Engineers at Alphanumeric Systems, an information technology services firm with operations across the Carolinas, have received national technical specialization recognition from Cisco Systems.

The specializations are for both wireless local area network and Internet Protocol communications. The IP designation applies to designing, installing and supporting solutions for mid-size businesses with an emphasis on autonomous branch office operations.

Alphanumeric’s sales staff was also recognized for “sales expert” certifications in both areas.

“We’ve aggressively pursued a more comprehensive partnership with Cisco based on the sophistication of their products and the success we’ve had fully integrating them into our core solution offerings to meet specific customer needs,” said Tim Finnegan, director of strategic services for Alphanumeric. “Cisco Systems has been long recognized as the worldwide leader in advanced networking technologies, and the achievement of these specializations demonstrates that Alphanumeric Systems is uniquely qualified to help our customers improve their business agility through the application of wireless mobility solutions and converged networks.”
