Silicon Valley, February 1, 2012 – Moonblink Communications, a value-added distributor delivering wireless and video surveillance solutions, today announced it has deployed its Video Surveillance as a Service (VSaaS) offering to secure a retail store located on the Las Vegas Strip. Moonblink was selected by Top Speed Internet Service, the retail location's service provider, because Moonblink's VSaaS service – powered by EMC and Axis Communications – offers better security, greater ease of use and lower cost of deployment than building its own hosted infrastructure.
"When our customer approached us and asked for a video surveillance solution, we originally evaluated the cost of building out our own hosted surveillance infrastructure – but found that approach to be far too costly," said Nick Utiger, Partner at Top Speed Internet Service. "Not only is Moonblink's VSaaS solution more secure, but we were able to get it up and running in no time, and for a fraction of the cost – enabling us to provide a better service to the customer at a lower cost."
Top Speed needed a solution that could be installed quickly, reduce the cost of deployment and would allow them to monitor the surveillance footage remotely. Not only does Moonblink's VSaaS offering enable simple remote monitoring from any location via any Internet connected device, but it reduces the upfront hardware investment as well as the ongoing maintenance and management costs – giving Top Speed an ideal solution for deploying IP-based video surveillance cost effectively.
"I could not be more impressed with the service we've received from Moonblink throughout the deployment, and how smoothly everything has gone," said Utiger. "The system performs better than expected, and moving forward, Top Speed will be using VSaaS exclusively for all future video surveillance deployments."
Moonblink's VSaaS offering bundles Moonblink's years of video surveillance planning and deployment expertise, which resellers can leverage when planning surveillance networks, with EMC's information infrastructure expertise, which gives resellers and customers the peace of mind of knowing their critical surveillance footage is safe and secure. By utilizing Axis network surveillance cameras and encoders onsite and EMC Storage at the data center, resellers can offer the Moonblink VSaaS bundle to customers at a fraction of the standard DVR/NVR deployment costs. The solution is truly plug and play – simply connect a camera or encoder to the Internet, enter the device's serial number into the software management system, and you're up and running. Footage is stored remotely and that footage becomes fully accessible from anywhere via any Web browser.
There are four tiers of pricing for the Moonblink VSaaS bundle, which are based on how much data is to be stored, the resolution needed, frames per second, and the number of days footage needs to be stored. More information can be found here: http://cloud.moonblink.com/buy/tiers.html
