Meet the Milestone Systems community at the biggest ever Intersec Dubai 2017

UAE – Milestone Systems, the leading open platform company in video management software (VMS), will be celebrating its MEA successes at Intersec, 22-24th January 2017 in Dubai.

For the 8th consecutive year, Milestone will be highlighting the latest solutions based on open platform technology and showcase new, cutting edge propositions from the Milestone partner community. Attendees can meet the team and a number of key partners at the Milestone booth S1-H26.

Market leader

Ranked global number 1 VMS vendor for the ninth straight year in 2016 by IHS Markit, Milestone offers customers a flexible, scalable and future-proof video management solution. The software is sold through a network of authorized and certified partners in an open platform community.


“As we continue to develop our solutions with the open platform community, it’s important that our efforts and those of our partners be acknowledged and shared,” said Bjorn Eilertsen, CTO, Milestone Systems (pictured). “Receiving so much industry recognition is an honor and an affirmation of the success of Milestone’s open platform IP video surveillance platform that enables system integrators to implement the best combined systems for each customer. This will spur us all on to greater innovations in our goal to help the world be a safer place.”

MEA success story

The Milestone MEA organisation has seen an extensive expansion the past few years, with several large implementations at key regional customers. From protecting key tourist and cultural treasures to leading shopping malls, retail and leisure pioneers, Milestone and its partner community effectively manage multi-site surveillance and security operations across the MENA region. The open platform solution provides customers with flexible and scalable surveillance solutions that can easily be extended to any new demands or challenges that may arise.


Thomas Lausten, Milestone Systems VP EMEA (pictured) added: “We are dedicated to strengthening our local presence across the whole MEA region, in order to respond to the many opportunities with our open platform technology and dedicated partner community. We are investing in and expanding our market presence and have recruited a number of very strong employees. Pairing our unique technology with the best people in the industry has proven a successful combination and we are proud to now be the market leader in EMEA.”
