Milestone Systems and Bosch Security Systems have entered into a strategic global partnership aiming at complete integration of Bosch IP video devices with Milestone XProtect IP Video Management Software. As part of the cooperation, Milestone is participating as a premium partner in the Integration Partner Program (IPP) from Bosch. IPP was designed to ensure interoperability of Bosch video products with leading software solutions.
The two companies have already worked with each other for years, but the new strategic partnership is meant to bring integration of their products to a new level. Mutual customers will be able to access more unique features with a new dedicated driver for Bosch IP devices that is now available from Milestone. The driver supports edge storage and Bosch’s embedded Intelligent Video Analysis offering for advanced notification of potential security risks, as well as other unique features available in Bosch’s broad range of IP video products. In the past, Milestone Systems has already supported tamper and motion detection and H.264 compression from Bosch’s IP video devices. “In our Integration Partner Program we have dedicated resources working to ensure customers can access our latest technology innovations with the software from Milestone Systems,” said Rudolf Spielberger, Head of the Integration Partner Program at Bosch.
“Milestone is excited to be in the top tier of the new Integration Partner Program, which leverages our open platform approach to IP video surveillance,” stated Christian Bohn, VP Corporate Marketing and Alliances, Milestone Systems.
As part of their strategic partnership, Bosch and Milestone Systems have intensified their joint marketing efforts, demonstrating the integrated solution at trade shows, conferences and events around the globe as well as in Bosch’s new product exhibit truck in North America.
