April 8, 2015 | By Business Wire News


Belden Inc. (NYSE: BDC), a global leader in signal transmission solutions for mission-critical applications, announced today that it has been recognized with a 2015 Global Frost & Sullivan Award for its Product Line Strategy Leadership. The award is given annually to a company with a comprehensive product portfolio that caters to the breadth of the markets it serves, drives customer value and increases market share.

“Belden is not just a supplier of signal transmission products, but a true strategic business partner delivering solutions that make end-user facilities perform more efficiently and profitably. Its global presence places it in close proximity to most of its customers and partners,” said a Frost & Sullivan analyst.

Frost & Sullivan Best Practices Awards are backed by research and validated independently by industry analysts and consultants across multiple markets and geographies. The key benchmarks for the award include product line strength (breadth, scalability, features) and customer impact (performance value, customer purchase/ownership experience, brand equity).

“The depth, breadth and quality of Belden’s product portfolio have been driven by a global, customer-centric focus on innovation, reliability and resiliency,” said Dhrupad Trivedi, president of Belden’s Industrial IT platform. “Starting with the addition of Hirschmann’s industry-leading industrial Ethernet switches in 2007 and most recently, Tripwire’s advanced cybersecurity software, Belden has consistently invested to lead market transitions and partner with our customers to create winning solutions.”

Belden combines this best-in-class product portfolio with excellent sales and support services, training options and a one-of-a-kind industrial network certification program. All of these aspects keep Belden at the forefront of industry trends.

“Our proven approach to product line strategy is backed by our long history of early adoption of the latest technology developments to create purpose-built solutions for our customers. This included the transition to Industrial Ethernet and now the Industrial Internet of Things,” added Trivedi.
