Cisco and Digital will join forces to deliver enterprise networking products and services worldwide. As part of the move, Digital will participate in Cisco's Global Support Partner Certification Program. The new program recognises partners and delivers service and support to Cisco customers on a worldwide, around-the-clock basis. Digital is also planning on acquiring Cisco's gold certification locally to provide customers with large network design, implementation and support services.
"Our new relationship with Cisco builds on Digital's partnerships with two other technology leaders - Microsoft and Compaq. Customers want network integrators that have substantial relationships with major manufacturers because enterprises are multivendor and increasingly complex," said Graeme Shorter, vice-president of network services for Digital.
