At the CEDIA Expo, NETGEAR, Inc., a global provider of networking products will be launching two new access points: the WAX628 and WAX638E.
Exhibiting in booth #7008 at CEDIA Expo 2022 in Dallas, the well-known networking company says the two new access points are tailored specifically for the residential custom integration market. Sold exclusively through authorized integrators and custom installers, Netgear says these access points are bundled with four years of its NETGEAR Insight and ProSupport services.
NETGEAR explains that high quality wired and wireless networking products form the backbone of a smart home. Building upon an existing portfolio of products designed with residential projects and challenges in mind, NETGEAR developed the the WAX628 and WAX638E to help integrators and installers meet the networking needs of their residential clients. These new access points include white-glove design and ProSupport services, as well as NETGEAR Insight, which the company says is a cloud-based management platform that enables installers to remotely manage their customer’s network from a tablet, smart phone, or laptop.
WAX628 and WAX638E Offer a Range of Benefits to Integrators
Working with NETGEAR, integrators will be able to leverage the company’s more than 25 years of networking experience. NETGEAR notes integrators can get access to network planning, design and post-sales support services provided by a team of Ethernet and WiFi experts.
“With this new, unmatched offering, we’re doubling down on our efforts to empower the custom integration market and set them up for success so they can focus on providing the best service to their clients,” comments Doug Cheung, director of Product Line Management, SMB Wireless at NETGEAR.
