Council of Europe Buildings Are Secured by Axis, ENGIE Ineo and Milestone

The Council of Europe has upgraded its video solutions at the campus in Strasbourg, France, thanks to dedicated efforts by Milestone community partners. Milestone collaborated with partners ENGIE Ineo and Axisto to upgrade the Council of Europe’s video surveillance systems and the project was managed by Milestone community partners Securitas and ENGIE Ineo.

The security solution, based on XProtect networked video management software (VMS), has been in operation since January 2017, securing the Council’s vast campus including the Human Rights Building, European Directorate for the Quality of Medicines & Healthcare, the European Center for Youth and the Agora building. The security surveillance and monitoring solution was installed to cover all access areas including the entire external perimeter. The contract also includes a five-year maintenance agreement.

ENGIE Ineo partnered with Milestone and Axis for their video expertise (video management software and network cameras respectively). The legacy analog surveillance system has been replaced with a full network video surveillance solution that delivers better performance, including ease of access and retrieval of video assets, as well as a flexible solution that allows the Council to tailor how locations are secured. With the Milestone XProtect solution, the organization is now able to handle all its safety operations through a single management interface, as well as manage other security devices such as gate control systems and thermal cameras.

This project has once again demonstrated how effective our partnerships are. The way that we work and collaborate with the teams at ENGIE Ineo and Axis has contributed significantly to the success of this impressive installation. With Milestone’s solution, the Council of Europe now has the right surveillance management technology in place. Itis perfectly tailored to their needs in terms of accessibility, scalability, cost, ease of use and performance. – Amine Sadi, Country Manager France, Milestone Systems

The project was designed to keep disruption to a minimum, taking into account the busy schedule of the Council of Europe, particularly during parliamentary sessions.
