DOWNERS GROVE, Ill. — Dover Corp. (NYSE: DOV), based here, announces it has completed the acquisition of AvaLAN Wireless Systems for undisclosed terms.
Located in Huntsville, Ala, AvaLAN is a leading provider of wireless and wired Ethernet solutions, along with managed routers, software-as-a-service (SaaS) and Cloud-based services.

AvaLAN focuses on solving data connectivity challenges by securely connecting difficult-to-reach network edge devices, according to the announcement. The company’s solutions solve customers’ data connectivity challenges at the network’s edge for large retail, enterprise and government customers, and supplies secure, managed, PCI-compliant wireless Ethernet solutions.
The company is a pioneer in the development of wireless solutions for the retail fueling industry. Wireless solutions are increasingly preferred by operators due to easier deployment compared to wired solutions, as well as streamlined upgrading and maintenance, the announcement states.
AvaLAN positions DFS to capitalize on long-term digitization trends in the fuel retail industry, as its offerings enable more parts of the retail site to be connected, while managed separately, and increase the connection bandwidth allowing for faster data transmission and enhanced functionality of site devices.
“Through this acquisition, we are excited to add industry-leading network and infrastructure solutions to our portfolio, especially as secure data transfer and communication becomes a centerpiece in our end-to-end portfolio of forecourt solutions,” states DFS President David Crouse.
Crouse estimates that 90% of all gas stations in the U.S. will need to invest in communication and network infrastructure in the near future.
“Offering security software and corresponding hardware adapted for the fuel retail market builds on our record of innovation and product leadership to create a comprehensive suite of forecourt solutions as we further advance our long-term strategy of growing the digitally-enabled value streams in our retail fueling business,” he says.
Dover is a diversified global manufacturer and solutions provider with annual revenue of approximately $7 billion.
