The service provider is not going into the market blind, however.

Potential business customers that are considering videoconferencing will take comfort in the fact that Enventis has become a Cisco (Nasdaq: CSCO) Gold Partner, having achieved the TelePresence Advanced Plus Authorized Technology Provider (ATP) status. This means the service provider can deploy and support Cisco TelePresence Video products and solutions at the Advanced Plus level.                

With its new telepresence solution in hand, the telco will offer a number of services, including assessments, system design, implementation, end user training and Total Care support.
