Second Distributor in 30 Days to Sell Out Inventory of IT in a Box

12/8/2003 - EmergeCore Networks, a leader in the development of high-value, low-cost integrated IT solutions for small business and branch offices, announced that Target Distributing is the second distribution partner to sell its initial inventory of the "IT in a Box"® IT-100 all-in-one network appliance, in its first two weeks. The first was MDS.

These rapid sales of the IT-100 signal an increasingly strong market acceptance of the IT-100, Emergecore and Target Distributing representatives said. As orders continue to come in through Target Distributing's online and toll-free catalogs, new inventory of the IT-100 is being routed from Emergecore Networks.

"The value of the 'IT in a Box' to our reseller customers is based on its comprehensive networking features available in a small, portable package at such a low cost," said Tim Rogers, sales manager for Target Distributing. "The IT-100 has obviously proven to be a real advantage the past few weeks as a significant answer to the flexible networking needs of the small and medium-sized business market we serve with EmergeCore Networks."

Dave Brown, CEO of EmergeCore said, "Target Distributing's fast sell-out of their initial inventory demonstrates the increasing interest and value of the IT-100 in the VAR channel. This experience further solidifies our position as a leader for small business and branch offices as we continue to pursue and implement high-value, low-cost integrated IT solutions."

The IT-100 combines 20 gigabytes of storage Express Setup, Multiple Domains, Web Server, FTP Server, File Server, Alarms, Proxy Server, NAT, 4 Port Switch, Website Builder, eCommerce, Upgrade, Router, Domain Users, DNS Server, Email Server, DHCP Server, Statistics, Firewall, Wireless Access Point, Backup/Restore and VPN services in a single $1,395 device.

For small to medium-sized businesses (SMB) or branch offices, the new IT-100 eliminates the need for costly IT support. Even a non-technical person can set up and manage the IT-100 through the CoreVista Web® browser interface. There's no software installation required.

The GUI windows-like interface of the CoreVista Web software is so simple that even a non-technical staff member could set up the network in minutes. The resulting network can support PCs, Macintosh workstations, and Unix machines-basically any device with an Ethernet or wireless access point, including laptops, Tablet PCs and PDAs.
