Denver, Colo. - June 16, 2008 - Global Technology Resources, Inc. (GTRI) announced today that it has received Cisco′s certification as the Authorized Technology Partner in the USA for Outdoor Wireless Mesh. To earn this status, GTRI had
to meet all requirements and criteria necessary to achieve the designation, including Cisco certified engineers and sales personnel technically trained to design and deploy wireless mesh.
This designation acts as an assurance that GTRI′s sales and support initiatives are better prepared to properly sell, design, install, and support the ATP program-specific technology and products across the US. It recognizes GTRI′s desire to develop expertise in the new world of complex networking technologies as well as an ongoing ability to provide outdoor wireless operation and support services.
″GTRI consistently evaluates new technologies that might fit our core strengths. We are a long standing Cisco wireless solutions house and the addition of the Cisco Wireless Mesh capabilities gives our customers an easily integrated solution. You won′t find a better solution, either technically or fiscally,″ commented Jim Raine, Director of Consulting Services at GTRI.
Cisco, the worldwide leader in networking, uses its ATP designation to recognize demonstrated leaders in emerging technologies. As a particular technology progresses along the adoption curve and becomes more standardized, it can evolve into a specialization. ATP offerings not only help define the necessary knowledge and skills to bring emerging technologies into market, but also provides a program to support the services required for a particular technology.
The Cisco Wireless Mesh Networking Solution offers ease of deployment, manageability, scalability, security, reliability, performance, lower cost of ownership, and mobility. This new technology solution enables organizations to deploy secure, high-bandwidth, scalable access to fixed and mobile applications across metropolitan areas; thus, extending existing wired networked services and applications beyond current physical infrastructure. This brings many benefits to different entities such as Municipalities interested in broadening Internet access in order to give field-based employees secure access to the information they need rather than requiring them to return to the office.
