Pinnacle Distributes Agilent’s Remote Management, Diagnostics Products

7/15/2003 - Agilent Technologies Inc. (NYSE: A) and Pinnacle Data Systems, Inc. (AMEX: PNS) announced a reseller agreement allowing PDSi to distribute Agilent’s Remote Management and Diagnostics (RMD) chips and cards, provide technical support services, and enable easy and fast access of RMD solutions to customers within North America.

The agreement strengthens Agilent’s RMD global partner program, which started with Yosun Industrial Corporation, one of the top five distributors of electronic components in Taiwan. Partners provide support and delivery of Agilent RMD products to original equipment manufacturers (OEMs), original design manufacturers (ODMs), and system integrators (SIs), increasing the flexibility for customers during the startup phases.

“We look forward to working together with the Agilent RMD team to supply their products and to provide solution development and technical support programs that meet the high quality standards Agilent customers have come to expect,” said John Bair, CEO of PDSi.

“The past year has been a learning experience. Agilent has been a reliable partner with high quality standards, friendliness and expertise. Together we have already achieved a lot and hope to have more success in the future,” said K. D. Tseng, CEO of Yosun Industrial Corporation.

“The local support and high-quality services offered by our partners in a specific region enable our RMD customers to release their products faster,” said Siegfried Gross, vice president and general manager of Agilent’s Digital Verification Solutions. “This allows a quicker response time, which, in turn, reduces the length of the integration process.” Additional information on Agilent’s RMD solutions is available at
