Encore Networks announced the signing of a reseller agreement with leading Machine-to-Machine (M2M) integrator, Access Wireless Data Solutions. Access Wireless will sell, engineer, and service Encore's entire BANDIT line of rugged routers with emphasis on the C2C, Encore's low cost, cellular replacement of Plain Old Telephone Services (POTs) copper line based M2M applications.
Available in both commercial and ruggedized, industrial versions, Encore's BANDIT routers are designed for M2M applications in the harshest of network environments. Encore's extensive library of legacy protocols enables Access Wireless to evaluate customer needs and assist in determining the best network solutions while preserving existing legacy gear and reducing capital expenditures.
The C2C is a high-availability, full featured, broadband wireless router designed to support demanding M2M applications. The C2C moves data to a public or private IP cellular infrastructure removing the dependence on copper lines while providing VPN technology with encryption.
"Our objective is not to be just a mega reseller of hardware. Instead, we focus on the relationship we have with our client's and the value-added approach we take to be a strategic business partner rather than just a vendor," stated David Schwarz, President of Access Wireless Data Solutions. "Encore's BANDIT helps us to achieve that goal by offering a family of products that provides a graceful migration to IP bringing together a combination of legacy data protocols, security functions, and management tools that both the enterprise user wants and the service provider demands."
Headquartered in Land O' Lakes, Florida, Access Wireless specializes in commercial and industrial M2M wireless data communications products and services for fixed and mobile solutions, covering many vertical markets including Energy and Utilities, Water and Waste Water, Oil and Gas, Transportation, and Security and Surveillance. Focused entirely on M2M solutions, Access Wireless works with companies who source wireless data communications equipment, accessories and services to enable remote access for connectivity, data collection and the control of assets in the field.
"Access Wireless takes a consultative approach to the understanding of their client's unique requirements and help them to achieve productivity gains and operational efficiencies," said Tom Kittle, Sales Director for Encore Networks. "They feel they have a vested interest in the success of their client's and choose only best-in-class products to help them achieve that success."
