As it turns out, Airband is NOT leaving the Indirect Channel altogether. My source corrected me that Airband did let two channel managers (East and West), but that these C.M.'s were not making their numbers. Airband did retain the channel manager in Dallas and is interviewing internally to fill a channel manager position. Airband will be putting some more focus on it. Maybe that focus is the result of the extra $3M in funding Airband got last month.
Final quote, "Just thought I would let you know it looks like they may have been shedding some dead weight, but not eliminating the channel all together." Thanks for letting me know.
