Power-over-Ethernet (PoE) specialist PowerDsine has been granted membership in the Cisco Developer Program. Program membership is reserved for companies offering complementary and compatible solutions that hold a market leadership position in their respective market sector. It offers customers and resellers the reassurance of timely resolution to support enquiries involving both companies’ solutions.
PowerDsine designs, develops and supplies integrated circuits, modules and systems that enable the implementation of PoE in local area networks. Among its product offerings are IEEE 802.3af-compliant PoE midspan solutions. PowerDsine joined the Cisco Technology Developer Partner Program as a Cisco Compatible Wireless Partner in April 2005. Membership of the program is conferred on companies that demonstrate a strong commitment to customer service, satisfaction and whose products have successfully completed rigorous interoperability testing in the Cisco labs.
Through participation in the Cisco Technology Developer Program, PowerDsine’s PoE Midspan and Splitter solutions support Cisco Aironet 1100, 1200, 1300 and 350 wireless access points, providing enterprise customers with a comprehensive PoE solution for deploying wireless LAN applications.
According to Igal Rotem, PowerDsine CEO, “Membership of this program is extremely important for both resellers and customers of Cisco and PowerDsine. It will provide direct access to each company’s technical-support facilities and allow us to offer shared customers the highest levels of support and service.”
