Prior to the April close of its acquisition by Cisco, TANDBERG named Providea "Partner of the Year" and "Top Growth Partner" at its 2010 Partner Summit in Las Vegas, NV.  "Providea continues to expand their portfolio of services in partnership with Cisco, showing once again that they are leading the way in delivering solutions to their customers that transform unified communications through telepresence," said Todd Meister, director, Cisco TelePresence Partner Sales, US & Canada.
