Cisco inks Boeing VoIP deal
Cisco is set to announce one of its largest Internet telephony contracts to date.
On Tuesday, the company will announce that Boeing has selected Cisco to be its main supplier of Internet Protocol telephony gear, as the airplane manufacturer migrates from a traditional telephone network.
The entire project will take roughly five to seven years from start to finish, said Mike Terrill, program manager for network convergence at Boeing. The company, which is one of the world’s largest makers of commercial jetliners, military aircraft and equipment for the United States space program, has more than 150,000 employees in 48 states and 70 countries.
