Ottawa, Ontario, May 28th, 2003. EION Inc. the industry leader in IP software solutions for wired networks and wireless LAN (Wi-Fi) market is pleased to announce that it has established a regional sales office for Asia Pacific region in Hong Kong.

“EION addresses the shifting trend of its customers’ outsourcing strategy. Traditionally, EION’s customers based in North America and Europe used to outsource the manufacturing operations. However, in today’s environment, the trend is to outsource the end-to-end responsibility from design to manufacturing with increasing accountability to the manufacturing companies,” says Kalai Kalaichelvan, CEO, EION Inc.

He went on to say, “The design decisions have shifted to the hands of the equipment and device manufacturers. It is imperative that we are close to the decision makers of the design.” The expansion of its offices in Asia Pacific region and signing strategic agreements with industry leading resellers will assist EION to address the needs of its customers.
