Axis Communications, the market leading IP Surveillance vendor, together with Singapore Telecom (SingTel) today announced the new SingTel/Expan eSurveillance service. This value added service is powered by the Axis Subscriber Technology System (ST System), a solution optimized for telecommunications providers, Internet Service Providers (ISPs) and mobile operators looking to offer their Small and Medium-Sized Enterprise (SME) customers a cost-effective, managed IP Video Surveillance service.

The AXIS ST System enables SingTel to offer their SME customers a
'plug and play' IP Surveillance system, with the option of bundling
this with Axis Communications' network cameras. Customers using
broadband simply need to connect their Axis network cameras to a
network, and begin video monitoring from any PC connected to the
Internet.

Mr. Wong Soon Nam, SingTel's Vice President of Corporate Business
Marketing, said:
"Customers enjoy huge cost savings from this fully outsourced video
surveillance solution. Those who need multi-site surveillance
services will find SingTel's eSurveillance capable of providing them
with high security and resource efficiency for their operations."

This value added services now allows SingTel/Expan users to have

* Live viewing of video via Internet
* SMS and email alerts of unexpected events triggered by motion
detection
* Offsite recording of pre/post alarm video sequences
* Central management of all cameras in the system
* Secure authentication of users


"We are extremely pleased to collaborate with SingTel in providing
the enhanced peace of mind which the ST System can offer their
customers. A remotely delivered IP-Surveillance service with central
management and no maintenance is a natural extension for carriers and
mobile operators. It opens up their core business to the significant
growth industry of IP based video security, which we see as key part
of our long-term strategy in generating new customer segments" said
Ray Mauritsson, CEO of Axis Communications.
