The First Global Gold Partners
For the first time in 10 years, Cisco has created a new certification tier for partners, Cisco Global Gold, which is now the highest status in the networking giant's Partner Program surpassing Cisco Gold.
The San Jose, Calif.-based network leader said the new top tier was needed to better support global customers and make enterprise license agreements easier for partners to sell between borders. In additional to several specific requirements, the performance thresholds for achieving Global Gold status includes at least $350 million in annual Cisco revenue, an 80 percent services attach rate and a 70 percent renewal rates.
