East Hartford, CT, May 8, 2015 – Total Communications, Incorporated, a regional leader in business IT and communication technology, is now an authorized reseller of Cisco products and Cisco branded services under the NASPO ValuePoint (formerly WSCA-NASPO) Data Communications Products and Service Master Agreement with the State of Connecticut. This agreement is a cooperative purchasing vehicle that provides discounts for public sector customers. The agreement streamlines purchasing for state agencies, state colleges, municipalities and public education, who can take advantage of contract discounts without issuing a formal bid.
Total Communications has been approved by Cisco Systems and the State of Connecticut as a subcontractor under Cisco’s Prime Contract. The following Cisco products and services are available under this agreement:
- Unified Communications
- Switching and Routing
- Storage Networking
- Network Optimization and Acceleration
- Data Center Application Services
- Networking Software
As a highly qualified vendor with a strong local presence, Total was invited to apply to be a subcontractor on Cisco’s Connecticut contract. Based on Total’s significant public sector experience, particularly in Unified Communications, their application was approved. The company was also subject to review by the State of Connecticut.
According to Total Communications CEO Richard Lennon, “We are thrilled to be able to offer public sector customers in Connecticut the option of working with us under the Cisco NASPO ValuePoint Master Agreement. Today, public sector agencies are challenged to “do more with less” while practicing transparency in their purchasing policies. Buying through this contract addresses those challenges.”
