Company positioned among an elite group of partners worldwide

Dubai, United Arab Emirates, January 12, 2009: Dimension Data, the $4.5 billion IT solutions and services provider announced today it has been awarded TelePresence Global Authorized Technology Provider (ATP) status from Cisco.

“The Cisco TelePresence high-definition videoconferencing system is an excellent tool that enables enterprises to collaborate and interact as if they were in the same room. Apart from reducing travel costs and employee down time, Cisco TelePresence improves business agility,” he says and points out that there’s been enormous uptake for the solution – particularly among global organizations wanting to improve employee interactions.”

“We are excited that Cisco awarded us this prestigious certification. We are sure our customers will be happy with our ability to provide the best technical support, service and expertise in installing Cisco TelePresence,” says Siddeek Rahim, Managing Director, Dimension Data Gulf Region.
