Which EAC Is Best Supported/Compatible With Mercury Controllers?

Hi Folks, the Company I work for is very dynamic with constant changes. Few months ago we defined a global strategy to start migrating old systems to an "open" architecture/software that will allow us to shift gears in the future at any given time minimizing the potential cost of replacing field devices in particular controllers, therefore we decided to use Mercury.

We have selected Milestone and S2 as our primary global solutions for new deployments or upgrades for video management and access control software respectively. So far, so good. Despite of the fact that we knew there were some interoperability limitations between Mercury and S2; we decided to deploy it in low-risk operations; however, I would like to know if someone has already walk this path and if you can share any experience.

it would be helpful is someone knows if there has been any survey/research to analyze interoperability comparison between "major" EAC with Mercury.

Thanks!
