Considering that Physical Security project for Spring 2017 are beginning to close, we want to encourage our IP Technology Partners to bring us in early to discuss projects so we can ensure accuracy and timeliness. We have been helping Partners expand projects and add unique features by blending in specialized ABP Solutions, tailored to your project's needs. Our vision is to always help you un-commoditize your offering by providing more intelligent solutions. These solutions soothe the pain points your customers experience, even the ones they didn't think were possible to resolve.
This year, ABP is expanding our Wireless offerings with Sierra Wireless (a low-wattage LTE access with SIM cards & fixed IP addresses from ABP), EnGenius (bridges with PoE for cameras), and Altai/InfiNet (long range point-to-point or point-to-multipoint). Stay tuned for our new Kentix 360° Environmental Security monitoring solution which we will officially launch in April. And last but not least, make sure you check out and have access to ABP's new, innovative Partner Portal.

Product Announcements: MOBOTIX & Overland
The recent announcement upon MOBOTIX and Overland Storage means that projects at all sizes have just gotten easier. Technicians can now deploy a MOBOTIX system up to 50 cameras with no more than a few minutes of configuration to get recording on a SnapServer. Integrators will never have enough time in a day for each job, but this solution will let you breathe easier.
We feel a press release by Sphere3D described it perfectly: "The preconfigured, performance optimized MOBOTIX SnapServer® SKUs each come with an illustrated and easy quick start guide. It can also scale to support up to 50 cameras. When deployed with provisioned MOBOTIX IP cameras, the installation time is reduced by more than 90 percent when compared to a typical Mobotix video surveillance solution." By purchasing this solution through ABP, your cameras will now power up and start automatically streaming to the SnapServer® without extra steps.
Our CEO, Robert Messer was quoted in an article by Yahoo!, Overland Storage Partners with MOBOTIX AG to Deliver Plug and Play Video Surveillance Data Storage Offering, stating, "We at ABP Tech pride ourselves on providing our VARs with 'best of breed' components to deliver the solutions best suited for their applications. For IP video surveillance, we have consistently included SnapServer® solutions due to their high quality and reliability... We are excited to be able to now offer the SnapServer® MOBOTIX integrated Plug and Play video surveillance solution, as it will reduce the on-site configuration and installation, which ultimately increases the bottom-line for our network of partners."
