Yorktel knows a thing or two about managed services, and continues to add to that knowledge with its recent achievement of Cisco Cloud and Managed Services Advanced Certification, and designation for TelePresence as a service (TPaaS) Specialization.

These certifications bolster the company’s already-dominant managed services, which were responsible for half of Yorktel’s $100 million-plus annual revenue in 2015.

Cisco’s Cloud and Managed Services Program (CMSP) is a comprehensive framework through which partners offer enterprise-class cloud, managed, or virtual managed services based on Cisco technologies, according to a Yorktel press release.

“Across the board, our customers are looking to cloud and managed services in search of agility, by way of consuming technology that can accelerate their growth while also reducing costs,” says Yorktel VP of UC strategy, Denise Lage, in the press release.
