West IP Communications (News - Alert) recently announced that it has been awarded the Cisco Gold Partner and Cisco Cloud Provider certifications. West IP Communications’ capability to offer the most sophisticated Unified Communications (News - Alert)-as-a-Service applications has been further demonstrated by these honors.
The Master certification for Cisco (News - Alert) Managed Services Channel Program has been previously accomplished by West IP Communications, and the compan now joins a select group of providers in the country that have been certified by Cisco in all the three programs.
In a statement, Bob Wise (News - Alert), EVP, West IP Communications said, “Our long-term partnership and commitment to delivering Cisco technology to our clients is a key reason we sought out and achieved these three critical Cisco certifications. We will continue to provide our clients with world-class solutions, such as Cisco HCS (Hosted Collaboration Solution), and the professional services and expertise necessary to make every UCaaS implementation a successful endeavor.”
As a certified Cisco Cloud Provider, West IP Communications is a member of the Cloud Partner Program. West IP Communications can now operate a unique Cisco-powered cloud for assisting Cisco HCS.
