Cisco recognition for surveillance system installer

World Wide Technology : 29 December, 2008  (Company News)
WWT gains ATP status for video surveillance from Cisco for providing IP network based camera and access control installations
World Wide Technology (WWT) has achieved Video Surveillance Authorised Technology Provider (ATP) status from Cisco. This designation recognises WWT as having fulfilled the training requirements and program prerequisites to design, resell, install and maintain a full range of video surveillance and access-control solutions.

Cisco physical-security solutions provide network-centric capabilities to video surveillance, Internet Protocol (IP) cameras, electronic access control and other groundbreaking technologies by converging voice, data and physical security into a single appliance. This enables customers to preserve existing investments in analog-based technology and to use the network as a platform upon which more collaborative and integrated physical-security systems can be built. As customers converge physical-security infrastructures and operations and begin using the network as a platform, they gain rapid access to relevant information and increase interoperability with other IP-centric systems. This enables higher levels of situational awareness in environments where intelligent and timely decision making is crucial.

"WWT is proud to be recognised by Cisco for our expertise and ability to design, deploy and support their full range of video surveillance solutions," said Matt Horner, vice president of professional services for World Wide Technology. "We look forward to helping higher education institutions, K-12 school districts, federal agencies, public safety, transportation industry clients and more take advantage of these physical security solutions that not only employ the latest technology available, but are easy to integrate with existing security measures. Moreover, certification in these key areas underscores WWT's continuing commitment to delivering the most sophisticated Cisco solutions available."

"As we move into new markets and emerging technologies, our designation as a Cisco Authorized Technology Provider will be instrumental in helping our customers turn innovative technology into a competitive advantage," added Ashish Upadhyay, senior manager of advanced technology at WWT.

To qualify for the Video Surveillance ATP Program, WWT had to meet a number of requirements, from having staff fulfill specific job responsibilities to achieving the Cisco Express Foundation Specialisation. Those requirements are designed to help a partner maintain high levels of customer satisfaction.

The Cisco ATP Program is a key part of Cisco's emerging technology go-to-market strategy. The program helps define the knowledge, skills and services that channel partners need to successfully sell, deploy and support a subject technology. As markets mature and technologies progress along the adoption curve, some ATP programs may migrate to Cisco specialisations.

WWT is a Cisco Gold-Certified Channel Partner with over $1 billion in annual Cisco sales , ranking as one of the largest suppliers of Cisco networking and communications solutions to the U.S. government. The company has more than 100 Cisco-certified engineers and over 500 Cisco certifications in advanced Cisco technologies, including Master Unified Communications Specialisation and Master Security Specialization, Advanced Data Center Networking Infrastructure and Network Specialisations, Rich Media Communications, Advanced Wireless LAN, Advanced Storage and more.
