SmartLink Radio Networks said it has created SmartPartner, a regional partner program designed to broaden the reach of its I-Network platform.

Program participants will jointly market, sell and support solutions based on the company's I-Network platform. SmartLink also will provide technical certification training to partners wishing to add platform support and service to their portfolios, the company said.

In addition, SmartLink will add an interoperability lab and collective engineering to provide testing, certification and new product planning as part of the initiative.

For systems integrators, SmartLink said it would offer its I-Network products at “attractive resale discounts,” and provide consultation, RF systems design, deployment and customization services, while participating dealers will receive sales training.
