Access Networks Basic Configuration Services
Access Networks continues to cater to the evolving needs of systems integrators by launching at CEDIA Expo 2022 a new service to streamline the deployment of reliable, stable, enterprise-grade networking systems. Created to help dealers consistently and efficiently deploy small- to medium-size networking systems, Basic Configuration Services utilizes over 15 years of experience and expertise of the Access Networks team to pre-configure parts of a networking solution that’s shipped to their partners or jobsites ready to install.

The initial rollout of Basic Configuration Services will focus on delivering pre-configured networking solutions comprising Access Networks access points, switches, or Sophos firewalls. Dealers receive configuration services and industry-leading support historically provided for more complex projects requiring a Custom Core network; Basic Configuration Services provides a valuable subset of those services to the masses.

Access Networks Partners with Parasol to Leverage Remote Monitoring Service
Home network performance has never been more important and Access Networks evolves its suite of products with the launch of Parasol’s direct-to-customer support now available as a part of its advanced Custom Core networking system. Parasol’s technology, which runs on Snap One’s OvrC platform, enables integrators to offer their customers much-needed 24/7/365 support and service.

Through the new partnership, customers benefit from an exceptional Wi-Fi experience and comprehensive support of their entire connected home, while systems integrators gain deep insights into the network; proactively troubleshooting with up to 90% fewer truck rolls, reducing demands on precious manpower and creating new streams of recurring revenue.

Access Networks Cloud-Based Network Management Solution, ARCC, Networks Fuels Operational Efficiency, Profitability for Systems Integrators
The cloud has singlehandedly transformed the systems integration landscape, making it easier for labor- and time-strapped systems integration firms to provide clients with exceptional service while improving their businesses with operational efficiency and profitability. To help systems integrators capitalize on the remarkable opportunities fueled by a cloud-based remote service management business model, Access Networks offers ARCC (Advanced, Resilient Cloud Controller) as it phases out its C120 and Zone Director on-premise, hardware-based controllers.

ARCC leverages the power of the cloud to accelerate remote managed services of Access Networks’ Custom Core and unmanaged home networks. It delivers all of the same plus additional network management features as the discontinued C120 and ZoneDirector controllers but with the convenience and efficiency of being fully addressable remotely via the cloud. Without the constraints of rolling trucks to customers’ homes to configure, manage and update networks, ARCC empowers dealers with greater business agility, cost reduction, recurring revenue opportunities, accelerated innovation, and customer satisfaction.

Access Networks Emphasizes Education with Course Offerings
