Code Blue, Vigitron announce strategic partnership
Code Blue Corporation, manufacturer of emergency communication solutions, and Vigitron, Inc., a manufacturer of video transmission solutions for both IP and analog security systems, have announced a strategic partnership to improve the networking of emergency communication systems.
Code Blue and Vigitron previously have teamed up on specific projects, but now all customers can benefit from a stronger relationship. The partnership began when Vigitron created a new Power over Ethernet Splitter that allowed Code Blue Help Points to be connected and powered by a Cat5 Cable or other PoE sourcing equipment to eliminate the cost of running electrical facilities to blue light phones. The PoE splitter is IEEE 802.3 af compliant, which provides power to emergency phones and faceplate or beacon/strobe lights.
From there, Vigitron identified a select set of products that Code Blue could offer as an additional value for customers looking to build a Code Blue network via existing copper or Ethernet infrastructure.
“Finding companies that share our vision for durability and quality is difficult, but we are proud to strengthen our relationship with Vigitron through this partnership,” Code Blue Chief Operating Officer David Cook said.
“We are excited to partner with Code Blue,” Vigitron Vice President of Business Development Neil Heller said. “Our products are uniquely positioned to provide highly reliable power, meeting the various installations required by Code Blue.”
