Access Networks, a provider of enterprise-grade, plug-and-play networking solutions, has expanded its offerings to include the value-added distribution of Ruckus Wireless products.
This new model allows integrators to purchase pre-programmed Ruckus Wireless products at VAR pricing and was soft-launched at CEDIA Expo in 2012 to a select dealer base. After a successful trial period, Access Networks’ value added distribution program is now nationally available to integrators in the CE space.
Access Networks will deliver Ruckus products updated to the latest firmware release and pre-programed with a stock configuration. This allows integrators to deploy a Ruckus Wireless solution in far less time for the same cost. Ruckus products can also be purchased with a subscription to Access Networks’ FlexMaster network management service, which allows the integrator to remotely manage their Ruckus deployments from any internet-connected device.
“After years of working closely with the Ruckus Wireless executive team, implementing and managing the full breadth of the Ruckus product line in the residential space, we are pleased to expand our offering to custom integrators nationwide,” said Hagai Feiner, CEO of Access Networks. “The growth of the networking category speaks to the importance of a high performance wireless solution, which has become a key element to the success of an integration project.”
Since 2003, Access Networks has utilized enterprise-grade networking hardware to provide award winning networking solutions to custom integrators and their clients. In 2007, Access Networks formed a close relationship with Ruckus Wireless in an effort to deliver a more robust and serviceable solution to the CE space. Today, Access Networks’ solutions include a combination of Cisco Systems and Ruckus Wireless networking products that scale from smaller managed wireless solutions to larger solutions with fully managed routing and switching capabilities. Every Access Networks solution arrives at the integrator’s door pre-programmed and ready for plug-and-play deployment.
“I’m continually amazed by the professional approach and sales growth provided by the team at Access Networks,” said Ron Gill, vice president of American Enterprise Sales at Ruckus Wireless. “Access Networks’ focused approach in selling quality and performance has been a win-win for the end-user, Access Networks integration partners, Access Networks, and Ruckus Wireless. We look forward to increased growth in 2013.”
