GOA, India and SAN JOSE, Calif. - March 24, 2014 - Allied Telesis, a global provider of secure IP/Ethernet switching solutions and an industry leader in the deployment of IP Triple Play networks, has won the Milestone Systems "Best Milestone Solution Partner (Best MSP)" in India award for 2013.

Milestone Systems recently held its second Milestone Partner Open Platform (MPOP) event in South Goa, India. The event was attended by Milestone Systems' top system integration partners and several industry partners, and is a global initiative wherein Milestone provides an in-depth look at how its open platform can help expand their partners' business. It also provides an opportunity to meet Milestone's ecosystem partners and learn more about the opportunities that their technologies present.

Milestone Systems chose Allied Telesis as "Best MSP" due to the close and successful working relationship between the two companies in the deployment of enterprise and video surveillance projects at several high-profile customer locations, including Mysore Palace, Indian Oil Corporation Limited, Bhabha Atomic Research Center, and Kolkata Police.

Other key criteria that factored in Allied Telesis being chosen for this award included the design and deployment experience that Allied Telesis was able to bring to these projects.

Sandesh Kaup, senior business manager, Milestone India, said, "Allied Telesis has been a strong technology-driven company with a very high level of technical expertise in managed network services. They have helped surveillance system integrators and end users with the design and implementation of very complex solutions. Milestone has truly recognized their contribution to IP surveillance as a whole."

"The Allied Telesis IP network forms the backbone of every IP video surveillance project; and uptime, resilience and performance were key to the success of these customer deployments," he commented.

In addition, the unique Autonomous Management Framework™ (AMF) was considered of great value to the video surveillance projects. AMF allows companies with medium and large networks to enjoy ultimate simplicity of deployment and management, and enables integrators to quickly deploy IP networks, making efficient use of resources.

Subhasish Gupta, country manager, Allied Telesis India, said, "Working with Milestone Systems has enabled both Allied Telesis and Milestone to deliver greater value for our customers with these complex physical security solutions. The team at Milestone has been proactive and engaging, and it is great to work with such a professional team."
