D-Link Launches 'Gloves Are Off' Promotional Campaign

MISSISSAUGA, ON--(Marketwire - October 14, 2009) - D-Link, the end-to-end networking solutions provider for consumers and business, today launched the "Gloves Are Off" promotion for the thousands of its value-added resellers in the U.S. and Canada.

Running now through Dec. 31, 2009, the promotion is designed to show appreciation to new members enrolling in the reseller community that gave D-Link the prestigious honor this year in the CRN Magazine survey where the company was ranked the number one competitor in both Data and Wireless Networking categories. The company is offering a "ring-load" of aggressive instant rebates, spiffs* and a grand prize** -- a trip to Las Vegas to see the Ultimate Fighting Championship® (UFC 108) Jan. 1-3.

Up to $300 Reward Card spiffs are being offered on wireless, storage and surveillance product bundles, and spiffs and instant rebates from $25 to $200 can be earned on the sale of wireless access points (APs) and bridges, and D-Link's wide range of 24 and 48-port managed and 16-port unmanaged switches.

"We are very appreciative of the reseller community for voting us the Number One Contender, and this exciting new 'Gloves Are Off' promotion is our way of rewarding our new and existing channel partners and attracting prospective partners," said Betsy Roddy, director of field marketing for D-Link's North American operations.
