General Dynamics to adapt enabling technologies to make meeting and collaborating easier for government decision-makers

General Dynamics C4 Systems announced today that it has achieved TelePresence Authorized Technology Provider (ATP) status from Cisco. This designation recognizes General Dynamics as having fulfilled the training requirements and program prerequisites to sell, deploy and support Cisco TelePresence in the U.S. and internationally.

Cisco TelePresence Meeting is a revolutionary new category of products that create live, “face-to-face” meeting experiences over an Internet Protocol (IP) network. It combines the reach, intelligence and reliability of the network with the simplicity of a telephone interface to deliver an entirely new way for people to meet and collaborate. Cisco TelePresence Meeting is the first application of Cisco TelePresence technology.

“We believe Cisco’s TelePresence represents a ’game-changing’ way for our federal and civil agency customers to meet and collaborate over the Internet,“ said Chris Marzilli, president of General Dynamics C4 Systems. ”As a leading systems integrator for U.S. government agencies and the Department of Defense, we will be adding important enabling technologies, including Type 1 encryption; bandwidth management and quality of service applications; and advanced collaboration and visualization tools, for a turnkey, secure, IP-based communications solution that can reach to tactical environments"

Richard McLeod, director of united communications for worldwide channels at Cisco, said, “Cisco TelePresence changes the entire realm of communications and collaboration. As a Cisco TelePresence ATP partner, General Dynamics has made an investment in the sales, technical and lifecycle services capabilities that our customers need to help them successfully deploy complete solutions.”

The Cisco Authorized Technology Provider (ATP) Program is part of Cisco’s go-to-market strategy for emerging technologies. The program helps Cisco to define the knowledge, skills and services that channel partners need to successfully sell, deploy and support an emerging technology.
