At our annual Cisco Partner Summit last week I had the honor and the privilege of recognizing our top global performers for 2006.”

The Cisco Global Awards are conferred to partners who meet a specific set of requirements, which are designed to identify the best channel partner in each category. Cisco has also built a formalized nomination and selection process that begins with each sales theater identifying and nominating a channel partner for each category. These nominations are reviewed and a collective group that includes Cisco worldwide channels and theater channel executives makes final selections. All of the global and theater Partner of the Year awards are in compliance with the requirements of the Cisco Channel Partner Program and customer satisfaction as its foundational criterion.
