West IP Communications has joined Cisco's Cloud Partner Program and now operates its own Cisco-powered cloud.
West IP Communications, which sells through channel partners, said this week it has earned Cisco's Gold Partner and Cloud Provider certifications. The Gold Partner designation is Cisco's highest VAR recognition. West IP Communications now delivers advanced unified communications-as-a-service applications, it said.
West IP Communications already had been a Cisco Managed Services Channel Program Master Partner for more than three years, making it one of about two dozen providers in the United States to hold all three certifications.
