The two companies have demonstrated shared multimedia and home surveillance applications in a new, collaborating networking system created by UStec at trade shows, including CeBIT and EH Expo.
The Everex Intelliway server fits into the UStec iLAN system cabinet, which features a unique holster -- enabling virtually instantaneous "plug and play" capability in a sleek, compact design that looks equally attractive in a basement, bedroom closet or laundry room.
They allow UStec to be the first structured wiring company to offer the best of both worlds -- a hard-wired broadband network combined with wireless technologies, making all electronics throughout the house accessible by the Everex Portable Web Tablet and other wireless devices," said William Thompson, president of UStec.
"We are extremely excited to be able to partner with an industry leader in structured wiring such as UStec," said John Lin, vice president of sales for Everex.
Systems that combine the two companies' technologies will employ UStec's advanced, high-speed cabling and multimedia outlets, which are made of the highest-quality components and provide the fundamental infrastructure to accommodate all of today's entertainment, electronics, information and security needs.
Based in Victor, N.Y., UStec (www.ustecnet.com) offers homeowners an industry-leading portfolio of products built from the highest-quality components and tested at the factory before shipping.
Thompson says the ceLAN infrastructure is the perfect lead into UStec's new tecStream product, a home automation device that distributes high-definition video throughout the house and offers integrated lighting control and security.
MAKES SENSE: UStec's ceLAN system lets builders install telephone and cable capabilities for well under $1,000.
