Partner Voices: Be a Leading Player and Tell your customer story

January 7, 2015 at 8:19 am PST

The most powerful marketing content is an inspired success story. In my recent blog, I told you how our Master Specialized partners are solving customers’ key business problems.  I want to share another incredible story of how a Cisco partner, Core BTS, created a powerful solution for their customer.

A technology foundation for the future

The banking industry has a reputation for speaking conservatively. So, when a bank president describes working with a Cisco partner as “remarkable,” it speaks volumes about the partner and their capabilities.

Core BTS, a Master Specialized partner, was chosen by North Country Savings Bank to help transform the 100-year old bank’s services. They needed a video solution to connect their customers to their offsite service representatives. The bank wanted to improve collaboration and training across offices. And decrease travel time and cost.

The bank described the new wireless, voice, and video solution as the “technology foundation that will carry us into the future.”

Up your game with the Cisco Partner Ecosystem

As a Master specialized partner, customers will expect to have deep, far-ranging conversations with you. Become a part of the Cisco Partner Ecosystem and find the capabilities your customers need, all within the safety of Cisco-validated partnerships. Give your customers more value and solve even more complex problems. Read More »

In the go-go-go marketplace that is pay television, one of the most important raw ingredients for success is the ability to rapidly respond to competitive interlopers of all stripes — online and over-the-top, in addition to the “known” / traditional video purveyors. This is particularly true for satellite video providers. Their ability to quickly upgrade the installed base of consumer premise equipment (CPE), and all the associated services, is somewhat trickier than their competitors, for many reason reasons.

Most of the installed base of boxes lacks a two-way or “return” channel, and where there is one, it doesn’t necessarily operate in a “managed” environment. Meaning the satellite provider doesn’t control it, and there is no guarantee of connectivity.

So how can satellite-based service providers efficiently build Read More »

What’s In Store for Satellite Video Purveyors at CES?

Amid the technological sizzle at this week’s Consumer Electronics Show is a special line of equipment and services, developed entirely for satellite video providers. And, as you might expect, it’s a solution set being heavily fortified by the cloud.

That’s why a strong undercurrent this week in Las Vegas (and in our suite, at the Wynn), are the innovations that can infuse satellite video providers with agility. Innovations in content, user experience, and services, specifically.

In our suite, at the Wynn, we’ll have on hand everything Read More »

We Have Moved! Join Us on the Collaboration Blog for Video Updates

This is not goodbye!

Video Collaboration is a big deal at Cisco, as you can probably tell from some of our recent announcements about the Cisco TelePresence IX5000 and the first non-transcoded video call between a WebRTC application and an existing video endpoint. We’re constantly working to make video easier for you to use and as collaborative as possible. In our quest to put users first, video at Cisco has become integrated with, and synonymous to Collaboration at Cisco. We want you to have a seamless collaboration experience, regardless of device or location.

So what am I getting at with all this? We’re archiving the Video blog as part of this effort for a holistic, seamless collaboration experience. Join us over on the Collaboration blog, where you can continue to get updates on what is going on with Video Collaboration in the industry and at Cisco.
