June 7, 2007 -- Axis Communications Inc. hosted its second annual Axis Channel Convergence Conference (ACCC) last month in Fort Myers, Florida. At the event, a gathering of the company's top North American distributors, systems integrators, development partners, and strategic infrastructure partners and consultants, Milestone Systems, Inc. was awarded as Axis's "North American ADP Partner of the Year."
The Applications Developer Partner (ADP) is a program of international alliances that Axis Communications started several years ago, which has now grown to include more than 400 companies worldwide. Milestone Systems was one of the first ADP partners; hundreds subsequent successful customer installations have demonstrated the winning combination of Axis network hardware with the Milestone XProtect open platform IP video management software, according to the companies.
Axis says the ADP Program aims to create product and organizational synergies between Axis products and application developers, for the benefit of customers. The program offers compatible application software and complete system solutions to meet surveillance needs.
"Our ADP partners are carefully selected companies that meet stringent qualification criteria. From professional video surveillance systems to remote monitoring applications or advanced video analytics, Axis together with our Application Development Partners will provide the solution," says Fredrik Nilsson, General Manager of Axis Communications, Inc. "Milestone Systems has proven time and again that such cooperation brings the best synergy for real benefits at the customer level."
Over 140 Axis partners in the network video surveillance market participated at the ACCC event, which included discussions relating to trends toward IP-based technology, the Axis product portfolio and plans, and customer success stories.
"Milestone is passionate about working with our partners to grow business through expanding opportunities with IP video surveillance. This ADP award is a great tribute to the Milestone team and our successful relationship with Axis," comments Eric Fullerton, president of Milestone Systems Inc. "Systems integrators and consultants in the security industry know that Milestone XProtect IP video software is a powerful platform for managing Axis network cameras and video servers. Our companies' close working relationship over the years has ensured full support of all their hardware."
