This specialization recognizes ZyEdge as having fulfilled the training requirements and program prerequisites to sell, deploy and support comprehensive Cisco Unified Communications solutions.
“The renewal of our Cisco Advanced Unified Communications Specialization is proof of our ongoing commitment to deliver leading edge collaboration technologies for our customers,” said Ben Gerenstein, President/CEO of ZyEdge. “It signifies that we have received world-class training in Cisco Unified Communications solutions and that we can consistently deliver and effectively service every stage of a Unified Communications platform, from design through installation and configuration.

The Cisco Advanced Unified Communications Specialization is designed to help Cisco resale channel partners – whether small to medium-sized businesses or enterprise-scale organizations – meet a wide range of customer needs. It allows partners to focus on unified communications market opportunities that require advanced product knowledge and the ability to deploy solutions over multiple sites and geographies. Cisco Advanced Unified Communications Specialized Partners are specialists in building solutions based on the industry-leading Cisco Unified Communications portfolio. These products include Cisco Unified Communications Manager, Cisco Unity Connection, Cisco Unity voice messaging and unified messaging, and Cisco Unity Express, Cisco Unified Contact Center Express, Cisco Unified Videoconferencing and Cisco Unified MeetingPlace Express.
The Cisco Resale Channel Program provides partners with the training required to build sales, technical and Cisco Lifecycle Services skills, and then validates their skills through a third-party audit. Cisco resale partner certifications – Select, Premier, Silver and Gold – represent an increasing breadth of skills across key technologies and a partner’s ability to deliver integrated networking solutions. Cisco resale partner specializations – SMB, Express, Advanced and Master – reflect an increasing depth of sales, technical and service expertise in particular technologies.
