Similarly, Cisco hailed PLDT Inc. as its Tier 2 Partner of the year during its annual Partner Summit Conference.

“We would like to thank Cisco Philippines for this recognition. It is a confirmation to our group's capabilities in delivering Cisco solutions in the market, which have enabled many businesses to continue their operations successfully amid the current challenges,” said Jovy Hernandez, ePLDT President & CEO and SVP & Head for PLDT and Smart Enterprise Business Groups.

The Small Business Partner award recognizes the group’s ICT arm, ePLDT Inc., not only for the revenue brought in but the effort in creating unique solutions that differentiate ePLDT’s value and help businesses thrive amid the pandemic. In particular, ePLDT Inc. launched new solutions such as BEYOND FIBER, which is one of the results of the group’s partnership with Cisco Meraki.

The Software Partner award, meanwhile, recognizes ePLDT for enabling its customers to turn data generated by the hardware into actionable insights and new revenue streams. PLDT Enterprise, through ePLDT, stood out among Cisco’s partners with significant recurring software bookings for the majority of customers in the commercial segment, via SD-WAN and Meraki software offers in the frontline of their productized solutions.

PLDT Inc. was also hailed as Cisco’s Tier 2 Partner of the Year for bringing significant revenue growth in the Philippines. As a strategic partner to Cisco, investments have been made to help accelerate the country’s digitization plan through a multi-year digital transformation journey.

“With the onset of the pandemic early last year, the need to strengthen our digital infrastructure was top priority, and we have been fortunate to have Cisco as our partner,” said Al Panlilio, PLDT Chief Revenue Officer and Smart President and CEO.

“This recognition is a milestone as we continue our efforts at PLDT to help enable the country to gear up for the next generation of digital technologies,” Panlilio added.
