TBL Networks has successfully landed a trifecta of Cisco Partner Certifications. Along with the renewal of our Cisco Gold Certification, we have also met all criteria to become Master Collaboration Specialized, and a Cisco Cloud and Managed Services Master Partner.

TBL’s Limelight PCaaS is an original new way for organizations to consume technology, spotlighting the key benefits of both on-premise and public cloud solutions. We are bringing this unique service to market initially for its three core technologies: Limelight Collaboration for voice, video and collaboration solutions, Limelight Desktop for VDI solutions and Limelight Infrastructure for server consolidation solutions.
Cisco Gold Certified Partner
For the third time since 2011, TBL has renewed our Gold Certification, the highest level of Partner Certification that Cisco offers. In order to be honored with this certification, you must demonstrate savvy in all technology areas of Cisco solutions.
When evaluating companies for the Gold Certification, Cisco takes a multitude of factors into consideration. Partners must meet support requirements – such as offering 24/7 customer service – as well as complete surveys that verify customer satisfaction is being achieved.
There are currently only 159 Cisco Gold Partners in the United States and we are proud to have been one of them, year after year.
Master Collaboration Specialized
Specialization in Cisco collaboration solutions means that we have demonstrated mastery of Voice, Video and Contact Center solutions. Right now, only 79 partners in the United States can say that they are Master Collaboration Specialized.
To gain this title, TBL showed that we are skillful in a variety of communications technologies, including call processing, messaging, and conferencing. In addition, Cisco also requires that companies complete a live audit and submit 5 complex customer references.
Master Cloud and Managed Service Provider
Cisco understands “you want the same experience from the cloud as your on-premises solutions.” Those who have achieved the Master Cloud
and Managed Service Provider designation are companies that Cisco is assured can provide reliability and security.

Out of the 15,502 registered Cisco Partners, there are only 41 who hold all 3 of these designations. We are proud to be one of them, and to give our clients further confidence in TBL Networks.
