ADI debuts IP networking sections at North American locations

Dedicated branch space invites customers to become end-to-end IP solution providers


Melville, N.Y., February 24, 2009 – ADI announced today it is rolling out IP Networking sections at its locations across North America. The dedicated branch space will allow dealers to easily find the necessary products they require to offer complete networked systems and become end-to-end IP solution providers.

Located prominently within the CCTV sections at ADI branches, this dedicated space will house a diverse portfolio of network products including Ethernet switches, PoE switches, media converters, servers, wired and wireless routers, test equipment and more. These products will enhance ADI’s selection of IP cameras and make it simple for dealers to get the required tools to install comprehensive IP systems. Dealers will now have access to necessary IP equipment in one convenient location.

"Having a devoted section for IP Networking products at our ADI branch is very convenient," said ADI customer Aaron McDonald, President of McDonald Audio/Video in Hanover, Ill. "It is great that ADI is offering so many IP solutions, making them even more of a one stop shop for us. Their extensive stock of products helps my business operate more efficiently."

Currently there are IP Networking sections in multiple ADI locations including Orange, Calif., San Leandro, Calif., Phoenix, Ariz., Elk Grove Village, Ill., Houston, Texas, Allston, Mass., Plymouth Meeting, Pa., Richmond, Va., Boynton Beach, Fla., New Orleans, La., Elmsford, N.Y., Cincinnati, Ohio and Toronto, Ontario. This dedicated IP Networking space will be rolled out to all ADI branches in the United States and Canada over the next several weeks.

"As more applications become IP based, it is important for us to provide our dealers with a convenient platform to the latest networking technology," said Ed Constantine, senior product manager for wire, structured cable and home solutions at ADI. "Creating a dedicated space for these networking solutions provides customers with immediate access to products they need to build integrated IP systems."
