Mumbai: Cisco Systems will launch its popular Cisco Powered Network (CPN) designation in India by January 2006. The company launched CPN in international markets in 1999.

The company has also signed up telephony majors Videsh Sanchar Nigam Ltd (VSNL) and Bharti Tele-Ventures as members and is to confer CPN designation for their Internet Protocol Virtual Private Networks (IP VPN) services.

The company's CPN is a designation of quality, performance and reliability of the services being offered. Over 350 service providers - including telecom majors AT&T, British Telecom and MCI - in 62 countries around the world, use CPN. However, the CPN programme cannot be termed as a certification.

Cisco is also looking at offering the programme to other Indian telecom players and is believed to have initiated talks with Reliance Infocomm and Bharat Sanchar Nigam Ltd (BSNL) among others.
