Zdi Achieves Elite Status with Cisco

Premier integrator Zdi has recently achieved an impressive designation with international powerhouse Cisco. Zdi is the second integrator in the States and third worldwide to receive the Cisco Preferred Solutions Developer status in the Cisco Developer Network (CDN).

CDN is where third-party developers gain access to Cisco technologies and support resources to craft compelling business solutions for unifying data, voice, video, and mobile communications on Cisco development platforms.

Preferred Solutions Developers must meet strict requirements, including channel readiness, dedicated business development resources, 24 x 7 support, and industry certifications (CTS-D, CTS-I, AQAV). With this status, Zdi works with Cisco to deliver enhanced solutions, including Zdi’s Project Workplace Development (PWD) integrated room solution that was recently certified as Cisco Compatible. Zdi’s lead engineer Jay McArdle says, “We are truly honored and excited about our continuing relationship with Cisco. We see this as the next step in differentiating Zdi from the rest of the market, while also forming more relationships in the IT space.”

Zdi Is First in the World to Receive Cisco Compatible Designation

Premier integrator Zdi has received special status from international powerhouse Cisco for its Project Workplace Development (PWD) integrated room solution. Zdi is the first company in the world to get an integrated room solution certified as Cisco Compatible.

Zdi lead engineer Jay McArdle says, “This has been a taxing but fulfilling process. We are excited to be the first certified room solution and hope many more of our designs earn this designation.”

Cisco’s PWD solution comes to life using owner-furnished (OFE) Cisco equipment in conjunction with Zdi-provided room equipment, installation, configuration, and commissioning. These rooms remedy the marketplace gap for a simple and consistent communications experience.
