ProLabs' core product focus is on transceivers, direct attach and active optical cables, as well as media converters, all of which are guaranteed to be 100% compatible with over 40 switch vendors and 20 000 systems, backed by a lifetime warranty.
"The additional benefits of ProLabs' products are that they can result in a 99.999% uptime to end-users, along with a substantial cost saving of more than 35%," said Anton Jacobsz, managing director of value-added distributor, Networks Unlimited. "Importantly, deploying these products will not affect any current OEM warranties."
"Since partnering with Networks Unlimited, we've seen an impressive uptake in interest in the product and have had fantastic feedback from resellers regarding ProLabs' compatibility, pricing and warranty," remarks Rob Harrison, Distribution and Channel Manager of EMEA at ProLabs.
