Claranet awarded Cisco Premier Provider status

Cisco recognises Claranet with Premier Provider worldwide designation. A credit for strong alignment in rolling out software defined wide area networks deploying Cisco’s Meraki SD-WAN solution.

This latest achievement builds on Claranet’s recent Customer Experience Accreditation that recognises their ability to deliver Cisco’s Lifecycle approach to technology adoption, plus Cisco’s Environmental Sustainability Specialisation that highlights Claranet’s industry leading practice in this area and solidifies our continued commitment to this partnership.

Commenting on the latest status accreditation, Rich Oliver, Workplace Director at Claranet said:

Working in close partnership with Cisco is a fantastic example of the value we can bring to our customers around secure networks. This includes active engagement to continuously review their evolving technology requirements.

The blend of Cisco’s technology expertise and our ability to tailor this for our customers with additional complementary services, shows how we are combining our skills and experience to deliver real competitive advantage.”

Gav Young, Partner Account Manager at Cisco added:

The way we are all moving into a software defined world with remote and hybrid working, enables partners like Claranet to offer an end-to-end managed service across the Cisco stack.

Nearly every Internet connection in the UK touches Cisco technology and we're investing in projects across the nation to support innovation, from smart cities to transport, healthcare and manufacturing, to cybersecurity and digital skills.

The most important thing for us is to build out our managed services, and this is where there is a great opportunity for Cisco and Claranet to work closely together, adding significant value for our customers and to disrupt the marketplace.

Congratulations to Claranet for meeting all the criteria to achieve their Premier Provider designation worldwide.”
