RBR Networks has changed its name to Comstor and laid out its Web plans for the next twelve months. The UK distributor today switched its branding to cash in on the Comstor name – the existing US Cisco distribution business of parent company Datatec. The move is the first part of Datatec's plan to bring all its Cisco distributors under the Comstor umbrella. The Cirencester-based outfit, bought by South African Datatec in September 1998, said it planned to keep its Cisco-only distribution policy. The company also outlined its e-commerce offering for the channel. From today, resellers will be able to use Cisco's configuration facility, Network Product Market for Resellers (NPMR), as part of the distributor's Web site (www.comstor.co.uk). Cisco wants 15 per cent of Comstor's UK sales to be online within the year. Comstor claims over 70 per cent of the Cisco distribution market in the UK, with 800 resellers. ® Related stories: RBR wins Cisco academic channel rights RBR Networks bouncing following increase in turnover Datatec buys US Cisco disti How much is a Cisco distribution franchise worth?
