Crofton, Md. (PRWEB) October 03, 2011
Force 3 announced today that it has achieved TelePresence Video Advanced Authorized Technology Provider (ATP) status from Cisco. This designation recognizes Force 3 as having fulfilled the training requirements and program prerequisites to sell, deploy and support Cisco TelePresence Video products and solutions at the Advanced level.
The Cisco TelePresence Video Advanced 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 TelePresence Video solutions. The Advanced-level program’s goal is to enable partners to market TelePresence Video endpoints with a full breadth of infrastructure solutions in addition to managed videoconferencing services.
“This is an outstanding accomplishment for Force 3 and demonstrates our desire to expand our expertise in the Telepresence market,” said Sudhir Verma, Senior Director of Consulting. “We are committed to working together with Cisco to enhance our mutual capabilities to support our customers.”
“The Cisco TelePresence Video Advanced 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 Advanced ATP Partner, Force 3 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.
