Varaha Now Interoperable with Cisco's Unified Communications Manager
November 12, 2008
Varaha Systems Inc., a provider of enterprise fixed-mobile convergence solutions, reportedly has joined the Cisco Systems Inc.’s Technology Developer Program and has announced its successfully completion of interoperability testing with Cisco Unified Communications Manager.
Headquartered in Dallas, Varaha says its solution is designed to provide high voice quality through its software architecture, network and enterprise-grade security, as well as mobile capabilities to small and medium-sized businesses.
Cisco Technology Developer Program will enable Varaha’s customers to deploy a broad range of Cisco compatible business applications that can enhance the capabilities, performance, and management through Cisco network.
Here’s how Varaha officials diagram their company’s flagship offering, “uMobility,” which allows users to answer their office phone through cellular devices:
Cisco officials say that they ensure members of their Technology Developer Program enhance and unite the comprehensive Cisco technology portfolio with products that feature verified interoperability. The program includes companies that hold a market leadership position, use Cisco technology, and share Cisco’s strong commitment to customer service.
The program unites Cisco with third-party developers of hardware and software to deliver tested interoperable solutions to joint customers. Members of the program share Cisco’s strong commitment to customer satisfaction and are required to undergo interoperability testing based on criteria set forth by Cisco.
Cisco has other programs to help small and mid size businesses. Its Partner Solution Catalog provides details for solutions, services, systems, support and network technology that can drive any business forward.
Earlier this year, as unified communications reported, Cisco established a Small Business Council to align its small-business and go-to-market strategies across all functions globally. The council aims to ensure that small business customers and channel partners can access the most comprehensive and innovative range of technology solutions available in the communications industry.
The Small Business Council is managed by three Cisco veterans: Sue Bostrom, chief marketing officer and executive vice president; Keith Goodwin, senior vice president of Worldwide Channels; and Ian Pennell, senior vice president of the Small Business Technology Group
