The Association of System Integrators and Retailers in Technology (ASIRT) recently announced its new board members after the AGM, held on its Techday in Mumbai. The event, with a two-part agenda, also hosted Nitin Nayak from Digisol as guest speaker. The event began with a detailed presentation from Nayak, National Head, Enterprise Solution Business, Digisol Systems, who shared the various active networking, passive networking and FTTH solutions provided by Digisol.
These solutions included a range of wireless and broadband routers, 3G and switching solutions, specialised fiber and copper cabling solutions as well as integrated IP and CCTV surveillance solutions.
Nayak said, “As an end-to-end networking solutions provider, we work very closely with system integrators. Most of our products, including the ones we presented here, are relevant to the SIs who give Wi-Fi solutions to their clientele. This was our first presentation with ASIRT and it is a perfect audience for us as we get to connect directly to the decision makers and SI entrepreneurs. The response here has been good and we look forward to returning to this platform again.”
