Oprema becomes a distributor for the highly-acclaimed barox range of network switches
Enhancing the availability of product supply in the UK, barox Kommunikation AG, global technology leader and specialist manufacturer of ‘Switches made for video networks’, has announced that its video transmission products are now available through Oprema.
One of UK’s fastest growing multidiscipline security distributors and a four times ‘Fast Growth 50’ company, Oprema is renowned for supporting security installers and system integrators with a wide range of market leading CCTV, access control, fire and intruder brands.
Taking pride in its sales, technical expertise and market leading logistics, Oprema also offers its customers professional services, such as pre-sales design, pre-configuration and on-site commissioning. “Oprema is delighted to become a distributor for the highly-acclaimed barox range of network switches,” says Tim Duggan, Technical Director at Oprema. “barox switch products offer many sophisticated features that are tailored specifically for network video and security applications. In addition, they offer many features that other manufacturers don’t, with many barox features targeted specifically towards IP cameras - which fits-in perfectly with us.
“Our new partnership will benefit both parties. barox have a new UK distributor promoting their brand and products, while Oprema have a new product range, one that fits in a different space to our existing offering. So Oprema’s customer base now has access to a new range of high-end switching equipment - with the added benefit of the level of service and support they are accustomed to. Moving forward, Oprema will be offering system design, training, and on-site commissioning services for barox, as we strengthen our partnership over the coming months.
Commenting on their new distribution partnership, Rudolf Rohr, barox Co-founder & Managing partner said: “Oprema is a well-known player in the UK CCTV security arena. From my point of view, Oprema is a perfect fit and with the company being a Milestone distributor, barox offers exactly the right switches and a fully featured Milestone plugin.
“Oprema understands the benefits of software and hardware melting together, and IT merging with OT. In other words, it’s more efficient to invest little more into intelligent infrastructure, so that benefits can be reaped with better cyber security, reduced maintenance costs and engineering visits to site.
