DataVox announced today that it has achieved the Advanced Routing and Switching Specialization from Cisco®. This specialization recognizes Cisco Gold Partner DataVox as having fulfilled the training requirements and program prerequisites to sell, deploy and support Cisco routing and switching solutions.
“This honor truly is a testament to the in-depth knowledge and commitment to excellence found within the DataVox team,” said Steve Ferguson, Vice President of DataVox. “I am proud to say that DataVox has not only met the requirements for Cisco’s Gold Partner status, we also hold Cisco Advanced Specializations in unified communications, wireless LAN, security, and now, routing and switching.”
“As a Cisco Advanced Routing and Switching Specialized Partner, DataVox’s investment in the training required to provide switching, routing, and Wide Area Application Services (WAAS) solutions ranks them among the industry’s most-qualified,” said John Growdon, director of marketing for worldwide channels at Cisco.
The Cisco Advanced Routing and Switching Specialization reflects the ability of partners to design and deploy advanced Internet Protocol (IP) networks built on the Cisco Catalyst switching portfolio; Cisco 1800, 2800, 3800 Integrated Services Router (ISR) platforms; and Cisco 7200/VXR and 7600 routers. Partners with this specialization are also experts in Cisco WAAS solutions, which provide optimization and application acceleration for wide-area networks, particularly for TCP-based applications.
The Cisco Resale Channel Program provides partners with the training required to build sales, technical and Cisco Lifecycle Services skills, and then validates their skills through a third-party audit. Achieving Cisco Advanced Routing and Switching Specialization also provides DataVox access to comprehensive sales, technical, and lifecycle services training and support available from Cisco.
