Industry Leading Partners

GDS has partnered with the most recognizable and successful names in the industry to create and deliver dynamic, cost effective solutions for our customers.

Cisco

cisco-logoIn 1992, Global Data Systems entered into a relationship with Cisco Systems. Since that time, the two companies have held one of the closest and most successful working relationships in the VAR (value added reseller) community. As Cisco began to change and innovate, so did GDS, with the two companies growing almost in tandem for the last two decades. 

In 1999, GDS is recognized as having worked Cisco to deploy the very first commercial VoIP (Voice-over-IP) telephone system in the Southeastern United States. Following this, GDS was instrumental in the introduction of Cisco’s core products and services for voice, video and data to the Southeastern market. In 1999 Cisco achieved Gold Partner status and then became a Cisco MSCP in 2011.  For more information on our Cisco Skill Sets please click here to download the .PDF.
