This designation recognizes Industrial Audio/Video Inc. as having fulfilled the training requirements and program prerequisites to sell, deploy and support Cisco TelePresence Video products and solutions at the Express level.
The Cisco TelePresence Video Express ATP Program is focused on providing a new way of working, in which everyone, everywhere can be more productive through face-to-face collaboration with TelePresence Video solutions.
