It was a very fruitful week at the ASIS, and we wish to thank all our IP Surveillance Camera partners for taking the time and interest to work with us on interoperability verification testing of their products with Cisco Medianet. Plugfest has indeed triggered interest in all our partners, and they have been as excited as we are on this partnership. The concept of the network being a fundamental platform for rolling out various services that facilitate deployment and management of rich media networks has been very well received. Partners have shared how important this could be for them, especially in terms of making their solutions more deployable and with regard to customers seeing improved value in their products. Hence, the stage is very well set for building on two key priorities for Cisco: the Network as a Platform vision and Video.
It was a busy and very interesting week as well: we tested with close to 11 partners, generating very positive results. This has not just been a testimony of how MSP works with various vendors, but also of how much vendors have been compliant to standards based protocols in the Surveillance world. We are analyzing the test results in greater detail to figure out the gaps and improvements, and will be taking this engagement forward by working with our partners on CDN and solution improvements. We picked up a lot of good lessons on what’s important to the IP Surveillance folks, what key problems they would like to see solved, and how to get various types of IP cameras operational. Apart from sharing the benefits of Plugfest and MSP with partners and explaining what they need to do to work with us, the live testing that we did with the 11 vendors at the booth saved a lot of time for both us and our partners, and gave us invaluable information on different cameras that will help in solidifying the solution.
We are looking forward to future advances with all our partners (we look forward to your support, much the same way as we have received so far!) and to build on the momentum we have built at the ASIS!
