October 20, 2021 – Siemon and Igor announced they have expanded their partnership within the smart building partner ecosystem “to better meet customer needs and expand opportunities in the growing smart building market.”
Siemon and Igor specialize in network infrastructure and power-over-Ethernet (PoE)-based IoT solutions, respectively.
“Siemon and Igor have a long history of working together on a variety of smart building projects, and it was important to formalize our partnership in a way that creates a more harmonious, collaborative effort and allows us to provide innovative turnkey solutions that deliver greater value to our customers,” said Siemon’s Bob Allan.
Igor’s smart building platform, Nexos, is a fully integrated PoE communications platform that connects devices, fixtures and systems into one centralized system. Siemon’s cabling solutions provide the backbone for delivering PoE power and connectivity to Igor nodes and other smart building devices.
“We understand the importance of a robust cabling infrastructure to connect and deliver reliable PoE to our Nexos nodes for supporting a wide variety of smart building devices,” said Igor’s Dwight Stewart.
The expanded Siemon-Igor partnership is based on a Memorandum of Understanding that includes synergistic marketing, sales and support strategy, and a roadmap that aligns with the evolving smart building industry and provides customers with access to expert knowledge and resources.
