IVT varies by technology. To learn more about IVT for a particular technology, please refer to the respective Developer Center.


This Solution Partner Program technology category utilizes lab test execution based on Cisco criteria as the method for validating interoperability. Once the program member has developed the integration and fully tested it in their own lab, they will submit an Interoperability Verification Request (IVT) via the Solution Partner Program partner Dashboard. The IVT will be scheduled with an authorized lab based on technology and lab availability. All testing with Cisco Unified Communications products is at cost to the program member. Preferred Solution Partners are required to test per the program guidelines. Solution Partners may participate in IVT to obtain a Compatibility Logo for this technology.
