Manhattan® and Intellinet Network Solutions® Enter Into Latin American Distribution Agreement with Ma Labs
Today, Manhattan® (http://www.manhattan-products.com) and Intellinet Network Solutions® (www.intellinet-network.com) announced that they have entered into a Latin American distribution agreement with Ma Labs. Under the agreement, the Miami Branch of Ma Labs will distribute select computer accessories from Manhattan, and a range of home and office networking products from Intellinet, to resellers and retailers in Central America, South America and the Caribbean.
According to Mario Berrios, Director of International Sales – Latin America and Asia, “Over the last several years, Latin America has become one of the fastest growing regions for Manhattan and Intellinet. Partnering with Ma Labs in Latin America will allow resellers in key territories to have easy access to our brands. I’m very excited to welcome Ma Labs to our close-knit network of channel distribution partners, and to be expanding our channel presence in such a vital and vibrant market.”
Recognized as one of the region’s premier computer components distributors, Ma Labs will carry and distribute a broad selection of Manhattan computer peripherals to Latin America, including keyboards, mice and PC speakers. From Intellinet, Ma Labs will carry wireless routers and access points, IP cameras, switches and network patch cables.
One of the main products Ma Labs will be distributing to Latin America for Intellinet is the GuestGate™ – a wireless hotspot gateway, a wireless networking solution perfectly suited for the hospitality industry (hotels, restaurants, fitness centers, bars, etc.) and other small to medium-sized businesses that benefit from offering customers quick, easy access to the Web. More than a wireless access point, the GuestGate lets a business share its Internet connection with guests, while preventing guests from seeing the host network or gaining access to other hosted devices. The GuestGate can be setup with password protection, bandwidth throttling, a customizable welcome page, automatic redirect, “walled garden” functionality, content control, time scheduler and more.

Another flagship product Ma Labs will be carry under the new agreement is the MondoHub, a one-of-a-kind, 28-port USB hub featuring 24 Hi-Speed USB 2.0 ports and four SuperSpeed USB 3.0 ports. Built to deliver the power and performance of multiple hubs in a slim, lightweight design perfect for any home or office, the MondoHub synchronizes and charges MP3 players, smartphones, digital cameras and other mobile accessories, as well as connects peripherals like keyboards, mice, web cameras, flash drives, card readers and more to your Mac or PC.

According to IC Intracom General Manager for the Americas, Randy Steen, “We have a very straightforward strategy when it comes to building our distributor network in Latin America and the Caribbean: focus on quality rather than quantity. We have worked with Ma Labs for almost a year in the US and found them to be an exceptional partner. I am very pleased to be expanding this relationship by working with Ma Labs, and have every confidence that Manhattan and Intellinet will capture even greater market share under this agreement.”
Robbie Chikhani, Vice President of Marketing and Product Management for Ma Labs said the following of the new deal, “Manhattan has proven to be a very solid partner for Ma Labs in 2012. We have enjoyed growing our US distribution market-share with the Intellinet and Manhattan branded product, in a short period of time. We plan on duplicating the success that we’ve had in the US with Intellinet and Manhattan by offering good quality product, competitive prices, excellent service and logistics in order to expand in the Latin American and Caribbean markets. Ma Labs will utilize its Miami HUB to support this business expansion.”
