Anixter International Inc., Skokie, Ill., and Axis Communications, Chelmsford, Mass., have announced a partnership that will make Anixter a distributor of Axis' IP-based security and surveillance equipment. The partnership will increase Anixter's presence in the security market by adding to its existing line of 3,000 product offerings focused on physical and asset-based security.

Axis will leverage Anixter's security expertise, extensive IT customer base, global reach and logistics capabilities to expand its own customer base and provide more innovative, technically advanced networked video systems.

“Every day more and more IT departments are tasked with overseeing physical security as well as IT security,” said Frank LaPlante, vice president of marketing for Anixter. “All surveillance cameras and devices are migrating toward network platforms. Ultimately, networked video systems will converge with voice and data traffic as video technology allows for seamless integration.”
