BODi rS™... More Bandwidth. More Reliability. More Survivability.

Gaithersburg, MD and Dallas, TX: Patton Electronics ( has selected ABP Technology ( to distribute the new BODi rS™ line of bandwidth-on-demand internet bonding routers, the two companies announced today.

For business-critical communications, BODi rS cost-effectively increases bandwidth, while providing "five 9s" availability and seamless failover for always-on network connectivity.

Announced last August, the BODi product line offers cost-effective, on-demand bandwidth aggregation for fixed and mobile enterprises of all sizes by bonding up to seven 3G/4G/LTE, WiFi/WiMAX or VSAT uplinks.

"ABP Tech is delighted to be selected as Patton's flagship distributor for this exciting new product line," said Robert Messer, President of ABP.

As an experienced, high-profile distributor of enterprise solutions, ABP will offer businesses throughout the Americas and the Caribbean a valuable, new game-changing technology from Patton, while providing high-quality customer support.

“Launching BODi rS with ABP was a no-brainer for us," said Brian Lawlor, BODi rS Product Manager at Patton. "Beyond the opportunity to develop a thriving business relationship, ABP is the ideal partner to bring BODi rS to market."

Given the companies' history of cooperation, the appointment makes a lot of sense. ABP is already a prime distributor for Patton's SmartNode™ VoIP gateways and CopperLink™ Ethernet extenders

Messer continues, "With BODi rS we can offer our broad base of resellers and their business customers a great new enterprise solution which avoids downtime and cost-effectively enhances bandwidth. We view this appointment as a fresh opportunity to bring true value into a developing market.”

Lawlor adds, "We are confident that ABP's knowledge and experience effectively positions them to introduce BODi rS to key target markets throughout the region. As we launch this exciting technology together, we look forward to strengthening our successful partnership with ABP.” 

Starting January 30 through February 1, ABP will showcase BODi rS products at ITEXPO East in Miami, Florida. Meet ABP and Patton together—and see the new BODi—in booth 322.
