Anixter and P2 Wireless Partner to Jointly Promote Wireless Connectivity for Video Surveillance

Hong Kong, March 15, 2018 - Anixter Inc., a leading global distributor of Network & Security Solutions, and P2 Wireless Technologies, a leading wireless technology company announced on March 15 the forming of a close partnership to offer flexible wireless network solutions for video surveillance.

The use of video surveillance has substantially grown in the last few years due to the increased need for public safety. Wiring through fiber has been the primary means for deployment of Video Cameras and are occasionally complemented by point to point and point to multi-point wireless solutions. However, the market is now seeking a cost-effective wireless solution to deploy more cameras in non-wired locations in a shorter timeframe. This is a big challenge when dealing with outdoor infrastructure work, especially in public places where scalability is limited with point-to-point and point to multi-point wireless solutions.

P2 Wireless Smart Virtual Fiber® is a best-in-class solution aimed at the market looking for a premium multi-hop wireless infrastructure suited for large-scale deployment of wirelessly connected video surveillance cameras. The class leading multi-hop throughput bandwidth provides a more flexible and reliable option for both new surveillance sites or extending existing surveillance infrastructure. The device user interface is designed with a minimalist approach so it can be easily configured without extensive training.

“Anixter is a leading global distributor of network and security solutions. We’re very excited about our partnership and we look forward to delivering first-rate wireless solutions to help system integrators deploy their surveillance system in a fast and flexible way with minimal effort” said Winfred Fan, Chief Executive Officer of P2 Wireless.

"We believe this joint technology partnership with P2 Wireless will enable us to offer our customers a robust wireless solution that shortens the deployment time, creating differentiation in the market," said Tim Martin, Senior Vice-President, Asia Pacific.
