Roundup: Cisco, F5 Networks, SAP, Infor/IBM

Tuesday, August 9, 2011

Argentina's Buenos Aires provincial judiciary system has chosen Cisco's (Nasdaq: CSCO) TelePresence solution to streamline the statements of experts in criminal processes, Cisco said in a statement.

"Due to the size of the province, experts have to travel long distances, and in some cases, processes are delayed for that reason. With this new technology we save valuable time and money spent in commuting," said Alberto Spezzi, IT department head at the Buenos Aires supreme court.

The implementation - with the support of Cisco's Gold Partner Logicalis - included a network with 18 Cisco TelePresence Endpoint Edge 95 MXPs running on the judiciary's telephone and data network.
