These markets include municipal utilities, transportation and traffic systems, Security/Surveillance, hospitals and building control system. Initial customers for the product include General Motors, Daimler Chrysler, Exxon, Bayer, GE, BP Oil, Philip Morris, Crane Paper, City of Cincinnati, Paris Charles De Gaulle Airport, Duke Energy, Akzo Nobel Chemicals, Anheuser Busch, Miller Brewing, NASA, Lockheed Martin, Disney, Conoco Phillips, BASF, Scotts Fertilizer, Gillette, The US Navy, and others.

“As industrial markets transition from proprietary control systems to open, Ethernet based solutions, there is a growing and unmet need for networking monitoring tools that can discover and monitor the network in real-time” stated Jim Pelusi, Managing Director of Axia Partners. “The founders of Network Vision have a long track record of supplying innovative solutions into the industrial controls market and we are excited about partnering with them in this venture”.

“We are pleased to be working with Axia Partners,” commented Mark Fondl, founder and CEO of Network Vision. “Axia’s general partners have a wealth of operating experience in the industrial automation software and controls marketplace, and we believe their active involvement in our company will bring benefits beyond what a typical venture capitalist might provide”.
