Phybridge, a Canadian based technology company focused on the long reach Ethernet transmission needs of the communications and physical security industry, has entered into an agreement to purchase NVT, the global supplier of IP & PoE transmission products focused on the security market.
With the goal of bringing excellence to the security market, “Phybridge’s innovative solutions will allow NVT to continue its existing dominance of the analogue video transmission market and extend its market penetration into the IP world,” says John Croce, CEO of Phybridge.
Phybridge’s practical innovations address the communications and security market’s needs for long reach PoE and Ethernet over new, or legacy coax and UTP cable. Phybridge switches enable system migration from traditional CCTV and telephone systems, to IP-based technology. Its solutions are robust, cost-effective and easy to install. “Phybridge is bringing its pioneering long reach Ethernet technology into the security market, which will allow NVT’s customers to move to IP with absolute confidence,” says Phybridge Founder and President, Oliver Emmanuel.
Phybridge was the first company to introduce switch technology that delivers Ethernet and PoE over a single pair of wires, with four times the transmission distance of traditional Ethernet. With over 400,000 global users, Phybridge switches are rapidly leading and creating a new standard in Power over Long Reach Ethernet. Today, they are specified and deployed by many leading organizations, including Cisco, Avaya and Mitel.
With headquarters in Toronto, and stocking/sales/support locations in Menlo Park California and Sunbury-on-Thames, Phybridge is ideally placed to supply and support the needs of the global security market.
