Cisco STI Partnership
The ICT Division development has strengthened its capabilities in the area of operational and cybersecurity and for stationary – fixed and mobile – operational networks. As cyber defense and security are key capabilities of the military and the public safety and security segment, the division required a product portfolio to reflect this. In 2019, the division took a major step toward this with the Cisco Solution Technology Integrator partnership acquisition, which allows OPTOKON to promote and to sell our ruggedized Cisco-based products into the global Cisco community.
In May 2020, OPTOKON signed a Solution Technology Integrator Agreement meaning that the company is entitled to 'design in' Cisco products and software into OPTOKON solutions. OPTOKON was the first Cisco partner in the Czech Republic.
OPTOKON is also a Select Certified Partner of Cisco with Express Specialization.
