GLENVIEW, Ill., Sept. 12, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Anixter (NYSE:AXE) today unveiled its new ipAssured: Defining Network Video Migration program that will provide a roadmap for security end-users and integrators looking to migrate their video surveillance networks to a real-time, scalable IP-based solution. The new program establishes an open system, standards-based network video architecture to address current and future video surveillance applications. This provides our customers a framework to make informed decisions and specify the subsystems of an interoperable video surveillance solution.
Anixter anticipates that this program can reduce a customer's total cost of ownership and create greater usability over longer periods of time due to the advantages of an IP-based system. Based on an end-user's unique applications, Anixter can recommend the right solution path for migrating to a video network regardless of where the customer's system is today.
"Network video is a very dynamic and highly fragmented landscape, and there is confusion in the marketplace on how to make good, educated decisions for a cost-effective solution," said Mike Perkins, Vice President of Sales for Security at Anixter. "Anixter's ipAssured: Defining Network Video Migration program helps customers select the right products to facilitate a smooth analog-to-IP network transition."
Through a careful data collection process, Anixter creates a roadmap that travels along three migration paths:
- Refined, which establishes an analog-to-network video migration path that protects legacy analog hardware and infrastructure investments while building a solid foundation for future technologies
- Enhanced, which optimizes your current network video platform for enhanced system performance and functionality
- Advanced, which incorporates network video solutions with advanced feature sets to address specific application challenges that customers face in unique environments
