“Adding Access Networks to the SnapAV portfolio enables our Partners to tackle any size commercial or residential network project,” said G Paul Hess, SnapAV chief product officer. “The pandemic has affirmed our belief that a solid network infrastructure is critical in any home or business.

“More SnapAV partners can now do more complex networking jobs with greater confidence, 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,” Hess added.  

“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,” said Bryce Nordstrand, CEO, Access Networks. “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.”

"This acquisition signals the start of the next great chapter in the history of Access Networks," concluded Hagai Feiner, president, Access Networks.
