Hosted by Ingram Micro and its North America Physical Security Business Unit, the Convergence Pavilion will feature a selection of technology vendors and solutions-oriented demonstration centres from IT vendors, including those that focus on mobility, networking, security, physical security, storage and services.

“Ingram Micro’s presence at ISC speaks volumes to the cross-over sales opportunities and increased demands we’re seeing around physical security and networking solutions,” said Ronald Carlson, director, Physical Security, Insight, an Ingram Micro channel partner, in a statement. “Today’s IT professionals and CIOs want everything tied into the network for greater manageability and performance. As a leading IT distributor with many specialty businesses, Ingram Micro has a lot to offer.”

The Ingram Micro Convergence Pavilion will feature several of the distributor’s divisions and business units including the Advanced Technology and Advanced Computing Divisions, Data Capture/POS, Networking and Security, Pro AV and Digital Signage, as well as the Ingram Micro Physical security business unit and services division. Representatives from Ingram Micro’s Canadian and U.S. new account teams and financial services departments will also be on hand to assist channel partners interested in becoming Ingram Micro resellers.

“Ingram Micro is a strategic business partner to thousands of channel partners and vendors specializing in security and other solutions and we’re thrilled to have this premier distribution company featured at the 2012 ISC West conference,” said Ed Several, senior vice president and general manager, ISC West.

“Today’s IP-based security solutions bring different vendors into the ecosystem and require collaboration, partner enablement and expertise, which is exactly what the Ingram Micro Convergence Pavilion will demonstrate to attendees throughout the conference,” said Brian Wiser, senior vice president, specialty solutions, North America.

“Over the last two years, we’ve seen increased market demand for truly integrated security infrastructure solutions that incorporate all aspects of IT and physical security solutions and leverage adjacent technologies such as cloud, mobility, Pro AV, digital signage, data capture and networking,” said Wiser. “Ingram Micro’s participation at ISC West offers a great platform to further educate channel partners on how Ingram Micro can enable security integrators and IT resellers to evolve with the changing market and expand the portfolio of solutions they offer their customers.”
