Pelco By Schneider Electric Strengthens Partnership With Milestone Systems

Pelco and Milestone to provide greater level of integration and compatibility for enhanced feature sets and expanded performance

Schneider Electric recently announced that it is tightening relations with Milestone Systems, the open platform company in IP video management software. This collaboration is evolving for Pelco as a long-time Milestone Manufacturer Alliance Partner (MAP) in response to market demand. Milestone and Pelco Channel Partners and customers now gain the advantage of new and deeper integrations between Pelco IP Cameras and Milestone Systems IP video management software.

Going forward, Milestone Systems will provide deeper integration support for Pelco’s IP-based cameras in the award-winning XProtect-family of open platform VMS. The closer relationship between Milestone’s open platform and Pelco’s IP cameras enables partners and customers to explore the advanced capacities of Pelco cameras and Milestone XProtect video management software. This gives Milestone and Pelco active roles in shaping and driving the industry by better supporting the channel partners who create solutions to meet the diverse needs of customers worldwide.

The support today of Pelco analytics with the latest version of Milestone device pack is already a good example of this cooperation. It gives our joint customers the possibility to use at the edge advance analytics and have events and information reported and managed by Milestone XProtect software.

Pelco Stéphane Lantoine, Pelco by Schneider Electric Director of Integration Operations, says “We are very pleased. Our collaboration with Milestone demonstrates Pelco’s commitment to be a true open systems provider, and we will continuously focus on the areas that will offer flexible, reliable and scalable feature-rich integrated security solutions to our mutual customers. We are excited about this cooperation as it opens the door to achieve win-win cases for both companies in the video surveillance market.”

Christian Bohn, Milestone Systems VP Corporate Marketing & Alliances, says: “We are not only excited to further intensify our cooperation with a leading IP-based camera manufacturer like Pelco, we are also seeing great advantages for the market by providing better support for Pelco’s advanced technologies. This initiative further expands the possibilities for our channel partners, as they now get more options to integrate Pelco’s advanced IP cameras into cutting-edge solutions utilizing Pelco and Milestone technologies to their fullest extent.”
