EquIP Signs Distributor Agreement with RC Networks and Installs SDSL in Over 20 UK Business Centres Wednesday 23 May 2001 PDF Print EquIP Technology is supporting the business demand for high-speed internet access by rolling out SDSL capabilities to over 20 UK business centres following a distribution agreement with RC Networks, Inc.ä, a leading provider of in-building broadband access equipment. EquIP Technology is a new channel solutions provider specialising in internet acceleration products. EquIP Technology’s installations exploit the capabilities of the RC Networks RC8000Plus product range to provide two-way, high-speed internet access over existing, in-use conventional telephone wiring, by fitting a single box at the entry point of the telecoms network in the relevant buildings. “The RC8000Plus SDSL solution suits business centres and other MTU (multi-tenant unit) buildings because it is easy to install and doesn’t require rewiring in the building. It’s also easy to manage the rollout of the service to new business units within the premises,” explained Neil Ledger, joint founder at EquIP. “Complete facilities management is more common now as end users want a single point of contact to take responsibility and IT infrastructure is often placed squarely in the domain of the premises manager. There has been a surge in demand for what we call ‘internet acceleration products’ and RC Networks provides the most cost-effective solution available.” This agreement underscores EquIP’s expertise in the MTU market as more business activity is conducted over the internet, including video conferencing, converged voice and data capabilities and virtual private networks. “The previous generation of businesses basically required a PC and a telephone, but today’s businesses are asking what sort of connectivity the building provides,” said Michelle Conyers, vice president of international sales at RC Networks. “Can I get fast internet access? Will I be able to videoconference with my business partners? EquIP Technology has a proven track record of responding to these needs and we’re looking forward to a mutually beneficial partnership with them.” The RC8000Plus product family is a comprehensive range of next-generation DSL access concentrators that enable building owners to deliver value-added services such as internet access, VoDSL, VoIP, video and VPN in one easy-to-install package. It offers advanced features that provide bandwidth flexibility and AnyPair™ technology that delivers in-building DSL access over existing in-use telephone wires. -ends- For further information contact: Donna Burke RC Networks +1 858 450 3436 ext. 1243 firstname.lastname@example.org Neil Ledger equIP Technology +44 (0) 1256 384 500 email@example.com Press Contact: Catherine Eyres/Mary Brain Strategic Alliance International +44 (0) 1494 434434 firstname.lastname@example.org Barrie Desmond/Gemma Thomas Multimedia PRM +44 (0) 207 470 8777 email@example.com About RC Networks RC Networks, based in San Diego, Calif., USA, is a privately held, venture-backed company that develops and markets DSL-driven, in-building broadband access products for the global multi-tenant unit (MTU) market.
