The newly inaugurated Experience Center serves as a hub for showcasing the advanced capabilities of Milestone Kite, designed to meet the growing demand for cloud solutions in video management. This move highlights Milestone Systems' commitment to expanding its footprint in the Indian market and providing customers with innovative, secure, and scalable cloud-based video surveillance options.

By establishing this Experience Center, Milestone Systems not only strengthens its presence in India but also reinforces its position as a pioneer in cloud technology for video management systems. This strategic initiative underscores the company's dedication to delivering top-notch solutions and fostering technological advancement in the region.

Milestone Kite, the company's new Video Surveillance as a Service (VSaaS) product, was also introduced in India during the event. It is a highly scalable cloud solution that works with over 25,000 devices and can be accessed from anywhere in the world. Milestone Kite is an easy-to-install and-use security management tool that requires less physical infrastructure, allowing firms to concentrate more on their main business.

Malou Toft, Vice President, Milestone Systems for APAC, said: “We’re incredibly excited to be opening our brand-new Experience Center in India as it embarks on its Viksit Bharat 2047 initiative—a pivotal moment in the country's history. Milestone is committed to becoming a trusted growth partner by offering advanced video technologies that enhance productivity, unlocking capabilities such as data-driven business analytics, industrial automation, and real-time incident reporting.”

The purpose of the company's new Experience Center is to showcase the advanced video applications' adaptability, especially their numerous applications outside of traditional surveillance. Visitors to the center will be able to test out Milestone Kite as well as technologies such as heatmapping, which maximizes productivity in data centers and manufacturing operations, crowd control and automated baggage security for airports, and AI-powered passenger flow analytics for railways and other public transportation infrastructure.

With the introduction of Milestone Kite, businesses in India now have access to video management software which is ideally suited to operations with multiple locations with a small number of cameras at each site. The service is particularly well suited to organizations with limited IT capabilities, bandwidth limitations, or premises where installing on-site gateway hardware is not feasible. Milestone Kite is made incredibly flexible by its ability to incorporate a range of value-added integrations, whether it is simple visitor tracking or deep analytics powered by artificial intelligence and machine learning. 

The government of India is launching the "Viksit Bharat 2047" program, which intends to transform the nation into a developed economy by the time of its 100th anniversary of independence in 2047, coinciding with the center's opening. This strategy is supported by a strong emphasis on exports and the manufacturing sector, along with significant investments in infrastructure, including the construction of industrial corridors and airports, around the nation.

The Danish Ambassador to India, His Excellency Freddy Svane, said: “The relationship between Denmark and India is built upon a commitment to multifaceted, sustainable partnerships that benefit both our countries. The launch of Milestone’s first Experience Center in India is a testament to the ongoing strength of this bilateral relationship, and I look forward to seeing more Danish companies expanding their presence and forging deeper roots in this incredibly dynamic, fast-growing economy. Milestone is playing a part in the realization of Viksit Bharat by tapping into Bharat* as the world’s new powerhouse of technologies and talents."

Malou Toft added: “By focusing on key verticals such as automobile manufacturing, smart cities, critical infrastructure, and data centers, we want to help support economic progress, leading the way for improved well-being across all parts of society. As our Experience Center demonstrates, our technology can also play a crucial role in quality-of-life contexts by enhancing public safety, improving the efficiency of infrastructure, and offering a more secure environment at locations such as schools and hospitals. We’re looking forward to partnering with stakeholders across a diverse range of sectors as India works towards a future of greater prosperity for all.”

This Experience Center is Milestone Systems’ third facility of its kind in Asia Pacific, and is the latest move by the company to expand its footprint in the Indian market, having previously opened offices in Mumbai, Delhi, and Bangalore.
