Emirates Computers has announced that it has qualified as a Cisco TelePresence Authorized Technology Provider (ATP).

The new qualification has been introduced for Cisco partners who want to provide Cisco TelePresence, a high-end conferencing solution that includes audio and IP communication elements, to their customers.

A basic pair of TelePresence 3000 suites cost around $500,000, and the end user also requires Cisco IP telephony, leased or dedicated line level bandwidth, and a full network audit and site survey to assess elements such as acoustics, room design and so on. The ATP certification has been developed to ensure that partners are able to deliver these services and maintain the high standard of deployment that are required to get the best effect from the Telepresence suite.

Dani Diab, vice president and general manager of Emirates Computers Abu Dhabi said: "We are happy that Cisco chose us to be a TelePresence Authorized Technology Provider. Cisco has constantly been innovating to offer customers the latest and best technology. Our team is dedicated and committed to providing the best service, support and technical expertise in promoting Cisco TelePresence in this region."

"Cisco TelePresence is an innovative, new application that changes the entire realm of communications and collaboration," said Richard McLeod, director of unified communciations for worldwide channels at Cisco. "Our TelePresence ATP partners, such as Emirates Computers, will help Cisco drive the technology across the chasm by delivering the sales, technical and lifecycle services capabilities customers need to successfully deploy the entire solution."
