Access Networks is offering an array of new products to be on display at the CEDIA 2017. These new products and services have been engineered to exceed the expectations of integration professionals serving the luxury residential and connected home markets.
The Access Networks Access Point Enclosure (AP Enclosure) was designed to enable integrators to conceal Wi-Fi range-extending devices in optimized locations throughout the home within ceilings or walls.

ICX switches allow stacking with other than like model switches, and overall margins have been enhanced with channel-competitive retail pricing.
As new additions to their custom solutions, the Access Networks Core2 and Core3 systems are comprised of a router, a wireless controller, a core switch and a monitoring device, creating a complete premium enterprise-grade networking solution when combined with appropriate access points and switches. The Core2 and Core3 systems offer more networking horsepower at a lower cost with enhanced margins for integrators than prior solutions. Core2 is a flat network and Core3 leverages the same hardware as Core2 but comes with as many as six preconfigured VLANs.
The Access Networks Cloud is an ongoing management tool enabling integrators to monitor their client¹s wireless systems from a single view. Utilizing a recurring revenue model and costing less than a ZoneDirector-based system, Access Networks Cloud is intended for integrators that deploy large quantities of smaller wireless systems (two to five access points) and want to deliver superior service and support to their clients.
