Comtrend North America Celebrates 10-Year Anniversary
Comtrend Corporation, a global supplier of advanced networking solutions, is pleased to announce that its North America office in Irvine, California, is celebrating its 10th year of providing innovative and dependable networking solutions. With a focus on providing Customer Premise Equipment (CPE) to telephone companies, Comtrend regularly provides devices to Service Providers in nearly every U.S. state and territory, Canadian province and is quickly expanding throughout Latin America and the Caribbean.
In the competitive industry of networking equipment, Comtrend has been able to stand the test of time. For a decade, Comtrend has evolved its technology and has adapted to service the needs of its customers. In 2002, Comtrend opened its first office in Irvine, California, whereby it inventoried, distributed and supported the global brand of CPE using Asymmetrical Digital Subscriber Line (ADSL) technology. Comtrend became the bellwether for telephone companies offering television service (IPTV) over ADSL, then renewed the position with the successful deployment of high-definition television over ADSL2+ Bonded technology. Leading the communication trend, Comtrend later deployed two new technologies, VDSL2 and VDSL2 Bonded, which allowed even greater bandwidth at short distances. Comtrend’s customers were suddenly able to offer multiple bandwidth-consuming services concurrently, like HD IPTV, VoIP, Video on Demand, and competitive upstream/downstream service plans.
“This is a very exciting time for Comtrend,” said John Castreje, General Manager of Comtrend- Americas. “We have continued to faithfully serve our customers with industry-leading products, service, and value. In the last few years, we have relocated our headquarters to accommodate greater inventory levels- supporting six national distributors, additional engineering and sales staff, and have created a contemporary engineering and video lab to offer world-class support to our customers. We are on track to break all revenue and commensurate profit records in our region’s ten-year history.”
John DiFrenna, VP of Sales and Marketing continues, “Comtrend’s product and channel vision has greatly expanded, positioning us to support service providers deploying not only xDSL technologies, but also fiber, cable, and satellite. Additionally, our portfolio has become sufficiently robust to support end-to-end home networking in most private residences and small business. This 10-year milestone is an important one to our industry. With so many mergers and tepid oversea attempts to reach the North America market, customers have reason to worry about the longevity of their suppliers. Comtrend’s maniacal commitment to our customers and perseverance against rapidly changing and increasingly frenetic competitors, has resulted in our team supporting over 500 buying groups in the last three years alone. With our expansion into cable gateways and home networking products, Comtrend North America is well positioned for continued success through the course of the next decade”
