Rockleigh, NJ–Control manufacturer Crestron and wireless provider D-Link have created a partnership in which D-Link drivers will be embedded in the firmware of Crestrons UPX2 Universal Presentation Solution and Isys i/O touchpanels to communicate via 802.11g.
According to Crestrons spokesman Jeff Singer, wireless connectivity with Crestron touchpanels is now “plug-n-play” using D-Link hardware. Drivers do not need to be downloaded and hardware does not need to be configured to access the network.
“We always look for partnerships that add value for our dealers,” said Chris Wildfoerster, director business development for Crestron. “We have found that many of our dealers depend on D-Link products for their wireless communications due to their reputation as a high quality manufacturer of robust network devices. This partnership with D-Link demonstrates Crestrons commitment to providing our dealers with outstanding products and support”.
D-Link ships millions of ethernet adapters, hubs and switch ports for the digital home, small office/home office (SOHO), small to medium business (SMB) and enterprise environments.
