We are delighted to announce our new partnership with OPTEX, a world-leading manufacturer of high-performance sensing technologies.

OPTEX's award-winning Intelligent Visual Monitoring Solution is a cost-effective solution that adds video to a monitored alarm system. It consists of an IP device, The Bridge, which links sensors or panic buttons to ONVIF cameras, mapping the detection zones to the right cameras and a cloud-based gated portal which is then connected to the ARC.

To ensure The Bridge is always working it needs to be connected. CSL Router provides secure, reliable
and rapidly deployable 4G connectivity, ensuring an always-on service to guarantee The Bridge’s
resilience. For all sites where it is critical to ensure continuous operation, OPTEX recommend their
customers to have redundancy and include our award-winning solution.

OPTEX can be used with all variants within the CSL Router range including the 4G only or 4G back-up
options. Both send data via 4G, providing an instant, encrypted connection to the internet on sites where
wired broadband is unavailable, impractical or slow. The 4G back-up option upgrades the existing
broadband service to a private network and provides a reliable failover business solution if your wired
broadband goes down. Dual SIM options are available for further redundancy and the autonomous nature
of the CSL Router makes it ideal for rural installations where no wired broadband is available or
installations that require a dedicated, independent connection.

Our Sales Director, Rob Evans, commented: “We are delighted to announce OPTEX as our latest
partners, taking advantage of the benefits of CSL Router. It is part of our ongoing commitment to ensure
our solutions are compatible with leading manufacturers in our sector, offering Installers the very best of
both solutions”.

OPTEX’s Sales Director, Ben Linklater, added: “Connectivity is fundamental for the good functioning of
our Visual Monitoring solution. Security is also key, and a lot of development work went into making sure
the communication between The Bridge and the Cloud is secure. Connecting The Bridge to a CSL 4G
Router ensures those two critical requirements are always met – a guarantee of constant connectivity as
well as an independent and encrypted connection to the internet”.
