DrayTek switches, modems and accessories will widen the power and choice available from Habitech’s networking initiative… Habitech, a leading value added distributor of home entertainment and automation products has announced an expansion of its DrayTek range to further bolster the company’s highly successful ProNet platform of networking products and training. Joining Ruckus and an established line of DrayTek routers in the ProNet product pool is a five-strong range of DrayTek Ethernet switches, complemented by a uniquely capable ADSL Ethernet Modem and a range of DrayTek accessories. Habitech VigorSwitch_G2260 Habitech’s new range of DrayTek ‘VigorSwitch’ 1U Ethernet switches includes two 8-port PoE devices, the P-1080 and the P-1090 with extended power PoE+ on four ports. Also included are three 24-port Gigabit switches, the G-1260, the G-2260, which is a fully-managed Layer 2 device, and the P-2261, a fully-managed Layer 2 design with PoE capability. The DrayTek Vigor 120 is a true ADSL Ethernet Modem. Unlike other modems which provide only PPPoE native bridging and then use NAT or multiple public IP addresses to create an onward client connection for a secondary device, the Vigor 120 is a genuine PPPoE to PPPoA bridge, providing the secondary device (firewall, router or PC) with a direct fully manageable IP connection, making setup easy. IPv6 and IPv4 compatible, the Vigor 120 is the ideal partner for DrayTek dual-WAN products. Habitech’s enhanced DrayTek line-up will strengthen its ability to provide the UK CI industry with the means to design and supply powerful, reliable and secure networks. Commenting Habitech MD Jonathan Pengilley said “the potential for new business in the home networking market is huge but when you’re dealing with Gigabit file transfers the dangers of under-specifying are very real. Get the infrastructure right and you’ll open the door to higher-margin sales and have a customer for life. We’re boosting our DrayTek line and our ProNet support initiative to help our integrators avoid the pitfalls and add genuine, enduring value to their business.” For more information, please contact Habitech on 01420 540054 or visit: www.habitech.co.uk
