Apexx commences channel development drive

Wanted: dealers and distributors for plug-and-play Internet access system

US Internet hardware developer Apexx Technologies is firming up its channel as the first stage of a programme to expand the UK and European presence of its Linux-based Team Internet Net access solution. Last month Apexx signed up distributor Interquad to join CMS, and the company is close to signing a third, according to sources close to the company. At the same time, it has begun a reseller recruitment programme and will soon launch an authorised reseller scheme, said the company's UK representative, Tony Bassett of the International Business Channel (IBC). To promote Apexx and Team Internet, IBC is running a roadshow later this month, stopping at Newcastle Upon Tyne (23 February, Vermont Hotel), Warrington (24 February, Village Hotel), Birmingham (3 March, National Motor Cycle Museum) and London (4 March, Marriott Langley/Heathrow). Admission is free, and each event commences at 9am, finishing at 1pm. Team Internet is a Internet access device for small to medium-sized businesses. Apexx claims the Linux-based device can be plugged into straight an existing network to provide intranet services and Internet access via an ISP connected by a 56kbps modem, ISDN or Ethernet, and doesn't require the high level of administration and set-up of a Windows NT or Unix-based server. The system contains a rugged firewall to protect the local network, and can be set to monitor and control users' access to specific Net facilities and Web sites. The system is managed through a straightforward intranet Web page. ® To register for the roadshow, call 01344 752700 or email Tim Alder
