OCSL announced today that it has been awarded Cisco® UK Rising Star Partner of the Year 2016.  Cisco unveiled the eight winners of its UK Partner Awards on 24th November at its annual Partner Forum.  Presented to exemplary channel partners, the Cisco UK Partner Awards recognise the achievements of a select group of Cisco partners and their innovation in 2016.

“Our partners are core to our success, and we are delighted to be working with the UK’s best to help solve our customers’ challenges” said Angela Whitty, Managing Director, Partner, UK and Ireland, Cisco. “It’s our great pleasure to recognize OCSL for its exceptional work and award them with Cisco UK Rising Star Partner of the Year FY16 award.”

Martin Hess, OCSL’s Chairman reflected, “This Award means a lot to OCSL.  It recognises the part we’ve played in Cisco’s success and our innovation in software defined networking (SDN).  Cisco’s SDN offers our clients a much greater degree of flexibility and control.  Networks can be more finely segmented across different areas and it delivers a much higher level of security.  Ultimately, it will help clients meet tougher compliance targets in the future.”

He continued, “Whether infrastructure is in the Cloud, On Premise, or both, all of our clients need agile solutions. We need to help them deliver applications and services in minutes, not days. Once again, I’m proud to say, working with Cisco, the OCSL team have proven their ability to pinpoint better answers.
