Infotech Lead India: Edimax Technology, a leading provider of advanced network communication products, has achieved 150 percent year on year growth.
In 2012, 70 percent of the business was generated in the SOHO segment followed by 15 percent in SMB and 10 percent in the surveillance segment.
Edimax routers contributed the major share in the sales growth followed by Wi-Fi adaptors. Edimax has a strong network base of 50+ partners in the North and West India and plans to double its growth in 2013 by aggressively targeting the market of South India.
Edimax’s extenders, routers and Wi-Fi adaptors have proven to be complete solutions for SOHO environments. Edimax designs and launches at least 2 models of each category every quarter. They were the first brand to launch the universal range extender (EW-7438RPn). The influx of various Wi-Fi enabled devices into the market has caused an increasing demand for router in India, which Edimax caters to.
Routers in SOHO segment have grown exponentially as compared to SMB routers. Edimax’s Wi-Fi adaptors have also been in great demand due to the vast range and various categories available.
Some of Edimax’s partners who have contributed to the growth of Edimax in the market are Uttam Traders from Nagpur, Info2000 from Ludhiana, Pleasance technologies from Delhi, DataMax from Jalandhar, Hallmark Systems from Mumbai and Radison computers from Karnal.
Last year Edimax had announced the signing of a cooperation agreement with Telkom Indonesia, Indonesia’s largest telecommunications service provider to jointly launch “Remote Network Surveillance and Security Services” in Indonesia.
Earlier this year Edimax Technology launched the EW-7822UAC, the world’s first USB 3.0 802.11ac wireless adapter. Setting a new global standard for Wi-Fi adapters, the EW-7822UAC is the first and fastest of its kind in the world. The EW-7822UAC represents Edimax’s continued commitment to advancing and accelerating consumer Wi-Fi technology, and is the first step towards an 802.11ac “5G” Wi-Fi future.
