Enables enterprise-wide WLAN services that are secure, scalable & designed for voice and data applications

World-leading structured cabling and infrastructure management specialist Brand-Rex has signed an agreement with Airespace Inc, a leading global supplier of intelligent Wireless LAN (WLAN) systems, which will see Brand-Rex introducing the innovative Airespace Wireless Enterprise Platform into the UK's new-build and upgrade marketplaces.

Airespace offers the most complete platform for the delivery of business critical WLAN services, including a range of WLAN controllers and access points that are managed centrally by an award winning WLAN management system. Airespace uniquely combines dynamic RF management with location services, intrusion protection, and fast roaming for air tight security, seamless mobility, and the effortless support of voice and data applications.

“Data networking is changing direction," commented head of product management at Brand-Rex, Ian Wilkie. "As well-established connectivity and infrastructure management specialists, Brand-Rex needs to take a leading role in introducing new technologies where there is a clear user benefit. Consequently, we believe the agreement with Airespace will make Brand-Rex the first infrastructure manufacturer to offer enterprise wireless capabilities within the networking new-build and upgrade markets. This is certainly an evolutionary step for us, but also a carefully planned one that fits into our established infrastructure business,” he added.

Tom Wilburn, Vice President of Worldwide Sales and Field Operations, Airespace commented, “It has always been an aim of Airespace to focus on the overall infrastructure market and Brand-Rex, with its large network of trained and accredited resellers, delivers an immediate and effective channel to market in the United Kingdom,” he said.

Under the agreement with Airespace, Brand-Rex will sell and support the solutions through its extensive, specialist Value Added Reseller network, which will provide a full range of pre- and post-sales services, including site surveys, network design, deployment, configuration and commissioning.
