Harman has increased its focus on security communication for road tunnels signing a distribution partnership agreement with Commend International.

The companies are combining Harman’s Axys Tunnel PA loudspeakers with Commend’s communication hub and will use Comment’s worldwide distribution network to market the integration system.

Commend will also act as distributor of Axys Tunnel products for the EMEA region and provide training and after-sales services to local customers with Axys Tunnel installations. 

Nick Screen, director of global business development transportation and sports venues at Harman, said: “Recently we have seen the demand for a complete ‘microphone to loudspeaker’ solution with greater functionality and interfaces. Commend’s software and hardware in combination with the Axys Tunnel products will provide customers with a feature-rich solution that will simplify tunnel operations and deliver intelligibility.”
