Vertical requires a combination of skills, including data and telephony networking and convergence technologies, to support its convergence solutions. CTP certification is designed to support vendor-neutral convergence skills, and to offer data and telephony networking and convergence technologies in a single certification. Vertical highly recommends CTP certification to prepare for technical training on the Vertical Wave IP 2500, Xcelerator IP, TeleniumIP, DX-80, InstantOffice, FX-II, MP5000, and TeleVantage product lines.
Vertical also recommends the introductory CCNT certification for partner technical sales and first-level support staff.
"Convergence skills are essential, and an industry wide standard such as the CTP certification validates the skills necessary to support our customers effectively. This partnership assists our Solutions Providers in leading the industry with both the best products and the most knowledgeable support teams in the market."
