Designed for A/V & Automation
Homes and offices are smarter than ever. These days even restaurants and shops are brimming with IoT devices. As your peace of mind, productivity, and entertainment now relies on Internet dependent devices and applications, it’s important to have a network that can support dense multimedia traffic, but also optimize it.
Pakedge equipment is designed to power resource-hungry A/V and automation systems. Our devices include high-powered chipsets to allow for blazing fast speeds, even in congested multi-application networks, while our intelligent features help to prioritize latency-sensitive multimedia traffic, simplify installation and management, and optimize overall network performance.
Enterprise Quality Design & Engineering
Pakedge network devices are built for raw power. Founded and managed by engineers and A/V enthusiasts, Pakedge produces best-in-class devices that are built with the latest and greatest components to ensure enterprise class performance and longevity.
Our engineers and software developers are innovators and put great care into our hardware and software. Their dedication is visible as Pakedge equipment stands apart with sophisticated software and firmware, industrial quality housing and components, and the sleek made for A/V finish.
Unified Platform & Harmonizing Experience
Networks are the heart of high-tech, IP-based ecosystems and it’s time for networks to evolve from disparate collections of routers, switches, access points and controllers to unified and integrated network platforms. Network platforms must manage and harmonize devices and applications across entire systems. More than just traffic management, network platforms must sense when something is wrong and also be intelligent enough to fix, configure, optimize, and continuously upgrade themselves. Network platforms and their integrators must be able to provide a level of IT service and functionality fit for the high-tech lives we build.
The Pakedge Connect+ Platform allows Pakedge network devices to exchange information and share feature functionality across the entire network in order to optimize network performance and simplify setup. With BakPak 3.0, these smart devices on the Connect+ system are even better integrated – hyper-connected.
BakPak® Cloud Management
BakPak allows companies to save on labor overhead by simplifying and automating the more tedious maintenance and management processes. Its sophisticated task and management automation transform networking by increasing efficiency, minimizing errors, and increasing profitability for integrators. This is all made possible by BakPak’s refined system intelligence, which sets it apart from other remote management systems and makes Pakedge a favorite among integrators.
BakPak gives integrators end-to-end control from a distance with in-depth monitoring of network devices and control systems. BakPak does this with prioritized alerts, robust permission settings, automated network repair and mapping, easy configuration management, report logging, backup and restore functionality, and TriPlex, a unique troubleshooting system that determines the cause of the problem in case of a network outage or configuration error.
Another particularly useful BakPak feature is Pakedge’s software virtualization which creates digital versions of hardware devices in the network that act like the actual physical units. However, these digital units can be grouped and managed in ways not possible with physical units. For example, some or all of the Pakedge power controllers can be combined with each other power controllers and PoE switches, within the network, or across multiple networks to create new “super-controllers”. These “super-controllers” can be treated as one unit, and be managed and operated as one for simplicity and efficiency.
Often imitated, but never matched – Pakedge is the leading brand for A/V networking equipment. Our company is rich in intellectual property. Our protocols, intelligence features, and intuitive software sets a high standard for the custom installation market. The artificial intelligence that is embedded in our devices enables smart and active networking that optimizes performance across the network to improve your entire high-tech ecosystem.
Pakedge Zones segment various types of traffic, allowing users to assign priorities and prevent high resource applications from slowing down the network.
With TruStream technology, network speeds are given a boost – ensuring peak performance for latency-sensitive applications like VoIP, streaming video, and streaming audio.
Intelligent software algorithms and advanced antenna designs adapt to each site to improve or enhance wireless transmission and reception while mitigating interference.
There’s no need to settle for low range or dead spots – with SectorMaxx, wireless output is boosted to its peak – ensuring the best coverage possible.
Virtualization allows users to group devices across the network or even across multiple networks for grouped firmware updates, scheduling, power control, and more.
Smart Alerts appear via e-mail, SMS, or the BakPak App in case of problems on a monitored network, ensuring quick response to issues.
TriPlex monitors and diagnoses issues on the network even in the case of complete network failure – allowing faster, easier repairs.
FlexPower switches can be powered by PoE+ or AC Power, and provide PoE power to other devices for ultimate installation flexibility.
We are proud to say that our sales, support, and customer service teams are among the best in the industry. Personable and professional, Pakedge employees are helpful, well-informed, and highly motivated. But you don’t have to take our word for it – Listen to our customers who continue to sing praises and support us with their business and votes.
“Of all the companies I’ve worked with, I think Pakedge far and away delivers the best support. And when they say they will help you with your network, they mean that they will stay on the phone for AS LONG AS IT TAKES…”
