EnGenius Technologies is a provider of consumer and business-class switches and long-range wireless networking solutions including routers, media bridges and adapters. Established in 1999, the company delivers network infrastructure solutions to the residential and business channels.
“As one of four prime network antenna manufacturers, EnGenius is delivering advanced, enterprise-grade technology. A prime example is their ECB600 concurrent dual band 2.4 / 5 GHz Wireless-N Indoor Access Point, which we are selling for well under $200. This is a tremendous value,” said Mike Hench, Catalyst AV board member and principal of Electronics Source. “All of the distributors within the Catalyst AV network have a full-assortment of EnGenius products in stock, making it very easy for the integrator to furnish both new networks and refresh older ones with the very best solutions available today.”
”We’re excited to enter into this distribution agreement with Catalyst AV as our growing portfolio of wired and wireless networking solutions are an ideal fit for the growing array of network-connected applications in the home,” said Gabriel Maxwell, director of sales at EnGenius Technologies. “Bandwidth-sensitive applications are being accessed via a growing number of media streaming and mobile devices in the home. This makes it critical for the network infrastructure to deliver fast speeds at long ranges to provide access throughout the home and beyond. EnGenius’ products are designed to deliver both at a very competitive price-point.”
