Cisco partners can now offer standardized unified communication deployments from the cloud. By Admin

The North America Services Division of Ingram Micro Inc. has made its Hosted Collaboration Solution (HCS), powered by Cisco, available to qualified Cisco channel partners across the U.S. and Canada. The cloud solution has been in beta with select Ingram Micro channel partners for several months and is set to be demonstrated live at the distributor's 2013 Cloud Summit April 7 - 10 in Scottsdale, Ariz.

Featured on the Ingram Micro Cloud Marketplace, the new Ingram Micro HCS offering is an end-to-end system that allows partners to create subscription-based, as-a-service offerings around Cisco Collaboration technologies, including Cisco Unified Communications, Cisco Customer Collaboration, and Cisco WebEx. The offering also includes the full range of Cisco Collaboration functions along with the tools to deliver those functions to the end customer in an automated, standardized, and efficient manner, according to Ingram Micro.

The distributor is also taking advantage of the Cisco Advanced Services team to help its channel partners provision and deploy the solution, as well as offer 24/7 service management, monitoring, and Level 2 and Level 3 technical support.
