April 19, 2006
Powerful new alliance provides end-to-end IP Physical Security Solution

Las Vegas, NV and Ridgefield Park, NJ, April 5, 2006 -- DVTel Inc., multiple award-winning market leader in the development and delivery of intelligent security solutions over IP networks, today announced that HID has chosen DVTel to join its elite group of OEM partners for the VertX Access Controller and the iCLASS EdgeReaderâ„¢ series.

“Working together, our two companies seek to develop something highly innovative to really advance the IP-based security marketplace,” said Mark Scaparro, HID’s Executive Vice-President, Global Sales Strategy & Business Development and Managing Director-Americas. “DVTel, utilizing the HID VertX open architecture product line, will be providing an end-to-end, open systems IP physical security solution—that’s a powerful combination of technology coming from the collaborative efforts of two market leaders.”

The recently-concluded relationship will be on display at ISC West with HID VertX products in the DVTel booth, as the two companies continue work to fully integrate both the new iCLASS EdgeReader and the complete VertX product line into the DVTel intelligent Security Operations Center (iSOC). This integration clearly demonstrates how companies can migrate to the next generation of access control while effectively leveraging their existing legacy system and investment.

“What we did for IP video, we now propose to do with access control,” said Eli Gorovici, DVTel President and CEO. “Our relationship with HID represents two technology pioneers coming together to bring about a total end-to-end IP solution. The end user is interested in the front and back end of access control functionality, but what happens in between is complicated and messy. Finally DVTel, enabled by HID, has created an intelligent, streamlined access control system that delivers superior value and functionality.”

As technology leaders in IP video and IP access control respectively, DVTel and HID will work closely to further expand the offering and to educate end users and consultants on the DVTel solution, its applications, and its superior benefits.
