Anixter will provide its supply chain management expertise, including stockholding and material management services; deployment enhancement services; vendor rationalisation and management and passive infrastructure provisioning for ducts, sub ducts, chambers and fibre cables. This will help to allow the ISP to focus providing fast, reliable and affordable internet services.

We see this type of approach as a game changer within the ISP industry, allowing us the flexibility to operate nationwide without the logistic and warehousing challenges normally associated with these activities.’
