Savvis' Multi Protocol Label Switching (MPLS) Application Transport
Services (ATS) underwent a rigorous third-party assessment conducted by
Cisco, earning designations for Managed TelePresence(TM) Network Connection,
Managed MPLS-VPN, Managed Firewall and Managed IDS/IPS Services.
"Being designated as Cisco Powered is an honor that recognizes Savvis for
our ongoing investment in the tools and processes necessary to provide
high-quality network-based managed services," said Dennis Brouwer, vice
president, global network solutions at Savvis.
"The Managed TelePresence(TM) Network Connection designation is a
particularly impressive honor, since it's only granted to global private
networks that can provide significant value to enterprises that use video
conferencing services," Brouwer said. "Being able to communicate via video
provides real value and cost savings to companies, especially as they monitor
travel expenses and increase their focus on employee productivity."
The Cisco Powered designations not only acknowledge that a managed
service provider has invested in industry-leading Cisco solutions, but also
provide access to Cisco resources that can be used to envision, build, market
and sell managed services.
