The SPVTG solutions portfolio encompasses an array of Cisco networking solutions and all the products the vendor acquired when it purchased Scientific Atlanta in 2006. In the United States, Cisco channel partners participating in Cisco’s Authorized Service Provider Video Program – including Internet Service Providers (ISPs), certain cable operators and IT resellers capitalizing on the rising demand for video communications – will now purchase these products through Tech Data’s Cisco Solutions Group.
“Accommodating the explosive growth of video – be it HDTV, HD videoconferencing or the distribution of video content through online services like YouTube and Netflix – will be the driving force behind network design for years to come,” said Tech Data Vice President, Cisco Solutions Group, Chuck Bartlett. “More and more network capacity will be dedicated to providing access to video via residential cable and Internet services, corporate networks and everywhere else through smartphones and other mobile devices. That trend is only going to continue, and it will change how resellers and ISPs alike design, deploy and manage everything from on-site networking installations to the cross-country infrastructure they connect to.”
“The SPVTG solutions portfolio combines Cisco’s unmatched networking technologies with our industry-leading video networking solutions,” said Larry Reist, director of business development, Service Provider Worldwide Channels, Cisco. “These solutions enable our partners to build the next-generation networks that will deliver video services efficiently and effectively via a single IP-based network, eliminating the need for multiple networks supporting each type of communication.”
Tech Data will distribute the complete line of SPVTG solutions, including IP-based networking solutions and analog products for customers responsible for the maintenance of existing video distribution networks.
