Anixter, Citing Axis, Sets Industry Back Years

Author: John Honovich, Published on Mar 19, 2013

Anixter declares, "The biggest business driver is that an IP based solution is less expensive than an analog solution." Not only is this factually wrong, it is terrible advice that would hurt both buyers and sellers of IP systems. Alas, this is central to Anixter's mega marketing campaign for ISC West. Watch this one minute video as they pull Axis into this:
