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.

“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.
