Warning: Counterfeit (fake) AD-net equipment in market

Hereby we would like to warn users everywhere in the world, that we had found in several countries counterfeit equipment with our logo and model name which are not produced by us, and are really low quality and not complies at all to our vision of how equipment should be manufactured and supported. We have preliminary noted the source where it could be produced and who tries to sell it, and legal issues and other measures will be taken against those, but we would like our valued partners and end users who did not purchased goods directly from us note this fact and inform us immediately if there’s any doubts that equipment is really made by us. Counterfeited items we had been informed that are in use now are E1 – Ethernet converters, 4E1 fiber multiplexers and 16E1 convergence converter, but there can be more.

 

How you can spot non-genuine AD-net product?

 

– It’s overall outlook, and quality is not perfect, it works unstable.
– Management system does not works very well, some features do not work
– Importing distributing agent is providing very bad support, or no support at all, no help for configuring items Last point usually will be a key point when you can suspect a problem that you have been provided with non-genuine products. It’s a big problem not for you only – but for your network, a lifeblood for your and your customers business can all be at risk, but it’s problem also for us – our products that in many years had earned their name with a stability, quality and outstanding support – and now are getting simply copied by fraudsters.It’s a disappointing fact, but together, we can fight against them.

 

How can you help us fight against them?

 

– Please inform about any doubts you have. This is especially important if you did not purchase product directly from us.
– Provide us pictures and serial numbers of unit so we can check if that was made by us and products are real.
– Along with serial numbers, please provide reseller (importer) name and contact person. Your cooperation on this is very appreciated and valued by us!

Testimonials

Lomoveishiy – Finland

I needed those to connect my PC on the third floor to have internet access in that room, and ISP installed their modem on the first floor only. After dropping fiber patch cables, plugged in all cables into these media converters at both sides, and link came up instantly. Was much easier than I thought!

Raymond – USA

Great experience – units worked straight out of the box – just needed plug in cables and we were done. I also like the possibility to enable jumbo frames, while we do not have a need for this feature at the current moment it’s great to have this option.
