DVTel Selects AdventNet For Security Surveillance Network Management

Pleasanton, California, April 28, 2003

AdventNet Inc., (Booth 6742 at Networld+Interop 2003 in Las Vegas, NV), the leading provider of carrier class network management platforms and tools, and DVTel Inc., the leader in delivering integrated IP security solutions for surveillance and monitoring of assets and facilities, today announced a strategic partnership agreement. Using the AdventNet Web NMS platform, DVTel will provide advanced network management capabilities for DVTel's powerful security surveillance technology.

DVTel's technology transforms stand-alone security systems, including a digital video recorder, video matrix switch, and video multiplexer, into a full-featured, enterprise-wide Network Video Recorder System (NVRS) that functions as an integration platform for these mission-critical security systems. The DVTel SecureLink system allows for these systems to be available anywhere there is an existing phone line or Ethernet connection and creates a single optimized, secure network for all of the enterprise's security needs.

AdventNet's Web NMS is the platform of choice for implementing EMS/NMS applications. With over 100 customers among diverse domains, it is a mature and proven platform. Web NMS offers multi-tier value to customers. It bundles state-of-the-art developer tools to accelerate time to deployment. Second, it offers easy integration into existing infrastructure through open interfaces. Finally, it allows customers to focus on their domain specific issues by providing comprehensive management functionality out-of-the-box that can be easily customized to business specific needs.

"DVTel's SecureLink system and technology will add comprehensive network management using Web NMS, and will help DVTel customers manage their cost of ownership and increase ROI to enterprises" said Paul Smith COO of DVTel. "Network management is an integral part of our overall security solution and provides powerful capabilities to our customers to manage their existing security infrastructure at tremendous savings compared to any other alternative."

DVTel set out to find a platform that would deliver the suite of features that the DVTel network-based video surveillance system requires and that the Security Industry expects. The AdventNet Web NMS platform was the best choice. It delivers more of the features needed right out of the box, and it provides an easy to extend platform which allows updates to be added so that DVTel can continue to satisfy the Security Industry needs.

The DVTel NetSCAN NMS, based on the AdventNet platform, will monitor the health of IP based video network equipment. The system will automatically discover new elements such as cameras, video recording and management computer servers, access control systems and more which have been added to the network and automatically configures the elements for operation within the DVTel Security network.

Sridhar Vembu, CEO at AdventNet, said "AdventNet is excited about our first application within the Security Industry, allowing us to move our mature platform to this important application domain."

About DVTel

DVTel bridges the gap between security systems and the network by offering a full-featured, enterprise-wide Network Video Recorder System (NVRS) that functions as an integration platform for several mission-critical security systems. The NVRS Platform incorporates the most sought after features of three best-in-class hardware systems--Digital Video Recorder (DVR), video matrix switching system, and video multiplexer--into one software based system. The NVRS Platform is based on a distributed architecture, which allows the end user to leverage existing networking infrastructure while eliminating the need for multiple, costly wiring sets. With the DVTel platform there is no need for coax for video transmission, 4-wire for PTZ, 2-wire for access control, 4-wire for intercom, or 2-wire for alarm input and output control signals. All five sets of signals are carried over a standard Ethernet connection or a single twisted pair telephone line.

DVTel doesn't stop there. The NVRS platform forms the core of DVTel's total Security Information Management System--an integrated surveillance system, which organizes access control data, facility management system status, emergency procedure documents, and active maps that pinpoint security equipment location, onto one user/operator display. The Paramus, NJ-based company is privately held, with offices in the UK and Israel. For more information, visit the DVTel website at www.dvtel.com.
