Bringing advanced networking to the resi market, Calif.-based Access Networks is set to launch several new enterprise-grade networking solutons during CEDIA 2017 in San Diego on Sept. 5-9.

Exhibiting in booth #4029, Access Network will showcase new access point components, complete system solutions and Ruckus network switches. 

“We are confident that the array of new products and services we are showcasing at CEDIA will point the way toward valuable opportunities for integrators,” explains Bryce Nordstrand, CSO, Access Networks. “From the most advanced networking platforms, décor-friendly access point enclosures and enhanced services along with the benefits of recurring revenue opportunities, Access Networks is committed to being a valued solutions provider in the CEDIA community.”

Access Point Enclosure

At the forefront of the company's CEDA exhibit will be the new Access Network Access Point enclosure. 

The enclosure will enable integrators to conceal access points in locations throughout a home within walls or ceilings. Customizable with round or square magnetic cover options, the enclosure is optimized for the Ruckus R310 and R510 access points.  

Ruckus ICX Switches

Adding a greater selection of network switches to its product family, the Encino, Calif. company will begin offering six Ruckus ICX switches.  

The ICX switches features the ability to manage multiple switches from a single IP address. Access Networks stresses the streamlined efficiency of the Layer 2 to Layer 3 transition requires no upgrades in hardware.

Moreover, ICX products allow stacking with other like model switches for improved network device interoperability. 

Core2 and Core3 Systems

Addressing complete system applications, Access Networks will be introducing its Core2 and Core3 systems. These solutions feature a router, a wireless controller, a core switch and a monitoring device to provide integrators with a complete enterprise-grade system that can be combined with access points and switches. 

According to Access Networks, Core2 is a flat network, and Core3 adds as many as six preconfigured VLANs. Both systems utilize the same hardware components. 

Access Network Cloud Tool

Last but not least, providing network management, Access Networks is presenting its Access Network Cloud tool. 

The company's network cloud service delivers a recurring revenue solution to integrators and complements integration businesses that typically install anywhere from two to five access points as part of its network services. 

In addition, Access Network says it will also unveil a surprise product that will enable integrators to compete against lower priced network systems.
