Access Networks used its booth at CEDIA Expo 2023 to show off a wide range of networking solutions that meet the needs of both residential and commercial integrators, including configuration services, dealer services and support, and a wide range of Wi-Fi 6 Access Points.
For networking products, the company was showing off its range of Wi-Fi 6 access points, which offer integrators a wide variety of solutions for projects of various sizes. All products in the Access Networks portfolio adhere to current Wi-Fi 6 communications specifications, feature BeamFlex+ multi-directional antenna technology for extended coverage, and support multi-gigabit transmission speed, and connect with anywhere from 256 – 1024 client devices, the company says.
The company’s enterprise-grade Wi-Fi 6 access points intended for indoor applications range from the entry-level A350, the popular medium-coverage A550, the high-range A650, and the ultra-high-coverage A750 for large, bandwidth-intensive projects. Also, newly available to dealers is a Wi-Fi 6 access point optimized for outdoor use, the B350. Access Networks also displayed select enterprise-grade network switches and firewall/routers.
According to Access Networks, the company is also extending its dealer service and support to more of the commercial market, allowing dealers to get preconfigured, enterprise-grade networking products shipped ready to install directly to the project via the company’s Basic Configuration Services.
In addition, dealers can also leverage the company’s partnership with parent company Snap One, allowing them to quickly buy all the components they need to deploy a fully integrated smart home solution, such as networking equipment, access points, support and services, and connected subsystems from other Snap One brands.
The company’s CEDIA Expo 2023 booth featured the Basic Configuration Services program, which essentially offers integrators preconfigured parts of a networking solution to ship to job sites.
Access Networks’ services and support also include designing a heat map for proper placement of access points, configuration of security paraments and VLANs, customized turnkey solutions delivered to the jobsite, and hands-on assistance in the field.
