avsnet awarded Cisco Internet of Things specialisation27 October 2015
avsnet has received Cisco’s Advanced Internet of Things (IoT) Connected Safety and Security specialisation. The certification is awarded to experienced partners that have proven their ability to provide value-added IoT solutions through their sales capabilities, technical experience and broad service offering.
Graham Fry, MD at avsnet (pictured) commented: “The IoT is much more than corporate vernacular, it is a tangible collection of technologies, sensor networks, applications and business processes that is helping to improve organisational efficiency across every industry. Its future potential is even more exciting for our customers; however, some are unsure how the IoT will apply specifically to their organisations. This is why they are looking to us to simplify the IoT and to devise new technology strategies centred around their business objectives. Furthermore, our knowledge of the corporate network means we can assist organisations in maximising the ROI they receive from their IoT and wider collaboration investments.”
As one of only two providers in the UK to earn the certification, avsnet occupies a strong position in Cisco’s elite partner community and supported by avsnet’s Master Collboration specialisation is positioned to help drive the advancement of Cisco IoT solutions.
To earn this latest certification, avsnet undertook a series of demanding review and audit processes, including a comprehensive evaluation programme assessing the company’s sales department, engineering expertise, support and maintenance practices and customer management team.
Nicholas Edmond, Internet of Everything BDM UKI at Cisco said: “We’re pleased to announce avsnet’s specialisation. The company remains committed to providing its customers with the solutions, deployment strategies and support initiatives they need to remain at the forefront of their respective industries. The IoT will become a crucial tool for businesses of every sector and avsnet has demonstrated it has the highest level of industry understanding, technical experience and dedication to its customers to help drive the IoT forward.”
