Axis Communications Opens New Experience Center in Vancouver
The 14th Axis Experience Center in the Americas, the Vancouver location showcases the latest in video surveillance, access control, audio and intercom technology.
CHELMSFORD, Mass. — Axis Communications celebrated the opening of its newest Axis Experience Center (AEC) in Vancouver, British Columbia on Wednesday, Nov. 16.
Located in the heart of the city, this new facility is Axis’ third AEC opening in the second half of 2022 and its second location established in Canada.
Axis says Vancouver was a natural choice to support its vision for strategic growth and innovation. The city is home to two million residents, including many Axis customers across key industries, including retail, transportation, critical infrastructure and technology.
Recently nicknamed “Techouver,” Vancouver has seen an explosion of jobs and development for the technology sectors, welcoming Axis into the community including Amazon, Accenture, JP Morgan and more, according to the company.
“Axis remains committed to our integrators, partners, end customers, and the communities that they serve. By expanding our geographic footprint across Canada, we’re able to offer them hands-on access to our advanced technologies and work more closely together to create new solutions,” says Keith D’Sa, country manager for Canada at Axis Communications. “Opening the Vancouver AEC is an exciting opportunity to establish a presence within a burgeoning tech hub and engage with our current — and future — partners thriving in this vibrant area while doubling down on our commitment to a more sustainable future.”
The Vancouver AEC is said to give local customers, partners and business leaders the opportunity to interact with Axis’ latest and most innovative network technologies in real-world scenarios before deploying within their own organizations.
The AEC showcases the latest in video surveillance, access control, audio and intercom technology, including the newest innovations from 2N and analytics applications like Axis Object Analytics (AOA), Perimeter Defender, People Counting, License Plate Verifier and more.
The location also serves Axis’ ongoing mission to minimize the environmental impact of its operations to help reduce its carbon footprint and responsibly use natural resources. The new AEC is located within the Broadway Tech Center, a 17-acre business campus offering sustainability features with the goal to reduce energy use, such as green roofs, electric vehicle charging stations and bicycle lockers to promote alternative travel.
This AEC was celebrated with a grand opening, featuring a ribbon cutting, presentations from community stakeholders and tours of the facility.
With more AEC announcements planned before the end of the year, Vancouver joins New York City, Boston, Atlanta, Chicago, Dallas, Fort Lauderdale, Houston, Los Angeles, San Jose, Washington D.C., Toronto, Mexico City and Sao Paulo.
