Leviton Partners With Dedicated Devices
LITTLE NECK, N.Y.
A partnership has been formed between Leviton Manufacturing Co. and Dedicated Devices Inc. (DDI) to produce a new class of device to turn ordinary structured wiring and data networks into fully capable Internet protocol (IP) Structured Media™ networks.
Leviton and DDI officials say the alliance is an attempt to deliver the “digital home of tomorrow.” “The ‘Smart Home’ has been over promised and under-delivered in the past,” said Jeffrey K. Moeser, president and CEO of the Boise-based Dedicated Devices, in a statement. “With the combination of infrastructure wiring installs reaching critical mass – along with significant advances in technology in the areas of entertainment, communications and control – the time is right to deliver the first truly practical ‘edition’ of the next generation in home technology management.”
The device produced by the partnership will integrate entertainment, communications and control applications into what are today mainly data-only networks.
