New Switches from SnapAV’s Araknis Networks®

Araknis Networks switches are now enabled for OvrC™, a cloud-based app that streamlines installation, organizes customer data, and helps integrators with remote troubleshooting.

Charlotte, NC - June 3, 2015 - Araknis Networks® has announced that their 300-series switches line is enabled for the cloud-based OvrC app. OvrC [pronounced oversee] is an innovative cloud app designed to streamline the integrator's life. Araknis Networks and OvrC are brand divisions of Charlotte-based SnapAV, a designer, manufacturer and exclusive source of more than 1,800 electronic home solutions for residential and commercial channels.

"OvrC represents the next step forward for our industry," says Ayham Ereksousi, Category Manager for Araknis Networks. "Networking has become an enormous part of the modern homeowner's life. The ability to manage and troubleshoot devices through the cloud allows integrators more flexibility by organizing their customer data and eliminating unnecessary service calls." Araknis 300-series switches support 1Gbps on all ports simultaneously to provide powerful, reliable connectivity for conventional network devices - like PCs, Apple TVs, and other media products. Their user-friendly web interface is simple to navigate, lets installers name individual ports for fast troubleshooting, allows customers to set up VLANs to isolate chatty devices, and enhances network performance from end to end.

OvrC enablement for these switches allows the integrator to power cycle individual PoE ports, change port speed and names, access the local GUI, get notifications, manage customers and devices, update firmware, and much more. "This is only part of what we plan to accomplish," added Ereksousi. "We're really excited about what's to come."
