|Contemporary Computer Services Inc. (CCSI) Recognized by Cisco as a Video
Surveillance Authorized Technology Provider USA
Bohemia, NY - August 13, 2009 - Contemporary Computer Services Inc.(CCSI) announced today that it has achieved Video Surveillance Authorized Technology Provider (ATP) status from Cisco. This designation recognizes CCSI as having fulfilled the training requirements and program prerequisites to design, resell, install and maintain a full range of video surveillance and access-control solutions.
Cisco® physical-security solutions provide network-centric capabilities to video surveillance, Internet Protocol (IP) cameras, electronic access control and other groundbreaking technologies by converging voice, data and physical security into a single appliance. This enables customers to preserve existing investments in analog-based technology and to use the network as a platform upon which more collaborative and integrated physical-security systems can be built. As customers converge physical-security infrastructures and operations and begin using the network as a platform, they gain rapid access to relevant information and increase interoperability with other IP-centric systems. This enables higher levels of situational awareness in environments where intelligent and timely decision making is crucial.
"We are pleased to add the Cisco ATP partner status to our list of CISCO credentials, " said CCSI's President and CEO, John Riconda. "We are committed to helping our customers improve safety and security by leveraging innovative technologies that reduce costs, improve productivity, and optimize business performance.
"As we move into new markets and emerging technologies, the Cisco Authorized Technology Provider Partners are instrumental in helping our customers turn innovative technology into a competitive advantage," said Steve Benvenuto, director of emerging technologies for worldwide channels at Cisco. "As a Cisco Video Surveillance ATP Partner, CCSI brings a unique set of skills to potential customers, combining a proven physical-security track record with Cisco expertise."
To qualify for the Video Surveillance ATP Program, CCSI had to meet a number of requirements, from having staff who fulfill specific job responsibilities to achieving the Cisco Express Foundation Specialization. Those requirements are designed to help a partner maintain high levels of customer satisfaction.
