En Pointe Achieves Cisco Cloud Provider Certification With Cisco Powered Cloud Service Designation

Company Recognized for Expertise in Deploying and Managing Cisco Cloud Solutions

LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwire - Apr 12, 2012) - To support the expanding role of the network in deploying cloud services, En Pointe Technologies announced today it has achieved the Cisco Cloud Provider Certification with a Cisco Powered Cloud Hosted Collaboration System (HCS) Service designation. The Cisco Cloud Provider Certification recognizes En Pointe's investment in managing data centers to offer cloud services in a multi-customer environment. Additionally, as a Cisco Powered HCS Service designation, the En Pointe Collaboration Solution (ECS) offering is deployed using a Cisco validated infrastructure and HCS applications.

"The Cisco Powered Cloud Service designation illustrates En Pointe's vision of the cloud as a comprehensive service that mid-market and enterprise companies can use to their advantage. Our first cloud-based solution began with a Cisco backbone and we've since developed that service into the robust, cloud-based unified communications offering called ECS," said Dr. Shahzad Munawwar, COO and Head of Cloud Services. "This designation signifies our ability to combine Cisco solutions with our own services to create and deliver high-value cloud based offerings to our customers while meeting stringent requirements set by Cisco."

As a market leader and early adopter of Cisco's HCS technology, ECS incorporates up-to-date Cisco technology that provides cloud-based collaboration including:

  • Telephony
  • Mobility
  • Fax over IP
  • Call Center
  • Presence and Instant Messaging
  • Voice, Video and Web Conferencing

Benefits include:

  • An end-to-end solution
  • Reduced time-to-market
  • Reduced need for capital expenditure (CapEx) on new equipment
  • Flexible subscription model for "pay for use"
  • Predictable rate and monthly subscription
  • Reduced overall costs
  • A fully-managed, redundant communications infrastructure
  • An enterprise grade, scalable solution

Dr. Shahzad added, "The same comprehensive, single-sourced unified communications solution that we've always offered now has the distinction of being Cisco certified as a cloud offering; this brings all the benefits of an on premise solution without the maintenance and setup complexities. We've simplified what is normally a complicated network of individual communications networks into one, accessible, single-sourced, Cisco-backed solution."
