Bell Canada and Cisco Systems Canada Co. today announced they are partnering to accelerate a number of IP-based managed services to Canadian businesses, including voice, wireless, IP contact centre and security.

“As the transition to IP continues to escalate, businesses are finding it challenging to keep pace with the increasingly complex infrastructure management demands,” said Stephane Boisvert, President, Enterprise Group, Bell Canada.

“Businesses are looking to drive the most effective ROI from their IP network investments.”

The initiatives also include the creation of two Knowledge Centres in Montreal and Toronto.

The centres, which are scheduled to open in the second and third quarters of this year, will enable both companies to collaborate more effectively in training and specialist certification and provide an environment to encourage recruitment.
