Tech Data awarded Cisco wireless specialisation certification
Tech Data has been appointed as Cisco’s first certified Value Added Distributor for wireless networking in the region
Tech Data has been appointed as Cisco’s first certified VAD for wireless networking in the region. The distributor was awarded “Wireless Specialisation” certification in recognition of its technical ability in wireless LAN, a major growth area in networking.
“We congratulate Tech Data for being always the leader in supporting our solutions and initiatives,” said Jon Saunders, regional sales manager for unified channels, Cisco Middle East. “Together, we aim at growing Cisco’s networking business in the region, by providing skills within the entire channel, capable enough to offer end-users the best consultancy, implementation and support.”
The wireless specialisation certification, part of Cisco’s programme to increase channel expertise introduced last year, focuses on wireless deployment for SMB markets, using products such as the Cisco Aironet range.
“Our aim is to build a strong team here at Tech Data, who, in its turn, is capable of transferring the same technical skills at the reseller level,” said Pradeep Angeveetil, Cisco business unit manager at Tech Data.
