Strategic Communications ranked #47 Cisco Federal Partner for Cisco’s Fiscal 2017

Louisville, KY – 1/18/2018: Strategic Communications, an IT service provider and Audio-Visual integrator, has been recognized and ranked #47 among 1000 Cisco Federal Partners for Cisco’s Fiscal 2017.  The ranking considers training, certifications and revenue targets as bases for merit. In 2016, Strategic Communications was certified as a Cisco Gold Partner and successfully renewed the certification last year.  The ranking is significant, as Cisco is one of the prominent companies in the technology industry and provides an array of solutions to the U.S. government.

“Achieving this ranking means a lot to us”, says Chris Mills, Director of Sales.  “We have been a Cisco Partner for a number of years.  Moving up in their Partner Program through training our staff, hiring competent and reliable employees and developing sales/marketing strategies to grow the business has certainly paid off.  Strategic continues to strive for excellence by investing in our employees and giving each employee a platform to succeed.  It translates directly into the quality of products and services we offer to our customers”.

Cisco Gold

Cisco Gold Partners provide broad expertise across enterprise networks, collaboration, data center, and IP next-generation networks.

The Cisco® Channel Partner Program provides a framework for partners to build the sales, technical and Cisco Lifecycle Services skills required to deliver Cisco solutions to end customers. Through the program’s specializations and certifications, Cisco recognizes a partner’s expertise in deploying solutions based on Cisco advanced technologies and services. Using a third-party audit process, the program validates a partner’s technology skills, business practices, customer satisfaction, presales and post-sales support capabilities, and other critical factors that customers consider when choosing a trusted partner.

As a Cisco Gold Certified Partner, Strategic Communications has met the requirements for attaining the broadest range of expertise across multiple technologies.  Strategic accomplished this through achieving Cisco advanced specializations in the four following areas: enterprise networks architecture, security architecture, collaboration architecture and data center architecture. In addition, Strategic Communications has integrated Cisco Hybrid IT, the resale of cloud and managed services, into its offerings and is required to ensure high customer satisfaction in collaboration with Cisco.
