SMS Re-certified As Cisco Gold Integrator

McLean, VA | April 26, 2021 – SMS announced today that the company has been recertified as a Cisco Gold Integrator for the 17th consecutive year.

SMS has designed, built, engineered, operated and re-sold Cisco solutions into DoD and federal agencies since the late 1980’s, with dozens of their engineers currently holding over 300 Cisco certifications. Throughout the 1990’s and early 2000’s, SMS focused on the burgeoning routing and switching requirements in the Federal Government, and have since both continued and expanded that focus into software-defined platforms, unified communications, cybersecurity, and data center modernization initiatives. Cisco’s solutions have played a key role in SMS’ development as a systems integrator, engineering company, and re-seller.

Ben Friedman, SMS’ Vice President of Strategic Sourcing commented, “SMS is once again honored to be awarded this distinction from Cisco. We place a high value upon our long-term relationships with trusted technologies and Cisco is one of our longest standing partners.”  Friedman added, “Not only does this certification give our customers competitive pricing but also assures them that SMS knows well the Cisco product line and technology for final installation or service.”
