- Distributor Brings Cisco-Dedicated Unified Communications Solutions to Healthcare, Education and Government Resellers
TARRYTOWN, New York, June 3, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Westcon Group, a value-added distributor of category-leading unified communications, network infrastructure, data center and security solutions with a global network of specialty resellers, today announced the company's Comstor business practice is extending its commitment to telepresence in a new agreement with Avizia, Inc. The company's Cisco-focused vertical telepresence products – including those for the healthcare, education and government marketplaces – are now being made available to Comstor reseller partners globally.
Avizia is revolutionizing collaboration with easy-to-use and seamlessly integrated technology. Avizia's products include four solutions previously Cisco-branded: the CA700 (formerly the Clinical Assistant), Tactical, Synch and the MX200/300 Extended Height Cart. Avizia also recently launched two new products, the MC600 – letting users control conference rooms from their tablets -- and the CA300, which is a value-priced telemedicine cart.
"Our mission for the market is clear – improve lives by adapting video technology to expand access, accelerate efficiency, and increase the reach of providers in healthcare, education and government sectors. We believe the same video conferencing technology that helps businesses succeed can also be used to improve the quality of experience in our key markets," said Mike Baird, CEO, Avizia. "With a rich history in video technology – along with an unmatched track-record with Cisco – Comstor is the perfect fit to build our market presence."
For more than 25 years, Comstor has helped reseller partners worldwide accelerate their businesses leveraging Cisco solutions across a range of networking, collaboration and data center technologies. Today's agreement is the next stage in this dedicated partnership – made increasingly powerful by the depth and breadth of experience Comstor holds in Cisco technology.
"Comstor has established a uniquely dedicated global sales and services team of telepresence experts, ensuring partners can recognize significant revenue based on Cisco's market-leading technology. The addition of Avizia to our portfolio allows partners to grow their vertical businesses based on technology specifically designed for the education and healthcare sectors," said Dolph Westerbos, Chief Executive Officer, Westcon Group. "We're pleased to be expanding our Unified Communications portfolio with Cisco eco-system partner technology that fully demonstrates the power of video."
