IP intercom acquisition

Axis Communications, the network CCTV product company, has acquired 2N, the IP intercom product firm. Axis says that their acquisition addresses the growing IP video intercom market.

2N also operates in other areas, such as IP audio and IP lift intercom. The company has sales channels through electricians and telecom installers as well as lift manufacturers, which can complement Axis’ sales channels, the company says.

Peter Lindström, Vice President New Business at Axis Communications, says: “The acquisition supports our ambition to contribute to a smarter and safer world. There is an increased customer demand for integrated solutions with open standards that deliver enhanced security. Together with 2N we can meet that demand.”

The 2N brand will remain, and the company will operate as a subsidiary within the Axis group. The joint operations will concern knowledge sharing and assisting each other in R&D and market access. A joint task is to accelerate the convergence from analogue systems towards IP intercom, the firms add.

Peter Lindström says: “We plan for development and growth for Axis as well as for 2N. The market is growing, and by acquiring 2N we can continue to drive the change in the market.”
