SnapAV to Acquire Access Networks

SnapAV has announced that it will acquire networking solutions provider Access Networks. The acquisition, which SnapAV says will broaden its networking portfolio with new products and managed services including system design, configuration, monitoring, and support, is expected to close later this month.

“Adding Access Networks to the SnapAV portfolio enables our partners to tackle any size commercial or residential network project,” says Paul Hess, SnapAV Chief Product Officer. “The pandemic has affirmed our belief that a solid network infrastructure is critical in any home or business. Access Networks complements our OvrC-enabled networking solutions including Araknis and Pakedge solutions and strengthens our partners’ ability to handle network deployments of any size for any need.

“More SnapAV partners can now do more complex networking jobs with greater confidence,” Hess continues, “knowing that they are supported by Access Networks. Their industry-leading team of professionals bring comprehensive experience and high-performance hardware solutions to the SnapAV networking product portfolio.”  

With Access Networks’ design and deployment services, partners can deliver rapid proposals to satisfy clients and projects, including high-end residential properties, small businesses, and corporate environments.

The design, hardware configuration, monitoring, and support that is included in the managed services results in a plug-and-play deployment that is “secure, reliable and scalable,” says the company.  

“By joining the SnapAV family, we believe our combined strengths will accelerate our growth and ability to offer broader and more comprehensive service solutions for our partners,” says Access Networks CEO Bryce Nordstrand. “We’re excited to see how, together, Access Networks and SnapAV will equip our partners with more capabilities and confidence to grow their business in a way that they wouldn’t have been able to before.” 

Access Networks President Hagai Feiner adds: “This acquisition signals the start of the next great chapter in the history of Access Networks. SnapAV enables us to scale at an unprecedented rate in our core market while enabling us to develop and fully commercialize new market opportunities.”

SnapAV will soon integrate Access Networks solutions with the full family of existing products, including Control4, OvrC, Wattbox, Araknis, and Pakedge, to offer deployments with more scale, better control, and smart power built into the design.

Access Networks products will be made available through SnapAV’s e-commerce site and network of Local Pro Stores in the coming months. Until then, partners can visit to learn more.
