UAE systems integrator Emircom has certified as a Cisco Silver Partner. The Abu Dhabi-based company reached Silver partner level, and has also qualified as an IP telephony specialist partner for Cisco.

In order to attain Silver partner status Emircom had to meet set levels of personnel expertise, support, specialisations and customer satisfaction. As a Silver level partner, the company will now be eligible to work with Cisco on joint sales and marketing campaigns and will have access to Cisco’s online partner resources for training and customer satisfaction tools.

“Emircom has met the personnel, support, specialisation and customer satisfaction requirements for achieving Silver certification and IP Telephony specialisation,” said Michel Sawaya, managing director at Emircom. “This certification will help us consolidate our existing business and form a platform for Emircom’s future expansion plans.”

Emircom is particularly focused on providing IP telephony solutions to enterprise level customers, through its expertise in consultation, design, implementation and support of converged networks. The company is also specialised in content networking, wireless LAN, network management and VPN security.

Jonathan Saunders, channel manager at Cisco explained that partners have to be independently audited to prove that they have met the requirements for Silver Partner status, to ensure that only the best channel partners can join the programme.

"The Silver certification level is designed to recognise and reward companies with credibility in the marketplace. Silver Certified Channel Partners have typically gained expertise in two specialisations and have achieved a measurable level of customer satisfaction," he said. "As a Silver Channel Partner, Emircom will also receive our support for joint sales and marketing efforts."

"We value the commitment and expertise that Emircom has demonstrated and look forward to a continued successful partnership," Saunders added.
