EtherWAN designs switches for harshest conditions, focuses on building and maintaining relationships
First publishedITS America
Stressing its reputation for manufacturing high-quality, reliable connectivity solutions, EtherWAN has been meeting with customers and partners at ITS America Annual Meeting and Expo, reminding them that its switches are designed with the worst case scenario in mind.
“We’re here staying visible, building and maintaining relationships and keeping in touch with partners,” said Mark Prowten, vice president of sales and marketing for EtherWAN.
According to Prowten, EtherWAN’s switches are hardened for use in harsh environments, ensuring that network connections are always reliable--even in the roughest conditions. Prowten admits that the company’s products are not always the cheapest, but investments in design and manufacturing are necessary to promise the level of availability ITS solutions demand.
The company has been in the ITS industry for nearly 20 years and, according to Prowten, was the first company to network traffic signals throughout a municipality 10 years ago. It’s also strong in the security surveillance marketplace, another industry that requires performance and reliability in potentially harsh environments.
