Allied Telesis Launches Global Education, Certification Program

As enterprises work to transition their physical security strategies from analog to digital, Allied Telesis Inc., a global provider of secure IP/Ethernet switching solutions recently announced a new education and certification program in Internet Protocol technology for professionals engaged in the design, installation, sales and support of security and surveillance systems.

By focusing on IP-based fire safety, access control and surveillance, Allied Telesis is well-positioned to meet the needs of the rapidly changing security environment.

The company has a deep history in delivering high-quality, IP-based video services over Ethernet networks with more than 500,000 end-points already deployed. As a result, Allied Telesis has a unique opportunity to advance the market by providing its expertise in Triple Play (voice, data, video) technology and engineering to professionals across the globe.

“The world market for network video surveillance equipment is growing at more than 25 percent year-over-year,” said Gary Wong, senior analyst, IMS Research. “Support and end-user education are two key factors attributed to the accelerating adoption of network video surveillance equipment.”

Allied Telesis has developed an extensive set of certification courses and exams to help professionals increase their knowledge of IP networking.

Coursework covers all aspects of hardware and software deployments, from basic rack-and-stack to in-depth configuration, design, troubleshooting and support. IP-based fire safety and security systems tracks include surveillance, access control, sensor integration and remote monitoring and support.

“As the market for IP surveillance and security services and products expands, our goal is to actively prepare our customers and prospects to strategically implement new technologies to fit their needs,” said Vince Ricco, Allied Telesis. “By aligning our services resources we are able to offer our customers quick and easy access to a deep pool of talent in mission-critical networking applications. We connect the right people to the right technology wherever and whenever it’s needed to help accelerate time-to-market for our customers.”

As part of the Allied Telesis certification program, the Company will offer solution training courses focusing on the IP surveillance market which will begin in May. The initial course is titled “Fundamental Solution Training: Video Surveillance.”
