848 recently announced that along with achieving the Cisco Select Integrator status, it also earned the Cisco Small Business Specialization. So, what does that mean for clients looking for a networking partner? 

SMBs are the powerhouses of the UK 

Small and medium businesses (SMBs) play a huge part in the UK economy. In 2020, there were nearly 6 million private businesses in the UK; 99.8% of these were SMBs with less than 250 employees. 

The SMB workforce is increasingly mobile and need a reliable, consistent and connected network. Small businesses need the same high-quality networking and security foundations as large enterprises. However, smaller businesses may not have the inhouse IT resources to deliver this architecture.  

That’s why, SMBs are increasingly seeking knowledgeable IT professionals who can efficiently design and deploy Cisco solutions that enable them to connect and collaborate securely. 

The Cisco Small Business Specialization 

Earning the Cisco Small Business Specialization means 848 has demonstrated it has the in-depth capabilities, IT skills and range of service offerings to provide sophisticated, value-added Cisco solutions to clients in the SMB space. To be awarded this certification, a Cisco Partner at 848 must prove it has the knowledge and high-quality expertise in house to design, configure, install and support Cisco technologies.  

848 has met all the requirements to certify it holds the expertise in tailoring secure, enterprise-class networking solutions for small and medium businesses.
