Firetide, a provider of wireless infrastructure mesh networks, and Milestone Systems, the open platform company in IP VMS, announced their strategic alliance to provide video surveillance control and management capabilities over Firetide's wireless infrastructure mesh networks. With this alliance, Milestone combines its software solutions to control and manage large IP-based video surveillance systems with Firetide's high-speed and secure wireless networks.
"The implementation of the open platform VMS with Firetide's infrastructure mesh networks expands the capabilities of our solutions, enabling new and more flexible video surveillance deployments," said Eric Fullerton, CSMO at Milestone Systems. "Customers employing our integrated solution will benefit from the speed and mobility with which they can deliver the video data even in geographically spread out environments.”
The two companies' integrated wireless surveillance system has been implemented in demanding environments. For example, in the Philippines, President Benigno Aquino III's inauguration celebration event and first State of the Nation Address were secured by a real-time Firetide wireless infrastructure mesh network and open-platform video management from Milestone.
"The partnership between Firetide and Milestone gives users a video surveillance solution that has widespread applications for government, transportation and commercial markets," said Bo Larsson, CEO of Firetide. "As our successes to date show, the integrated wireless video system from Firetide and Milestone gives our customers a solution for streaming and managing real-time video surveillance in the demanding of settings.”
