London 8 November 2023. Logicalis, a leading global technology services provider, has been named Sustainability Partner of the Year at Cisco Partner Summit 2023. Cisco’s Partner Summit Global Awards recognise top-performing partners demonstrating innovation in delivering solutions that help customers succeed in new ways.
Announced today at the Global Partner Summit event in Miami, the inaugural award recognises Logicalis’ outstanding sustainability performance and success in helping customers reduce the environmental impact of their IT infrastructure across the globe.
In partnership with Cisco, Logicalis is powering customer progress on their sustainability goals through Cisco-powered services, including:
- Responsible recycling and repurposing of end-of-use equipment by customers such as GJames in Australia.
- Smart building solutions that maximise energy and resource efficiency for customers such as UKRI in the United Kingdom.
- Logicalis’ suite of digital managed services, including the Cisco-powered Intelligent Connectivity solution, underpinned by Logicalis’ award-winning Digital Fabric Platform, that enable customers to measure and reduce the environmental impact of their IT infrastructure.
Logicalis was also named – for the second year running – the Cisco Global Enterprise Networking and Meraki Partner of the Year for demonstrating continued innovation, driving engagement, and delivering even greater value for its customers and communities. The recognition follows Logicalis’ launch of its Cisco-powered Intelligent Connectivity suite earlier this year, which includes solutions such as Private 5G, SD-WAN, SASE, SSE, SD-Access and ACI Data Centre.
Commenting on the wins, Robert Bailkoski, Global CEO at Logicalis said: “Over the past 12 months, our goal was to create meaningful change for our industry as we focused on driving sustainable outcomes for customers through our managed connectivity services.
