Pakedge is an industry-leading manufacturer of high-performance end-to-end networking platforms for residential and commercial AV applications. Pakedge is recognized by industry peers and winner of the prestigious CEPro Brand Leader award for Networking in 2013 and 2014 and specializes in integrating high-performance engineering innovations, operational simplicity, and systems engineering to develop technology that enables customers to unleash the power of their network.
More than 10 years ago Pakedge foresaw that audio and video content was going to be delivered through Internet-based networks. In 2004 Pakedge began with a single in-ceiling wireless access point designed with high performance and architectural aesthetics in mind. Since then our company evolved, offering a full line of high-performance networking solutions designed for premium residential and commercial AV applications.
Today’s networks have become increasingly AV-centric. The convergence of traditional AV devices and IT technologies continues with the popularity of cloud-based multimedia content services and the prevalent usage of mobile devices for content creation and streaming in the home and business. Networks must process bandwidth-intensive, low latency multimedia content and deliver these content streams to multiple network users simultaneously. Data-centric networks are not equipped to process this traffic and general-purpose consumer-grade equipment is insufficient. These average consumer-grade “good enough” devices use low-performance chipsets, have limited features and functionality, and are quickly becoming dinosaurs.
We strive to create smart devices and platforms that simplify installation, management, and ownership.
In modern buildings and homes, automation systems and the Internet of Things have become commonplace. Pakedge engineers are already innovating and building the next generation network platform – one that brings peace of mind to owners and smart, simple installation for integrators, all while featuring the best and brightest innovations. The Pakedge Connect+ Platform, a carefully integrated system of switches, routers, wireless, power management and software technologies, is designed specifically to work with each other to deliver seamless, scalable, and reliable multimedia networking performance. The functionality of the Pakedge Connect+ Platform is extended when unified with the Pakedge BakPak Cloud Management System which enables easy remote monitoring and management of all connected devices – anywhere, any time, and from any device so your network is always secure and always performing at its peak.
Pakedge’s vision, processes, and culture are built around five core tenets:
- Technology designed specifically for AV applications
- Quality in all products
- Relentless focus and loyalty to our resellers
- Premium level technical support based in the USA
- Innovation leadership from experience and listening to customers
