Encore Routers Added to GSA Schedule Through Distribution Partnership With SYNNEX

Rick Wingrove Press Release


Chantilly, VA – September 5, 2017
Encore Networks today announced that SYNNEX has added the Encore Networks family of commercial grade and industrial hardened broadband LTE routers to their GSA contract #GS-35F-0143R. This allows federal, state and local governments to purchase Encore products through a streamlined process of pre-negotiated prices reducing costs and saving government procurers time.

Encore will capitalize on all that SYNNEX has to offer to aggressively pursue the many new opportunities of the government market including:

  • Dedicated senior public-sector team
  • Onsite legal expertise experienced in all types of government contracting
  • Eleven distribution centers strategically located nationwide
  • New distribution center in Chantilly, VA, focused on federal government business

“Although Encore has a history of delivering solutions into the federal government, we can now expand our efforts due to the strength of the Synnex GSA contract,” stated Scott Burk, Vice-president of Sales for Eastern North America. “With immediate solutions for infrastructure upgrading of Legacy circuitry and emergency backup and restoration of communication lines, Encore products provide copper line replacement, Land Mobile Radio connectivity and VoIP/PBX trunk backup over high speed LTE networks.”

Encore wireless routers are reliable networking solutions designed for M2M and IoT applications in fixed or portable locations. They are specifically tailored for verticals such as Enterprise Backup/Continuity, Industrial Networking, Transportation and Infrastructure Control and Monitoring, Video Surveillance and Emergency Data and Wi-Fi Hotspot. All routers come with a three-year warranty and provide license free Enterprise Class IP, VPN, Firewall, Routing and IP interworking features and can be monitored and managed with Encore’s enCloud™ Enterprise Management System.

Sample Applications: 
Land Mobile Radio (LMR) for the Federal Government 
Traditional copper lines connecting a base station to a transmitter are either deteriorating or worse are completely down and unserviceable, preventing mission-critical communications to federal agents in the field. Emergency broadcasting and federal aviation systems also use similar radio copper lines. Encore LTE routers provide a traditional copper line interface at both ends of the circuit to legacy radio equipment for direct connections. Analog tones and voice are converted to IP and sent wirelessly over an LTE connection. Re-establishing services in a matter of days versus weeks or even months in some regions.

Video Surveillance 
Video surveillance has become key with the federal government, municipalities and public safety. Using an Encore router, video surveillance is easy to install in both fixed and temporary sites, supporting both powered and non-powered sites, using solar for turn-key video solutions. Mr. Burk continued, “With embedded PoE ports on our routers our electric municipality customers are able to use multiple camera manufacturers and with LTE or hardwire Ethernet WAN connections to simplify their installation, installing them in less than a day.”
