Telemerge Achieves TelePresence as a Service (TPaaS) Certification from Cisco

Cloud-Based "All-in-One" Video Conferencing Solution Now Available to Canadian Customers

MARKHAM, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - Aug. 7, 2013) - Telemerge Canada Inc. today announced that the company has achieved the designation of Cisco Cloud and Managed Services Advanced Partner worldwide for its cloud-based video conferencing services. This also makes Telemerge the first Canadian company to be certified under Cisco's TelePresence as a Service certification program.

Via connection to Telemerge's Video Collaboration Exchange™ (VCE) platform, which supports multipoint video conferencing, protocol interworking, and helpdesk support services in the cloud, organizations can now benefit from the easy-to-use and cost effective TPaaS model. TPaaS enables businesses to embrace subscription-based video conferencing without the requirement for upfront capital investment in the video infrastructure technology. Telemerge's "All-in-One" Video Collaboration services have made video conferencing easy to adopt for businesses of all sizes by removing some of the primary adoption barriers including: complexity, poor user experience and poor network quality.

"To achieve the Cisco Powered TelePresence as a Service designation, a service provider must comply with an extensive set of requirements and must pass an audit conducted by a third party, independent auditor," says Roy Purtil, vice president, Cloud Business Development, Cisco Canada. "We are proud that Telemerge has achieved our certification criteria and are confident that they will continue to drive video adoption in Canada."

Cisco Powered services allow customers to connect with confidence to achieve faster time to value, by minimizing technology lifecycle complexity to reduce cost and risk. Customers also experience assured performance through superior service, security, and 24/7 support from Telemerge and Cisco.

"The certification from Cisco further strengthens our TPaaS offering and being part of the Cisco cloud provider program will continue to build our footprint in the Canadian marketplace," says Simon Doo, president and CEO, Telemerge. "With over ten years of experience in video conferencing, Telemerge is driven to make it cost effective and simple by delivering flexible, scalable telepresence solutions to businesses of all sizes."
