Strategic Partnership: MOBOTIX and Intercoax Enable Cost- Effective IP Video Solutions Over Copper Infrastructures
Intercoax and MOBOTIX have entered into a strategic partnership. This will enable customers of both companies to take advantage of the comprehensive performance of MOBOTIX IP cameras and solutions in combination with the high-performance Intercoax transmission products, even if data transmission takes place via existing copper infrastructures or conventional structured cable topology.
The strategic partnership was confirmed at the MOBOTIX Innovation Summit in Langmeil, Germany at the beginning of April. Prior to this, the two companies had already begun to integrate the respective partner technology and the advantages of Long Range Ethernet into their own products and solutions. Both companies are working on large-scale projects based on the migration from analog to IP over coaxial cables and on new IP camera projects with transmission distances that go far beyond the conventional structured cable topology.
“Many customers are looking for faster and less complex solutions to migrate older copper systems to IP,” says Vincent Matthys, CEO, Intercoax EMEA, adding, “With Intercoax products, existing copper infrastructures can easily be upgraded to IP without the need to install new cabling. This reduces both customer costs and end user disruption to an absolute minimum.”
“Our partner Intercoax is a perfect match as their technology enables us to integrate our products and solutions with customers whose network infrastructures and cable topology are not designed to accommodate these. Intercoax allows us to avoid expensive rewiring and to install a future-proof IP video surveillance system using the existing network infrastructure,” explains Hartmut Sprave, CTO of MOBOTIX AG.
The main gain for the installers of MOBOTIX products and solutions or for system integrators is that they can now offer end users a significantly cheaper solution compared to conventional transmission topologies such as fiber optics and structured cable. Intercoax solutions do not alter the on-site infrastructure and can be deployed much more quickly than other topologies.
“We are very pleased to have formed this strategic collaboration with MOBOTIX, the highly experienced and leading IP camera manufacturer. Our proven Intercoax transmission technology helps installers easily migrate analog systems to IP over existing coax or UTP cable infrastructures. Even when installing wide-range networks, Intercoax solutions represent a much more cost-effective and time-saving solution compared to conventional fiber optic topologies. Moreover, the technology is noninvasive and delivers a cost reduction (TCO) of up to 60%,” emphasizes Vincent Matthys.
