Cisco Systems is the largest strategic technology partner of ATM S.A. Cooperation of the companies evolves dynamically.
In 2006, ATM revenues from sales of Cisco technology based products and solutions exceeded PLN 29 million, which is a 20% increase compared to the previous year.
Most of the last year's turnover (nearly 65 per cent) comes from the ICT sector. This complies with the tendency noticed by Cisco, according to which the largest increase in last year’s revenues (approx. 43 per cent) has been seen on emerging markets and in the operator sector, which is the most important for Cisco. The sector also has a strategic value to ATM, as the company being a next-generation ICT provider understands the market requirements. This unique synergy brings measurable results and allows to create a consistent market strategy in cooperation with Cisco.
ATM develops its own products based on Cisco technologies which are still introduced to market. One of the examples is the SMaCS (Service Management and Charging System) — an IP network value-added services management system (for services such as accounting use of digital content, including video on demand). There already are several examples of successful deployments of the system. Cooperation of both companies in the field of TV signal distribution and video on-demand is also of importance. It aims for use of technologies acquired by Cisco along with their producers. The largest company acquired by Cisco in 2006 was Scientific Atlanta which specializes in digital TV technologies.
ATM and Cisco both speak for expanding their cooperation abroad. ATM plans to increase its sales of Cisco technology based solutions in 2007 by half, to the level of PLN 40 million.
