NEW Access Networks-branded switches Powered by Ruckus
Access Networks will also be introducing its own line of Access Networks-branded switches at the booth. These new switches will be powered by Ruckus and build upon the relationship that Access Networks and Ruckus have forged, bringing affordable products to market specifically designed for the custom residential market with the same enterprise-grade standard.
Access Networks Emphasizes Education with Course Offerings and New Booth Design
Network requirements are changing rapidly, and it’s sometimes hard to keep pace. The network core is the heart of the smart home, and knowing how to integrate and manage it effectively increases customer satisfaction and improves profitability for integrators. Access Networks is, therefore, offering valuable training sessions for CEDIA Expo attendees throughout the show.
“AV over IP” (MPT016, MPT017, MPT036), will discuss technologies used in AV over IP deployment and how a properly designed and configured LAN ensures the best client experience. The session will dive deep into multicast traffic and how it differs from ethernet traffic; why enterprise-grade networking hardware is important (especially with Video over IP); basic tips when troubleshooting Video over IP installations; and more.
“What Is Wi-Fi 6?” (MPT018, MPT019, MPT037) will walk CEDIA attendees through the new, and vastly different, sixth-generation standard—Wi-Fi 6 (802.11ax). This session will discuss Wi-Fi 6’s features aimed at improving Wi-Fi efficiency and the potential performance increase over Wi-Fi 5 (802.11ac), especially in dense deployment areas.
Attendees visiting the Access Networks booth are also encouraged to inquire about the Access Networks Certified Expert (ACE) training program, one-day, in-person, regional training sessions developed to give residential integrators the skills for deploying, troubleshooting and supporting networks.
Access Networks has also redesigned its booth for this year’s CEDIA Expo, with a new double-decker design optimized for dealer meetings and education. Upstairs is a relaxed environment for dealer meetings; downstairs is a dedicated education and training space where representatives from Access Networks can engage with attendees to answer questions, offer insights, and share ways integrators can build a robust foundation for their smart-home installations by partnering with Access Networks.
Josh.ai Relies on Access Networks Enterprise-Grade Networking at CEDIA Booth
As the complexity of residential AV systems increases, both integrators and manufacturers understand the need for enterprise-grade networking. That’s why, for its demos at this year’s CEDIA Expo, Josh.ai (booth 4319) has partnered with Access Networks to provide robust, reliable networking to power demanding booth demos.
“Access Networks is dedicated to building and supporting reliable, scalable networks for the CEDIA channel. At Josh.ai, we believe the network is the backbone to any high-functioning home, and Hagai [Feiner] and his team at Access Networks have been a joy to work with,” says Alex Capecelatro, co-founder and CEO of Josh.ai. “We’re looking forward to using Access Networks products in our demonstrations during CEDIA Expo and encourage attendees to get to know both Josh.ai and Access Networks during the show.”
