05 January 2021
SECURITY SYSTEMS consultants and end users who want to use Best-in-Class surveillance products from Axis Communications now have a choice of easy, off-the-shelf options following the signing of a distribution agreement between Ingram Micro and Quanika.
Quanika’s latest portfolio of software solutions, already being used in the NHS and at major distribution and manufacturing sites, is designed to make integration more straightforward. The company’s modular, ready-made approach means that it’s now simple to deploy Axis Communications’ full range of network cameras, video management software, access control and audio products into any system of any size, from stand-alone sites right through to multi-location projects.
Quanika’s technology range – which includes Quanika Compact, Quanika Enterprise and Quanika VisitorPoint – also allows an extensive choice of third party systems to be integrated. This can include everything from intruder alarms, fire safety and building management systems to individual, operations-specific business management databases, systems or devices.
As well as providing new integration routes for security systems integrators, the distribution agreement with Quanika opens up extensive project options for Ingram Micro’s customer base of ICT systems integrators, allowing them to deliver modular off-the-shelf security solutions using Axis Communications’ security products for the first time.
Wide range of applications
Welcoming the deal, Raj Pandya (director of specialty solutions at Ingram Micro) has observed that Quanika’s solutions would help customers with a wide range of applications, from small and medium-scale projects up to enterprise level, providing a single, intuitive security and safety management interface.
“This development is so important because it will unlock new opportunities for ICT integrators and consultants,” stated Pandya. “It allows Ingram Micro’s customers to bring together Best-in-Class video, access and security products from Axis Communications as part of a complete integrated system under the easy, off-the-shelf Quanika umbrella.”
Quanika Compact is a practical and affordable choice for small-to-medium applications in healthcare, retail, manufacturing, logistics and similar sectors, giving users the ability to tie together and flexibly manage multiple sites.
For its part, Quanika Enterprise is designed for larger scale facilities and corporate enterprises, including multi-purpose buildings, hotels, transportation hubs, hospitals and universities, affording organisations complete control and situational awareness across their entire estates globally.
Last, but not least, the Quanika VisitorPoint visitor management solution streamlines and automates reception operations and delivers significant operational efficiency by eliminating manual tasks.
Integrated security solutions
“The ready availability of Quanika solutions from Ingram Micro will be welcome news for all those security professionals who want to be able to use Axis Communications’ hardware as part of their integrated solutions,” explained Quanika’s European sales director Phil Campbell. “This opens up exciting new options for consultants, integrators and their customers.”*For more information on Quanika solutions visit www.quanika.com
