The networking vendor partners with Wipro for managed services.

Cisco Systems and Wipro on Oct. 31 will launch a strategic initiative to combine Cisco's networking technology with Wipro's IT outsourcing and managed services.

Together the two companies will develop integrated services based on Cisco technology aimed initially at customers in Africa and the Middle East, although that will expand later to include Europe, according to Srini Srinivasan, director of strategic alliances for Cisco in San Jose, Calif.

"Wipro is one of the largest IT companies in India. It is very strong in applications and managed services. As we go from products and technologies to solutions, increasing the customer relevance of our products, Wipro fits in very nicely," he said.

As a part of the alliance, Cisco and Wipro will open a Cisco Solution Center at Wipro's campus in Bangalore, India. The center will be used to demonstrate jointly developed solutions based on advanced Cisco networking technology. Wipro pledged to develop competencies in Cisco products through the Solution Center and Cisco will be Wipro's preferred networking supplier for Wipro's outsourcing, managed-services and other offerings.
