Allied Technology Group has formed an alliance with local security surveillance specialist, Zylotech, to onsell its products.
Allied chairman and managing director, Michael Addison, said the deal was part of ongoing efforts to cement its position as a systems integrator for the Department of Defence, Federal Government and the large corporate market.
Zylotech's security technology would be complementary to its own capabilities and skill set in communication networks, he said.
The new alliance follows the announcement of a merger between Allied and wireless and switch vendor, Longreach Group, earlier this month. The integrator also maintains agreements with Ericsson and Kongsberg.
Zylotech focuses on smart security technologies including IP-based digital video and acoustic surveillance.
CEO and managing director, Bernard McGeorge, said it had originally been approached by Allied. The company also planned to retain existing relationships with other integrators, including Honeywell, PCS, Siemens and Signature Security.
The pair would jointly identify and offer integrated technologies to both customer bases, McGeorge said.
He highlighted customers that were migrating from CCTV-based security surveillance towards IP-based technology as a key market for Allied's IP network deployment skills.
"What Allied do and what we do is complementary," he said. "They are well skilled up and have a very good customer which is growing visibly. It's an exciting opportunity for us to distribute and integrate our products."
