Integration between Crestron and Access Networks preconfigured solutions deliver high-quality AV over IP
Access Networks, the premier enterprise-grade networking solutions provider for the modern smart home, and a long time Crestron I2P partner, now offers preconfigured solutions optimized for Crestron NVX deployments. Access Networks’ Core2 and Core3 custom-programmed networking solutions are now certified to work with Crestron’s DM-NVX Series of AV over IP encoders/decoders. The standardized configurations ensure deployments are seamless and efficient for dealers integrating Access Networks’ Core Systems with Crestron NVX products.
IP infrastructure is the future of video distribution. Delivering superior image quality with no latency, the new Crestron DM-NVX system is the only secure solution to deliver 4K60, 4:4:4, and HDR video over standard 1gbps Ethernet. Access Networks Core systems provide the high bandwidth and low latency today’s video distribution systems need. Coupled together, DM-NVX and Core are an easy to deploy solution for new installations as well as retrofit projects.
“Crestron always and only partners with the best, and Access Networks certainly fits into that category. This partnership enhances our client’s options in providing a flawless Video solution over IP which in turn provides the most important portion of what Crestron wants to deliver, the best user experience by far” John Clancy, VP Residential.
“As we enter this new era of video distribution, integrators can deploy this next-generation system with confidence. Our partnership with Crestron ensures the homeowner will have the technology experience they demand and expect,” says Access Networks Founder and CEO Hagai Feiner. “We continually collaborate and innovate our network designs based on mutual feedback between the two companies”.
Access Networks’ Core2 is a flat (or, layer-2) network core with a single IP scheme for the entire scope of the project. Core3 is a multiple-VLAN (or, layer-3) network with up to six pre-configured VLANs for network segmentation. Since all Ruckus ICX switches utilized in this system are capable of layer-3 functionality without the need for a hardware change, Access Networks is able to provide true layer-3 configurations more affordably than previous multiple-VLAN solutions.
“Leveraging the stability of our products, we worked to make sure the new Core system configurations, when paired with the Crestron DM-NVX products, meet the high standards the industry has come to expect from both brands,” says Access Networks Technical Trainer Nathan Holmes. “By developing internal configuration standards, we know that when an integrator is deploying a network using Crestron DM-NVX, regardless of the integrator’s level of networking expertise, our solution will ensure that the dedicated resources each device requires are available.”
As a Crestron I2P partner, Access Networks’ Core2 and Core3 products will work in lockstep with Crestron products to provide consistency in an increasingly complicated landscape of IP-based products that “ride” on the home network. To make it even easier, Access Networks Core systems also includes four years of support from its industry leading team of certified support engineers, providing a future-ready solution as network requirements change over time.
