More and more business leaders opt for managed networking solutions like Network as a Service (NaaS). By engaging a Cisco Meraki Partner for a NaaS solution, enterprises expand geographically and boost revenue without the burden of increased expenses. 

The benefit comes from bundling hardware, licensing, configuration, implementation, and co-management into one monthly expense, which is scalable to meet a company’s unique needs.

Cisco Meraki is a cloud-first networking solution that simplifies network management and monitoring by providing cloud-managed devices like access points, switches, security appliances, and cameras. 

A key feature of teaming with a Cisco Meraki Partner is its cloud-based management platform. This platform allows administrators to manage and monitor their network devices from a central dashboard accessible through a web browser, which reduces the need for on-site IT expertise and complex CLI configurations.

The devices are designed for easy deployment and intuitive user interfaces, making them ideal for organizations that want a streamlined and user-friendly network management experience. 

Cisco Gold Partner

Working with a Cisco Gold Partner ensures expert product support for Cisco Meraki products. 

Authorized partners offer access to Meraki’s support team through various channels and can provide specialization options for clients who need supplementary support in a specific area of network security. You can also ensure proper licensure and network security protection by purchasing from an authorized reseller.

Becoming a Cisco Gold Partner requires achieving Premier Certified Partner status by meeting specific stringent criteria, including earning a minimum number of Cisco certified individuals and passing various exams. 

Additionally, Cisco Gold Partners are typically required to achieve a threshold number of Cisco specializations in various technology areas such as Collaboration, Data Centers, Security, Enterprise Networking, and Service Providers. 

Finally, Cisco Gold Partners must have a minimum number of Cisco certified individuals on staff, including individuals with Cisco Certified Network Professional and Cisco Certified Design Professional certifications.
