Verizon Business Earns Top Cisco Channel Partner Awards in Singapore

Verizon Business has been named the Cisco 2010 Top Global Service Provider of the Year, and has also received the Cisco 2010 Summit Club Award for Singapore. The awards were presented at Cisco's Singapore Partner CXO Kickoff, which was held recently in Kunming, China.  

Cisco's Partner awards recognize exemplary channel partners whose business best practices Cisco would like other partners to model. The winners are selected by a group of Cisco local and regional executives.

Andrew Dobbins, regional vice president, Verizon Business Asia-Pacific, said, "Over the past year, we have continued to expand our collaboration with Cisco. These awards recognize our ongoing investment in this strategic relationship to ensure we can continue to support our customers' evolving business goals."

Irving Tan, managing director of Cisco Singapore, said, "I am very pleased to recognize Verizon Business as our Top Global Service Provider of the Year and the winner of our Cisco 2010 Summit Club Award in Singapore. These awards represent a strong vote of confidence from Cisco and recognize Verizon Business' performance and success as a Cisco channel partner in Singapore."

Verizon Business and Cisco continue to collaborate closely on a wide range of initiatives to benefit large enterprise and multinational customers. Most recently, both companies showcased state-of-the-art custom digital video and wireless content at the 82,000-seat New Meadowlands Stadium in New Jersey, USA.
