Gold star and a tick for Ciscom

Added to elite of Cisco's channel

Teddington-based reseller Ciscom has become a Cisco Systems Gold Partner. It joins 17 other resellers in this elite networking channel group in the UK. Ciscom has the biggest number of Cisco sales staff in Europe and more Cisco Internetworking Experts (CCIEs) than any reseller or distributor in the UK, according to a company statement. Not bad for a company started two years ago with 80 staff spread between offices in London and Manchester. Iain McTaggart, Ciscom MD, said the company was taking on staff every week and sales were strong. "We're doing so well because this is all we do." Ciscom may be Cisco's blue-eyed boy, but it is not everyone’s favourite networking reseller at the moment. It is in the process of being sued by distributor ilion – which wants "substantial damages for losses…in connection with an irregular transaction" from Ciscom. ®
