Access Networks Transforms Smart Home with New Enterprise-Grade Products, Partners, and Price Points

Los Angeles, CA (August 2018) – Access Networks, the premier enterprise-grade networking solutions provider for the modern smart home, is celebrating a transformational year as it sets its sights on CEDIA 2018. There, Access Networks will showcase its new and proprietary lineup of Access Networks Wireless access points and a wireless controller all powered by Ruckus, new custom Core systems, and will be sharing details of new integrations and enhanced partnerships with major players in the AV and IT industries.

Access Networks expands offering with lower-priced enterprise-grade options

A long time Crestron I2P partner, Access Networks now offers pre-configured Core Systems solutions optimized for Crestron NVX deployments as part of a new integration between the two companies (read more about that here). Through this integration, Access Networks’ Core2 and Core3 custom-programmed networking solutions are now certified to work seamlessly with Crestron’s DM-NVX Series of AV-over-IP encoders/decoders to provide the high bandwidth and low latency today’s video distribution systems need. Access Networks’ Core2 and Core3 Systems are comprised of a router, an Access Networks C120 wireless controller, a core Ruckus ICX switch, and a Helix monitoring device with proactive service.

New, lower-priced options available

Now available, Access Networks Wireless is a range of best-in-class wireless networking products with patented technology designed and manufactured for Access Networks by Ruckus Networks. Consisting of access points and a wireless controller, Access Networks Wireless offers lower price points and more effective support options, as well as the ability for integrators to increase both the performance and profitability of their residential network deployments. For instance, Access Networks Wireless components come with four years of support for no additional charge. The wireless controller includes eight access point licenses and additional licenses are available for purchase one at a time. The list goes on.

A Finalist in the 2018 CEDIA Best New Hardware Product Awards, Access Networks Core2 and Core3 pre-programmed systems provide customization capabilities to meet the needs of any home integration project, large or small. Core2 is a flat (or, layer-2) network core with a single IP scheme for the entire scope of the project. Core3 is a multiple-VLAN (or, layer-3) network with up to six pre-configured VLANs for network segmentation. Core systems include one year of their proactive Live Monitoring service, giving integrators the opportunity to generate recurring monthly revenue and exceed their clients’ expectations with a superior level of proactive customer service.
