Wednesday, January 21, 2015

Siemens announced this morning that it has entered into a "long-term strategic partnership" with Milestone and will be OEMing Milestone's VMS software for its Siveillance VMS.

Siemens said Siveillance includes "software-based security platforms and modules that are used in critical infrastructures and by enterprise customers." It is also working with Milestone on "another application for the video technology ... Desigo CC management platform for building and security technology."

The Siveillance VMS in available in three versions.
    •    VMS 100 supports up to 128 cameras and is suitable for small and medium-sized facilities.
    •    VMS 200 meets the demands of centrally managed systems with the high scalability requirements typical of major industrial facilities.
    •    VMS 300 is used in systems that are distributed over multiple locations. It centrally manages user and system data. VMS 300 has a redundant design and is therefore available during network interruptions. It is suitable for critical infrastructures such as airports.


Long-term strategic partnership with Milestone
Siemens' OEM partner Milestone specializes in open, IP-based video management software. Its flexible technologies have been proven in thousands of installations worldwide.
"We are pleased to have won a leading provider of IP video management software like Milestone as our strategic partner and technology supplier," says René Jungbluth, who heads the solutions business at Siemens Building Technologies. "Siemens is a key player in the security industry, and VMS is a vital module in our Siveillance portfolio. It helps further focus and expand our enterprise security solutions business. Because the video technology can also be integrated into the Desigo CC building management platform, the software is an outstanding addition to our Total Building Solutions portfolio as well."
"The worldwide strategic partnership with Siemens is very important to us. It is not only proof of how important open platforms are, but also represents a benchmark in our long-standing business relationship," says Lars Thinggaard, president and CEO of Milestone.
