Rob Messmer, Senior Director & Channel Chief for CBTS, said,
“I’m extremely proud of the impact our Indirect Team has made in the National Channel in just a couple years. It is clear that CBTS naturally fills gaps by enabling partners to sell and align with Cisco. Also, CBTS’ multi-platform SD-WAN offering allows trusted advisors to safely guide their clients through this hyper-dynamic software defined inflection point. CBTS remains bullish on the Channel and is intentionally focused on steady growth to maintain our position of making partners HEROs to their clients.”

The industry trade show allowed CBTS to host demonstrations of Cisco Unified Communications, Cisco Meraki Network as a Service, and VeloCloud SD-WAN. Their Senior Director of Engineering, Matt Douglass, battled it out on the SD-WAN Thunderdome panel against Aryaka, CloudGenix, and Oracle.
“2019 was our best Channel Partners yet. The level of excitement and interest in the CBTS portfolio exceeded all our estimates. CBTS is becoming well known for our Cisco as a Service UCaaS and CCaaS offerings, our Meraki stack as a service, and our multi-platform SD-WAN practice. Partners are realizing that CBTS provides a white glove experience while delivering on the most complex business outcomes. The CBTS story could not be more exciting as we focus on our most important job – making our partners heroes in the most technically demanding engagements.”
Senior Director of Engineering
Overall, the CBTS team hosted 45 meetings with partners from across the United States. They are looking forward to Channel Partners Evolution, September 9-12th in Washington, D.C.
