Communications, networking and mobility solutions distributor Nimans plans to help resellers come to terms and get to grips with the impending surge of interest in 4G from businesses, as network partner O2 expands its 4G-capable network.
The mobile operator – of which Nimans is an official JUC wholesale partner – already has live 4G networks in 11 major UK cities, with places such as Edinburgh and Newcastle set to be connected by the end of 2013.
O2 is aiming for its 2G, 3G and 4G network to cover 98% of the UK population up to two years earlier than the 2017 regulatory requirement, according to Nimans head of network services, Mark Curtis-Wood, hence the distie’s new initiative.
“4G is going to be a game changer and it’s important resellers are ready to take advantage, increasingly in the months ahead,” said Curtis-Wood.
To this end Nimans is offering partners a 20-page 4G guidebook with the aim of helping the channel capitalise on new sales potential.
“It’s about making technology work for resellers and their customers, as 4G opens up new ways to access services requiring more capacity such as video streaming and video calls,” said Curtis-Wood.
“Future generations will view 4G as a watershed moment; it drives productivity and efficiency and inspires new ways of working,” he concluded.
