upgrades on all business-class products, sales, engineering, technical & RMA support, plus a warehouse facility for immediate delivery. Additionally, all D-Link xStack® managed switches carry a lifetime hardware warranty.
“In today’s economy, the education sector is looking for value in addition to performance, reliability and an unrivalled price/performance ratio,” said Nick Tidd, VP of Sales for D-Link Pan America and VP of Marketing for D-Link North America. “We are committed to helping the IT Departments of this sector deliver this value to students and educators with affordable high performing end-to-end networking tools. We also want to assure them that D-Link stands by its products for the long term, and continues to look for ways to provide additional services.”
“We’re familiar with D-Link, we know they’re reliable, and similar options were just ridiculously overpriced,” said Stefan Adams, Borgia’s IT director. “Why use something else when D-Link will accomplish exactly the same thing for a quarter of the cost? D-Link offers a huge range of products, so it’s a one-stop shop. It just makes sense to go with D-Link”
