Why Softcat for Cisco?

For over 15 years, Softcat has invested in a dedicated Cisco business practice and expertise across their entire technology portfolio. This has earned us Gold Partner status – the highest accreditation achievable in the Cisco partner community. We specialise in all four of Cisco’s key Advanced Specialisations - Enterprise Networking, Datacentre, Collaboration and Security - and as such are able to take customers from planning through to design, implementation and continual support of the solutions we deliver.

Softcat is helping our customers to build next-generation data centres powered by Cisco technology.

Softcat can also offer a host of Breakfix maintenance services to cover Cisco technology – whether that’s straight from Cisco itself, an equivalent service from Softcat or blending the two.  Either way, customers enjoy reliable first-line support, expert engineering resource and rapid access to parts and replacement equipment around the clock.

Software licensing

Software licensing

Increasingly, Cisco is decoupling its software assets from its hardware appliances. This gives customers the freedom to extend features across multiple devices and embrace new innovation that was not previously possible. 

Softcat is able to advise on and license the entire range of Cisco software.  We can also help customers understand the advantages of deploying new software versus switching hardware solutions.
