Access Networks is a provider of enterprise-grade plug-and-play networking solutions for the automated residence. The two companies deliver a highly visible solution by integrating ihiji’s Invision system into Access Networks’ preconfigured network solutions. This allows the integrator to more easily visualize vital data stored in network devices without needing to directly access the client network or log into each device separately. In addition, AV and automation system event logging can now be correlated with network event logging.
“What we are working on with ihiji is truly exciting and a major step forward in the systems monitoring space,” said Hagai Feiner, CEO of Access Networks. “The ihiji invision systems allow for the capture of valuable data from our solution and presents it to the integrator via the invision web interface. The result is that the integrator has all the information they need at their fingertips.”
As a result of this partnership, all Access Networks systems installed on projects using ihiji invision will arrive preconfigured to work with ihiji’s monitoring service. Integrators can expect reduced installation time and increased efficiency in project management.
“ihiji invision exists to provide integrators a proactive service solution that increases revenues, decreases product failure rates and results in highly satisfied clients,” said Mike Maniscalco, ihiji vice president of technical operations. “It serves as the eyes and ears of the integrated system, providing real-time status of each connected device and enabling prompt and efficient resolution.”
This partnership will continue the integration of ihiji’s invision into Access Networks’ preconfigured networking solutions. New features will include in-depth monitoring of all switches and routers, the ability to turn PoE ports on and off, continuous network health monitoring, fan status, device uptime graphs and bandwidth usage.
“In a rapidly evolving industry such as ours, it is imperative that we align ourselves closely with manufacturers who will both ensure optimal product integration and also provide support for both current and future products,” said Maniscalco. “We have worked closely with Access Networks for the past year with great success, and have already collaborated to produce webinars and associated educational outreach. Hagai Feiner has established a highly skilled and technically adept team who support our collective initiatives very well. We are excited about the opportunities that lie ahead, and feel honored to add Access Networks to the ever-growing list of ihiji invision partners.”
