BT Achieves Two Cisco Powered Telepresence Designations

BT has received two Cisco Powered designations for TelePresence: Network Connection and Managed TelePresence.

The Network Connection designation applies to Cisco TelePresence solutions that include managed Wide Area Network (WAN) connectivity provided via BT’s global MPLS network.

The Cisco TelePresence services designation applies to Cisco TelePresence solutions that include BT One Care Preferred, BT Conferencing’s end-to-end support solution for Cisco TelePresence.

Osvaldo Bianchi, vice president of worldwide channels for Cisco, said: “To achieve these certifications, BT proved their expertise and commitment. Passing Cisco’s rigorous Managed Service Channel Program audit demonstrates that BT has successfully built a sophisticated managed services practice that will deliver a great customer experience.”

Jeff Prestel, general manager of BT Conferencing’s Video Business Unit, said: “BT’s managed services make video conferencing easy to use, cost effective and reliable for our customers. These new certifications demonstrate both BT’s expertise and commitment to providing customers with a seamless, global, managed TelePresence solution that helps them meet and accelerate their business benefits.”
