Author: John Honovich, Published on Feb 15, 2012

Each year, the Milestone Partner conference provides an opportunity for Milestone and their manufacturer partners such as Axis to share their projections. SSI Magazine has done a good job of recapping detailed claims made at the conference. In this note, we examine the key ones made including Milestone's revenue growth and market segment breakdown plus the future of thermal cameras, video analytics, patent trolls and VSaaS.
