On July 22, Jacobs Engineering Group, Inc. announced that it is officially a Cisco Gold Partner. The elevated partnership gives Jacobs the ability to certify a greater sense of quality service at discounted prices. According to the Darren Kraabel, Vice President of Jacobs, less than three percent of all Cisco partners achieve this status.
“Cisco Gold status is a significant achievement for Jacobs, one that complements and enhances our value-added reseller and technology lifecycle management services,” said Kraabel. “In addition to providing our network engineers and technicians with insight and technical certifications into emerging telecommunications technologies, we’re leveraging our Gold partnership to work closely with Cisco on developing ‘Internet of Things’ solutions for our clients across multiple market sectors.”
Kraabel went on to state in the company press release that Jacobs will now pursue Cisco’s new Cloud and Management Services Provider Specialization. This service aligns with many of the IT service solutions Jacobs already offers to its Federal clients.
“Collectively, these certifications will enable Jacobs to continue to provide leading edge telecommunications solutions for our clients as those technologies evolve,” said Kraabel.
