Blue Networks and Infrastructure (BNI), one of South Africa’s newly started Exempt Micro Enterprises (EME), has been certified as a Cisco Gold Partner in South Africa – the highest certification level attainable within the Cisco Channel Partner programme.
The annual certification follows BNI meeting rigorous standards set out by Cisco to demonstrate it is qualified to sell, install, and support Cisco solutions in South Africa.
“Cisco is privileged to work with some of the best channel partners around the world, and it is our honour to welcome BNI as a Cisco Gold Partner in South Africa,” said Clayton Naidoo, General Manager, Cisco Sub Saharan Africa.
“BNI joined the Cisco EDGE Programme in June 2019, which aims to share business knowledge, help develop small and medium businesses in the digital age, speed up their entry to market and, as a result, create new jobs for the local economy. BNI has shown tremendous commitment since joining the programme. Cisco is proud to see the reward of our efforts around the EDGE Programme.”
Debbie Lane, Senior Product Manager at BNI, added: “BNI benefited enormously from the Cisco EDGE programme, whereby small and medium businesses had the opportunity to attend multiple weekly training sessions remotely or at the various national Cisco EDGE Incubation Centres.
“BNI’s close relationship and strategic partnership with Cisco will enable us to provide end-to-end solutions to our clients. With the latest technologies and moving with the latest trends and our niche in-house solutions, we guarantee our commitment to our clients in providing industry-leading solutions in the market space.”
