A Silicon Valley startup has moved into the UK market with Internet access products aimed at the small business market.
Ramp Networks, which is partly funded by hardware giant Compaq, said that it had sold 15,000 units in the US since May last year in a worldwide market which the company estimates at 75 million small companies.
Joe McGrath, product manager at Ramp, said: ?The big vendors like Cisco and 3Com are not geared up to targeting small businesses while we can offer non-technical end users a networking and Internet access solution.?
Ramp has appointed Logitek as its sole distributor in the UK and has opened up a small UK office.
McGrath said that the WebRamp range of products will support both ISDN and modem connections and will be sold by small Vars to customers who are typically non-technical and interested only in small business solutions.
Price points for the family of products start at #300, he said. He said that despite the fact that the potential market was so huge, there were few, if any publications or organisations able to penetrate the market. For that reason, Ramp undertook joint seminars and roadshows with other vendors to show entrepreneurs and businessmen the products they would need to get computerised.
