Avaya received this honor for its exemplary success and loyalty, delivering innovative solutions to meet customer needs. Avaya Networking enables faster, more flexible and reliable support for Axis video surveillance deployments, leading to greater security and public safety.  Avaya fabric networking technologies simplify IP video surveillance deployments by eliminating the need for multiple protocols and with very simple end point provisioning that requires only one or two lines of command. This allows video surveillance networks to be deployed faster and easier than ever before – with the ability to add, move and change cameras on the fly.
Prairie Street Brewhouse of Rockford, Ill., is an example of how Avaya’s and Axis Communications’ technologies are delivering high definition video to create safer operations in all areas of the property. Prairie Street’s network runs 70 cameras that deliver high definition video on any Internet-enabled device, which not only drives safety and security throughout the restaurant, but assists in staff monitoring for managing and training purposes.
Avaya’s Fabric Connect technology enables public and private sector organizations to utilize the same IP network for video surveillance as well as traditional voice, video and data requirements.    An Avaya converged network deployment eliminates the cost of implementing and operating separate networks.
“The Avaya Fabric Connect technology delivers industry leading capabilities that enable mission critical always-on video surveillance systems,” said Alan Hase, vice president, Avaya Networking. “Avaya’s Fabric Connect technology and networking products are uniquely suited to support the emerging simplicity, security and resiliency requirements of today’s IP based video surveillance deployments.”
“Axis partners are not only part of the industry’s largest professional network, but are also an extension of our team,” said Larry Newman, senior director of sales, Axis Communications, Inc. “It is an honor to bring together the top companies in our industry at ACCC and recognize those strong relationships and shared sense of leadership in providing innovative security and business solutions. These companies are leading the way to a smarter and safer world for all.”
