Bosch and Emizon signs new agreement to harness 21CN

Product Profile

Bosch Security Systems has signed a co-operation agreement with Emizon - the secure, 24/7 managed messaging service for 21st Century Networks (21CN) - to provide a Stand-Alone Telemetry Communications Device (TCD) to enable alarm panels to be directly and easily connected to the Emizon Service Platform.

The new TCD, to be distributed throughout the UK using Bosch's extensive distribution contacts, features 16 pin alarm inputs and dual path IP and GPRS signalling.  It complies with all relevant European Norms (ENs), 21CN, meets police requirements for confirmed alarms and is in line with current insurance industry requirements.  Very easy to install straight out of the box, the new device is designed for all security installations requiring secure signalling up to EN Grade 4.

Darren Cox, Product Manager of Bosch Security Systems, explains, "The new TCD is the latest addition to the Bosch signalling portfolio and is available with the added feature of dual path signalling to supplement the existing BLU STU.  It will enable installers to connect to the Emizon Service Platform quickly and easily, whilst still maintaining the high security standards associated with traditional dual path signalling services.

"One of the key advantages will be cost.  There will now be no need for a designated PSTN line with the associated rental costs, and monitoring costs will also be subject to cost savings.  The TCD can be installed and commissioned in a single visit, which again enables the installer to make best use of their time."

Bob Tuck, Emizon's Managing Director, adds, "Emizon is about the practical application of leading edge technology to every day business.  By working collaboratively across the industry with leaders such as Bosch Security Systems we are ensuring that the industry harnesses the potential of IP monitoring, whilst protecting the security needs of all our customers both now and in the future."
