Enterasys Networks will soon be providing secure wired and wireless network infrastructure for Siemens Industry, Inc. The agreement, which authorizes Enterasys to become an authorized major supplier for Siemens, will also allow the company to expand its upon its role as a Siemens Enterprise Communications company within the corporation’s various companies.
The agreement will allow Enterasys to work closely with Siemens’ other major suppliers to simplify the integration of physical security devices on the IP network with strong support of open standards. Perry Levine, senior director of Business Development for Security Products at Siemens, says the security and reliability of the IP network-one of the most common challenges of today’s surveillance and video storage environments-will be strongly improved by the agreement.
“Enterasys is offering a whole new level of network and IT management integration to the physical security infrastructure,” Levine explained. “[the company] demonstrates unique capabilities with their identity-aware intelligent switch technology that automates the secure provisioning of IP surveillance cameras and access control devices at the network edge, while also providing device location services and application visibility at the head-end with their NMS.”
