CAMARILLO, Calif., June 29, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Providea Conferencing, LLC, a leading provider of Videoconferencing and Telepresence-Centric Managed Services Solutions, announced today that it has achieved TelePresence Video Master Authorized Technology Provider (ATP) status from Cisco. This designation recognizes Providea Conferencing as having fulfilled the training requirements and program prerequisites to sell, deploy and support Cisco TelePresence Video products and solutions at the Master level.

The Cisco TelePresence Video Master ATP Program is focused on providing a new way of working in which everyone, everywhere can be more productive through face-to-face collaboration with Cisco TelePresence Video solutions. A Cisco TelePresence Video Master ATP Partner has the greatest depth of knowledge and skill in deploying the entire Cisco video endpoint portfolio, which comprises single- and triple-screen Cisco TelePresence units, custom TelePresence suites, and infrastructure solutions. Cisco TelePresence Video Master ATP Partners possess deep networking and advanced Cisco Unified Communications capabilities, regional to global coverage, and a strong and mature services practice.

"The Providea team has been exclusively focused since our formation in 1999 on supporting the needs of organizations around the globe with all of their videoconferencing and telepresence initiatives. We take pride in our ability to deliver unique services and expertise based on best practices for successful video deployment.  Achieving this important designation from Cisco continues to demonstrate our commitment to leadership in this market while enabling us to support our customers in the manner they have come to depend upon from Providea," said Todd Luttinger, President and CEO of Providea Conferencing.

"The Cisco TelePresence Video Master ATP Program is designed to enable partners to take advantage of the tremendous market opportunities ahead--not only in the telepresence space but also in the overall collaboration market," said Richard McLeod, senior director of collaboration for worldwide channels at Cisco. "As a Cisco TelePresence Video Master ATP Partner, Providea Conferencing has made an investment in the sales, technical and life cycle services capabilities needed to deliver the industry's most comprehensive and interoperable Cisco TelePresence Video portfolio."  

The Cisco Authorized Technology Provider (ATP) Program is part of the Cisco go-to-market strategy for emerging technologies. The program helps Cisco to define the knowledge, skills and services that channel partners need to successfully sell, deploy and support an emerging technology. As the market changes, an ATP designation may be discontinued or may evolve into a Cisco specialization.
