Quanergy Announces Duxbury Networking As First South African Distributor

Global LiDAR company expands reach of signature security solution


SUNNYVALE, Calif.—October 15, 2018–Quanergy Systems, Inc., a global leader in the development and manufacture of LiDAR sensors and smart sensing solutions, today announced that Duxbury Networking will serve as the company’s first South African distributor. The company is looking to Duxbury to help expand its reach across South Africa and grow sales of Quanergy’s innovative LiDAR-based security system, QORTEX for Security™.

QORTEX for Security is an innovative, LiDAR-based 3D perimeter fencing and intrusion detection system. The integrated hardware and software platform combines Quanergy’s M8 mechanical LiDAR sensor with its proprietary QORTEX perception software. The platform is fully integrated into existing VMS (Video Management System) and PSIM (Physical Security Information Management) infrastructure and offers surveillance automation with real-time detection, tracking, and classification.

“LiDAR technology has near limitless potential applications across industries and the globe,” said Dr. Louay Eldada, CEO of Quanergy. “Working with Duxbury will allow Quanergy to extend our global presence by bringing our technology to an entirely new market in South Africa.”

“Duxbury Networking strives to bring the world’s most innovative technology to South Africa,” said Graham Duxbury, CEO of Duxbury Networking. “Working with Quanergy to bring South Africa access to QORTEX for Security is a significant milestone for our company and enables us to provide our clients with the most advanced security solutions.”

Quanergy first announced its QORTEX for Security product in January 2018 at CES. In recent weeks, the company shared details of a perimeter security pilot program currently underway on private land in Texas, where the QORTEX for Security product is being tested for potential use on the US-Mexico border, as well as a strategic collaboration with defense technology company CRON to utilize QORTEX for Security on the Indian border.
