Meriplex Communications Wins Cisco Master Unified Communications Specialization in the US


September 28, 2011

Meriplex Communications, a provider of communication solutions for enterprise market, announced it achieved the Master Unified Communications Specialization from networking major Cisco.

For the coveted specialization, the enterprise communication solutions provider fulfilled the training requirements and program prerequisites to sell, deploy and support highly sophisticated applications-based Cisco Unified Communications solutions.

“As Meriplex continues towards a goal of technical excellence, acquiring the Master Unified Communications Specialization from Cisco is yet another milestone in this process,” David Henley, vice president of Meriplex, in a statement. “This rare certification assures our clients that Meriplex possesses the skills to effectively initiate large domestic and global IP Telephony deployments.

The Cisco certification is expected to encourage Meriplex to find new ways to enhance their service offerings, while, at the same time, raising the bar on industry standards.

“To help turn the promise of unified communications into a strategic advantage, customers are demanding an enhanced set of skills and capabilities from channel partners,” said Richard McLeod, director of unified communications for worldwide channels at Cisco. “Meriplex Communications’ investment in the Master Unified Communications Specialization ranks them among the industry’s elite.”

In order to achieve the Master Unified Communications Specialization, resale channel partners need to attain the Advanced Unified Communications Specialization. Partners also should meet stringent requirements including master-level sales, technical, and services capabilities.

Providing partners with the training to build sales, technical and Cisco Lifecycle Services skills, the Cisco Resale Channel Program also validates their skills through a third-party audit. Cisco resale partner certifications – Select, Premier, Silver and Gold – represent skills across technologies and a partner’s ability to deliver integrated networking solutions.

Recently, Meriplex Communications announced it has also achieved Cisco Gold Certification in the United States. The company has met rigorous standards set by Cisco in networking competency, service, support and customer satisfaction to earn the Gold Certification.
