"Cisco has been an important partner for us over the years." said Scott Muggli, Director of Sales & Marketing for Warner Connect. "Our partner status allows us to take advantage of Cisco incentive programs and other resources that enables us to make Fortune 500 technology available (and affordable) to smaller organizations."
In fact Warner Connect has been a Cisco Partner since 2001.

Cisco Unified Communications connects people, information, and teams, helping to enable comprehensive and effective collaborative experiences.
