Cable & Wireless Communications has achieved the Cisco® Master Service Provider designation with the introduction of Cisco PoweredTM MPLS VPN and Cisco Powered Metro Ethernet. This certification by Cisco’s Cloud and Managed Services Program (CMSP) recognizes C&W Communications (LIME, BTC and C&W Panama) as having achieved an elite level of expertise to sell and deliver cloud and/or managed services.

To be able to offer these services as Cisco Powered Services, C&W Communications needed to complete a rigorous third-party audit of its services. This audit verifies that services are delivered with enterprise-class reliability, security and support.

The Master Service Provider designation also recognizes C&W Communications’ investment and commitment to providing cloud and managed services at Cisco’s highest standards. The shared goal is to help businesses and organizations realize faster time to value.

“We are honored to have achieved this important certification from Cisco which reaffirms our focus on providing premium ICT products and solutions to Businesses and Governments in the 26 markets of Latin America and the Caribbean where we operate. With our proven network and our evolving fabric of data centers that represent the foundation for cloud, IT, and everything as a service solutions in our region, our main objective is to offer our customers an uneventful Customer Experience” said John Maduri, EVP and President, C&W Business.
