DSI Achieves Cisco Master Networking Specialization

Cisco Gold Certified Partner with Master Specializations

01/16/2019 Ashburn, VA: , a Cisco Gold Certified Partner, recently achieved the newest of Cisco’s specializations – Master Networking. This makes DSI only the second Cisco Channel Partner in the Americas to hold this specialization.

"As an early adopter of this technology, DSI recognizes the trend toward digital readiness and software defined networking. We are excited to bring this innovation to our customer base!"

Master Specializations are Cisco’s highest and most exclusive level of partner certification, attesting that DSI has made significant investments of time and resources to obtain expertise in the subject technologies and solutions. To receive the Cisco Master Networking Specialization, DSI passed a rigorous review of its architecture and solutions delivery capabilities that support Cisco’s intent-based networking solutions, as well as an audit of related business processes and results.

"DSI is constantly striving to be the best in our field, offering the highest level of solutions and services to our customers, with the certifications to back it up," said Chris Eubanks, Program & Partner Alliance Manager. "We are proud to add Master Networking to our growing list of specializations, and we are currently preparing for the process to add the Master of Data Center and Hybrid Cloud Specialization."

Cisco Renews DSI’s Gold Partner Status

Cisco Gold Partner

12/18/2018 Ashburn, VA: DSI is proud to announce the renewal of their Cisco Gold Partner certification, the highest certification level within the Cisco Channel Partner program and a certification DSI has held since 2013 (DSI has been a Cisco partner since 2001). DSI qualified for the renewal without an audit, meeting all requirements for maintaining the Gold Partner status including personnel, support, specializations, and Hybrid IT.

"DSI is honored to have our Cisco Gold Partner certification renewed," said Alan Bechara, Sr. Vice President of Sales & Marketing. "Being a Cisco Gold Partner means that we have been recognized for our ability to sell, install, and support Cisco solutions at the highest level. We are very proud of all our employees and our organization for this achievement, and we aim to continue exceeding expectations."

Cisco Gold Partners must have 12 uniquely certified full-time employees; DSI well exceeds that number, and many of them are Cisco Certified Internetwork Experts (CCIE). DSI is extremely proud of that fact because CCIE certification holders represent less than 3% of all certified Cisco professionals and less than 1% of networking professionals worldwide. Cisco also requires its Gold Partners to have the widest range of knowledge with multiple Cisco technologies, show extraordinary customer satisfaction, and hold the highest level of Cisco Lifecycle solutions expertise.
