PLEASANTON -- Trapeze Networks™, the award winning provider of the wireless LAN (WLAN) Mobility System™, today announced that it has expanded to a larger European headquarters due to the increased demand for its products throughout Europe. Its new facilities include customer and partner training centers, plus new offices in Germany and Sweden. The company also hired a pre-sales support manager for southern Europe.

In EMEA, the Trapeze Mobility System is sold through an authorized channel partner base of over 100 resellers and systems integrators that are trained and annually certified to sell and support the Trapeze Mobility System. In 2005, Trapeze’s EMEA headquarters, located in Hilversum, the Netherlands, trained over 400 channel partners.

With this new larger office and the new training center equipped with state-of-the-art, multi-functional training equipment, Trapeze aims to double the number of technically trained engineers in the EMEA hemisphere. The new office and training facility, also located in Hilversum, will open this month and will allow Trapeze to train 20 engineers concurrently.

Trapeze has opened new offices in Germany and Sweden. The new German office is located in Munich and is being run by Martin Scheller. Joakim Wiling has been hired as the Sales Manager for the Nordics region and will be in charge of all Trapeze business in Denmark, Finland, Norway and Sweden. Olivier Carbonneaux is the new pre-sales support manager for southern EMEA. All three have many years of sales and technical support in the wireless field.

“Our presence in Europe is continuing to expand rapidly,” said Kees van Veenendaal, vice president of sales and managing director for Trapeze’s EMEA headquarters. “We have over 400 customers in EMEA, which is twice the number of customers we had a year ago. Expanding our EMEA headquarters and European presence will provide us with the extra space and resources needed to train and support our customers and partners throughout Europe.”
