Emerson Networks builds on NZ partners in wake of IoT

09 Feb 2016

Emerson Network Power has expanded its New Zealand footprint via a new partnership with Lightning Protection International New Zealand.

The partnership will see LPINZ come on board as Emerson’s latest Silver Network Solutions Partner.

According to Emerson, the deal comes at a time when disruptive technologies such as the Internet of Things and virtualisation are pushing more computing to edge of network devices, prompting organisations to rethink their strategies to ensure competitiveness.

"The rapid pace of technology, coupled with connectivity and mobility, has resulted in a paradigm shift, not only in IT companies but across all industries," explains Mo Kandeel, channel director, Emerson Network Power in Australia and New Zealand.

"The success of future organisations now depends on how they can strategically integrate technology to their competitive advantage, and how they can best manage the explosion of information at the network edge,” Kandeel says.

"With our combined expertise, we look forward to solving our customers' evolving business challenges and providing highly available, efficient and reliable solutions.

“This partnership will enable LPINZ to add value in the IT space, better serving the needs of their commercial and industrial customers." Kandeel adds.

LPINZ specialises in commercial and industrial operations. Working closely with consultants, contractors, building managers and owners, the company has provided power system solutions, including power factor correction, surge and lightning protection to many New Zealand buildings. Ccording to the company, this has resulted in significant energy savings for many high-level electricity consumers throughout the country.

Gordan Luetich, director, LPINZ, says as a Silver Network Solutions provider, LPINZ will carry Emerson Network Power’s full suite of power protection solutions, including power transfer switches and surge protection devices.

“Partnering with Emerson Network Power will allow us to have access to a wide breadth of IT solutions for our customers, enhancing our current solutions portfolio and allowing us to better respond to ever evolving customer challenges,” Luetich says.

“Adding power transfer switches to our portfolio will enable our customers to leverage on critical availability necessary to future businesses' success."
