To be awarded Premier Certification Rymote was required to achieve the Cisco Express Foundation Specialisation, which included tests on technical competency in the integration of basic routing and switching, wireless LANs, and security technologies.

In addition, Rymote was required to integrate a base level of Cisco Lifecycle Services into their offering and demonstrate high levels of customer satisfaction based on independently audited customer surveys.

The Cisco Premier certification acknowledges the company’s breadth of skill and ability to deliver integrated Cisco networking solutions.

Al continued: “Achieving Premier certification was a key part of our strategy moving forward and will provide a platform for us to start growing the business and deliver more ground breaking technologies such as Software Defined Networking.”

“Rymote is a prime example of a new business making waves in their industry and exactly what Digital Leaders, itself a nominated start-up, is all about.

“I am delighted they have been chosen to represent the region at this national competition and wish them the best of luck in the finals.”
