North-south telecoms player BT has scored a hat trick after being named Partner of the Year by Cisco. BT received similar accolades from Avaya and EMC in recent months.

Cisco country manager Adam Grennan said the award recognises exemplary business practices, technology and impact on overall revenue.

“BT Ireland has delivered exceptionally on its ability to succeed in the business market using the Cisco portfolio of solutions.

“Cisco has been a Gold partner of ours for 15 years and having achieved double-digit Cisco growth every year for the past three years, the company has proved itself as a high-performing, reliable partner that understands our solutions and uses its extensive experience and global reach to ensure continued success across all market segments,” said Grennan.

BT Ireland managing director Shay Walsh said the triple run of awards has been recognition for the ICT solutions team that had worked hard over the last 12 months.

“Being recognised by our key partners in the industry reflects our ability to consistently integrate our partners with world-class leading solutions that meet the needs and requirements of our growing customer base,” Walsh said.
