The hardware that Wavelink distributes is predominantly manufactured in South East Asia, including in mainland China.
In order to ensure full transparency, we would like to share what we know about the impact on our supply chain as it stands today.
Spectralink hardware is manufactured in China. Wavelink is generally in a strong inventory position with Spectralink DECT and Wi-Fi stock. Shipments were received in February after Chinese factories re-opened post the Lunar New Year shutdown. Any current stock shortages on specific items relate more to unexpected sales orders and will be resolved with standard manufacturing lead times.
The bulk of Fortinet hardware is manufactured in Taiwan. To date, we are not aware of any impacts on supply chain.
Sangoma handsets are manufactured in China. Sangoma believe they are in a strong position to cater for demand for the foreseeable future.
Spok pagers are manufactured in China. To date, there have been no indications of negative impacts on the supply chain.
Real-time inventory levels of all hardware items are displayed on our webstore. We also encourage resellers to liaise with the Wavelink sales team on any specific requirements you may have, including for upcoming large opportunities. That way, we can ensure that additional inventory can be ordered on our vendors as required.
This is obviously a very dynamic situation, with daily developments. We will keep partners informed of any major changes to the above advice.
Should you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to discuss these with your channel manager.
