AVI-SPL Announces Availability of Cisco Inter-operability Services

AVI-SPL is pleased to announce the expansion of its managed conferencing offering to include Cisco inter-operability services. The platform is designed to help customers who wish to perform video calls between Cisco’s line of telepresence products and non-Cisco telepresence and video conferencing systems.

“Inter-operability is one of the key challenges facing customers who have migrated to the new Cisco platform,” said Mike Brandofino, AVI-SPL’s executive vice president of video communications and unified collaboration. “We recognize that customers want the freedom to select different vendors, without losing the benefit from prior investments made in video communications equipment. AVI-SPL’s new inter-operability services will help our customers gain the maximum return on investment for their video communications equipment, regardless of the manufacturer.”

AVI-SPL’s interoperabilty solutions are provided either as a pay-for-use service or a professional services engagement. The pay-for-use service is a “white glove” offering that is part of AVI-SPL’s managed video service, ConferencePoint£. The professional service engagement is geared towards customers who wish to have the infrastructure to support Cisco inter-operability in their enterprise networks. Experienced AVI-SPL engineers can design and implement a customized solution, tailored to fit each customer’s unique requirements.

“We have a unique blend of experienced Cisco engineers and video communications experts within our systems integration team, enabling us to provide quality solutions to our customers complex communications needs,” said Chris Bianchet, AVI-SPL’s senior vice president of sales and service – systems integration. “Our primary goal has always been to equip our customers with effective, collaborative solutions.
