Cisco logoBracknell, August 10, 2009 — Redwood Technologies has been confirmed as an Affiliate member of the Cisco Technology Developer Program (CTDP). The program ensures that members’ products and technologies have verified interoperability with Cisco platforms, follow strict design and manufacturing standards, and offer exciting new capabilities for Cisco joint customers.

It is a crucial stage in the evolution of Redwood solutions, in that membership of the program confirms the compatibility and integrity of the Redwood platform wherever it interfaces with a Cisco environment.

Leadership

A key qualifying requirement of the CTDP is that members should hold leadership positions in their particular market segments. Members’ products should showcase the innovations made possible through collaboration with Cisco.

Cisco and program members work together to ensure that customers receive consistent levels of service and support for interoperable applications. Both groups have direct access to each organisation’s technical support facilities, to provide timely and satisfactory call resolution.

Redwood’s affiliate status means that service providers, carriers and corporate customers operating Cisco-based infrastructures can be confident that deploying Redwood solutions within their networks will complement and enhance the capabilities of their networks. As a Cisco Technology Developer Affiliate, Redwood has demonstrated its ability to develop applications and services that can add value to a Cisco platform, giving Redwood customers new opportunities to introduce competitive and differentiating offerings.

Strong foundation

Membership of CTDP allows Redwood customers to install new Redwood products with verified interoperability, and make the most of their investments in Cisco network infrastructure. It also means that they have more choice in the range and scope of the applications they want to deploy, and that they will be able to do more with those applications.

"This is an important step for Redwood," says Ron Perry, Technical Director of Redwood Technologies. "It formalises and endorses the long and highly successful working relationship we enjoy with Cisco, and establishes a strong foundation for future developments."
