product distri-bution and system integration services company, is aiming to

become Rs 500 crore orga-nization by 2010. "We are growing consistently and

want to scale-up our business by expanding into new geo-graphies, beyond India

as well. Micro Village will also bring in its own products into the market,

besides distributing several leading brands. We will work with system

integrators, apart from being a part of large consortium involved in mammoth

projects. Given our technical strength the Rs 500 crore target by 2010 is

achievable," said M Jayakumar, Director, Micro Village Com-munications Pvt


In the next quarter, the company is launching its own brand of LAN solutions

in the market. Focused on SMB segment, the company will provide end-to-end

solutions in the LAN space. These will be primarily sourced from the US market

through OEMs. "We have not finalized the brand name yet and are look-ing at

several considerations before zeroing in on the name. Micro Village wants to go

global with the brand/products," he pointed out. The company wants to get

into SAARC countries inclu-ding Bangladesh, Sri Lanka, Singapore, Indonesia,

Mala-ysia, Maldives, Pakistan and Mauritius. Micro Village is already supplying

products to some of the overseas markets, and to establish its own brand the

company plans to appoint channel partners across markets.

"We distribute wide range of products and services from several leading

brands such as 3Com, Foundry Networks, Trango Systems, US Robotics, UTStarcom,

Zultis and Quintum, among others. Our core focus is on VoIP, wireless LAN and

broadband, besides security and storage," said Jayakumar. The company is

doing well in telecom, BFSI, government, BPO and call center segments. It is

working with both system integrators and in consortium projects with big names

such as Ericssion, Motorola, L&T and ITI. "We will work with more

system integrators from this year onwards," he added.


Micro Village is present in eight cities-the four metros plus Bangalore,

Hyderabad, Madurai and Cochin. Now, it is planning to enter into a couple of new

locations and Gujarat has made it to the list.
