Genetec has teamed up with Axis Communications to offer enterprise-level access control. The partnership, named Axis Powered by Genetec, combines Genetec access control software with Axis network door controllers in a single,easy-to-deploy, all-in-one offering.
With inventory available globally and offered exclusively through the Genetec Certified network of channel partners, Axis Powered by Genetec combines the Genetec Synergis access control software with the AXIS A1210 and AXIS A1610 network door controllers.
This hardware comes preloaded with the access control software, removing friction associated with traditional software/hardware integrations. In addition, Axis Powered by Genetec devices receives continuous product and firmware improvements, new features, and important cyber security updates from two leading innovators.
“Axis and Genetec share a trusted partnership based on a long history of collaboration and development ingenuity,” stated Michel Chalouhi, Vice President of Global Sales at Genetec Inc. “We are proud to work with Axis as the premier partner in our new Powered by Genetec program. Our shared focus on delivering powerful and creative solutions to meet customer needs has underpinned the development of this sophisticated enterprise-level access control technology delivered in a streamlined, easy-to-acquire-and-deploy offering.”
“Axis and Genetec have a history of collaborative innovation. The new Axis Powered by Genetec solution exemplifies this relationship by truly integrating best-of-breed hardware and software thereby enhancing installation and maintenance while also boosting cybersecurity,” said Fredrik Nilsson, VP, Americas Axis Communications. “Our longstanding and trusted partnership with Genetec means integrators and end users can rely on this solution to deliver continual innovation, quality, and value for a wide range of physical access control needs.”
Axis Powered by Genetec combines hardware and software in one unit, simplifying the installation process, reducing maintenance, and bringing built-in cybersecurity features at both the hardware and software levels. The open platform solution expands the Genetec ecosystem of non-proprietary systems while giving customers more flexibility to scale as their physical security needs evolve.
“Harnessing the power of computing at the edge will become essential in modern system architecture,” said Christian Morin, Vice President of Research and Development at Genetec Inc. “As we reach the limits of Moore’s Law, initiatives that distribute processing into containerised, hybrid edge/core structures will act to increase available computing power for complex applications. Initiatives such as Axis Powered by Genetec are at the forefront of such innovation and mark the beginning of other edge initiatives at Genetec.”
Genetec will introduce select Powered by Genetec offerings across a range of edge devices in the coming quarters.
