American Fibertek Joins Sony's Security Solution Affiliate Program to Deliver Advanced Networked Solutions


Las Vegas, NV (March 28, 2007) - American Fibertek, Inc. (AFI) has announced its participation and enrollment in the Sony IPELA® Security Solution Affiliate program (SSA) program, an initiative designed to educate security manufacturers about integrating Sony's IP-based cameras into their core systems products and technologies. AFI's participation in the program will focus on the company's release of its innovative Video Network Enterprise Solution (V'nes).

"Sony is recognized as a leading manufacturer of IP surveillance solutions with their award-winning IPELA product line," said Jack Fernandes, President and CEO of AFI. "Our association with them, through their SSA program, will help to provide customers with a highly effective networking solution that combines Sony's state-of-the art IP and analog cameras with AFI's innovative network transmission system."

AFI's V'nes is the first and only integrated and standardized network transmission system designed specifically for the security marketplace. V'nes delivers extensive networking features and functionality with an open path allowing integration of IP products from other manufacturers' products (cameras, servers, video devices, access control, software, etc.) with any combination of V'nes components and software.

"AFI's core expertise in fiber optic communication systems and now IP video solutions makes them an ideal candidate for the Sony SSA program," said Yoshi Hirano, Sony Electronics' senior marketing manager for security products. "Working with AFI as an SSA demonstrates Sony's shared commitment to providing an open platform and diversified solutions for the IP security market."

The collaboration between the two companies additionally meets the needs of Sony's security system integrators by providing a compelling offering for their enterprise level customers. Since its launch in September of 2006, V'nes has generated unprecedented interest throughout the system integrator community.
