Milestone Systems VP Asia Pacific Japan

Japan has one of the most advanced internet infrastructures in the world, and combined with Asahi Net’s long experience, deep expertise and extensive network, Milestone is confident we will build a cloud solution that will be attractive to even the most demanding Japanese customers. The Asahi Net cloud surveillance solution is based on our flagship software, XProtect Corporate. Besides the VMS, other critical components for success are network stability and bandwidth, which Asahi Net can deliver… Milestone XProtect is running cloud solutions elsewhere in the world but this will be the first Milestone-based cloud solution in Japan. Both Milestone and Asahi Net understand that customization and thorough testing are necessary, and that is why the implementation and release of this cloud service is divided into several phases leading to the general launch next year.

PROMISE Technology is responsible for providing the surveillance cloud platform in the new partnership. PROMISE Technology will also customize the XProtect Corporate VMS according to Asahi Net’s requirements, while Milestone engineers will be involved in providing Custom Development services.

The cloud service, which includes VMS licenses, as well as the network and camera options, will be made available by Asahi Net through Milestone distributors and resellers. Milestone channel partners will be able to add the new service, which is another flexible monitoring tool, to an already extensive on-premise XProtect product line to serve different customer needs.
