NextiraOne Recognised as Cisco TelePresence Video Master Authorized Technology Provider Partner in UK
NextiraOne UK joins NextiraOne Poland in achieving key TelePresence Video accreditation
Lichfield, 29 November 2011 – NextiraOne announced today that it has achieved TelePresence Video Master Authorized Technology Provider (ATP) status from Cisco. This designation recognizes NextiraOne as having fulfilled the training requirements and program prerequisites to sell, deploy and support Cisco TelePresence Video products and solutions at the Master level.
The Cisco TelePresence Video Master ATP Program is focused on providing a new way of working in which everyone, everywhere can be more productive through face-to-face collaboration with Cisco TelePresence Video solutions. A Cisco TelePresence Video Master ATP Partner has the greatest depth of knowledge and skill in deploying the entire Cisco video endpoint portfolio, which comprises single- and triple-screen Cisco TelePresence units, custom TelePresence suites, and infrastructure solutions. Cisco TelePresence Video Master ATP Partners possess deep networking and advanced Cisco Unified Communications capabilities, regional to global coverage, and a strong and mature services practice.
Shirley Hemstock, Practice Leader for Collaboration and Customer Interaction at NextiraOne UK, said: “This accreditation is the final building block for us in creating a comprehensive, end-to-end Unified Communications offering. The combination of this accreditation and our own dedicated Unified Building Services division for the physical infrastructure puts us in a powerful, market-leading position in delivering cost efficient Telepresence solutions for our customers.”
“The Cisco TelePresence Video Master ATP Program is designed to enable partners to take advantage of the tremendous market opportunities ahead – not only in the telepresence space but also in the overall collaboration market,” said Richard McLeod, senior director of collaboration for worldwide channels at Cisco. “As a Cisco TelePresence Video Master ATP Partner, NextiraOne has made an investment in the sales, technical and life cycle services capabilities needed to deliver the industry’s most comprehensive and interoperable Cisco TelePresence Video portfolio.”
The Cisco Authorized Technology Provider (ATP) Program is part of the Cisco go-to-market strategy for emerging technologies. The program helps Cisco to define the knowledge, skills and services that channel partners need to successfully sell, deploy and support an emerging technology. As the market changes, an ATP designation may be discontinued or may evolve into a Cisco specialization.
