Axis Communications recently concluded the second edition ‘Eye Connect – 2016’. The theme of this three-day event was, ’Integrated Security Solution – From Myth To Reality’. The event organized during August 2 – 4, 2016 in Goa saw participation by more than 150 vendors, system integrators and partners.
With opportunities increasing in the retail, healthcare, transportation, infrastructure, manufacturing and hospitality industry both enterprise as well as small and medium businesses are grappling with issues of data security as well as physical security of its assets and equipments. Added to the current scenario of terror strikes in the country, it brings with it a range of challenges for end users and customers. To address these challenges, Axis Communications and a consortium of seven partners came together to decode how a truly integrated and intelligent surveillance can fulfill the varied requirements of the industry.
Axis Communications and other Alliance Partners - Allied Telesis, EMC2, Molex, Milestone, Samsung and Solus representing different technologies (Networking Active, Storage, Networking Passive, Video Management Software, Video Analytics and Access Control) collaborated to create an event platform to discuss industry best practices. The focus was on implementing a solution, understanding products and choosing the right manufacturer to increase efficiency and decrease cost of maintenance.
Sudhindra Holla, Country Manager, Axis Communications said, “We saw a tremendous response in our earlier edition of Eye Connect, and wanted to provide a platform which will promote a holistic solution for security products and security technology and generate awareness. I am hopeful that the event will eventually benefit end users, consultants and installers and will throw up an opportunity to evaluate how a security system and if its efficacy can be suited to the Indian context currently and in the future as well.”
Alliance partner, Sandesh Kaup, Country Manager from Milestone said, “We have formed this security industry alliance to address the key challenges faced by end users and consultants for long term support on products and their integration capability with other systems. Today, end users want to have minimum dependencies on system integrators post one year and want to be independent of the system integrator. This can only be possible with open platform technologies. We look forward to how this alliance can address some of the challenges currently faced by end-customers and consultants.”
