Cisco and Tandberg’s Commitment to Partners

- October 2, 2009 - 9 Comments

Cisco’s intent to acquire Norway-based video conferencing company Tandberg (announced today) will help expand collaboration solutions to reach a broader set of customers, extending TelePresence from the board room to the desktop.

It’s no secret that channel partners are critical to both Tandberg and Cisco’s success in bringing these solutions to the masses. In the video below, John Chambers — Cisco’s Chaiman and CEO — and Tandberg CEO Fredrik Halvorsen discuss the importance of partnering as the two companies join forces.

Following the close of the acquisition, both companies will work together to create an integrated channel program, giving qualified channel partners the ability to sell both Cisco and Tandberg joint offerings.
