Xalient achieves Silver Peak Certified Deployment Partner Accreditation
18th September 2020
We are delighted to announce that Xalient has achieved the new Silver Peak Certified Deployment Partner (CDP) Accreditation.
One of just six organisations worldwide to have successfully obtained the certification, the CDP program enables select partners to resell and deploy the Unity EdgeConnect™ SD-WAN edge platform, supporting customer WAN and security transformation initiatives.
“Becoming a Silver Peak CDP partner, coupled with our extensive global deployment experience in SD-WAN, enables us to further our mission of helping forward-thinking enterprises become more resilient, adaptable and responsive to change,” said Sherry Vaswani, CEO at Xalient. “It also underscores our expertise in guiding customers successfully through WAN and security transformations, building networks that accelerate their business.”
To participate in the CDP program, Xalient completed a rigorous training and certification regimen that requires advanced deployment certifications with proctored exams. CDP partner certifications include:
- SSP – Sales Professional
- STSP – Technical Sales Professional
- SPSP – Technical Professional
- SPSX – Technical Expert
- SDP – Deployment Professional
- SDX – Deployment Expert
To assure success with customers, CDPs are initially required to partner with a Silver Peak deployment engineer to demonstrate the requisite skill and acumen that spans initial design, deployment plan and post-deployment reviews.
“Modern enterprises are quickly recognizing that their legacy networks are holding them back from realizing the full transformational promise of the cloud and many are seeking skilled partners to drive their WAN and security transformation initiatives,” said Ken Marks, vice president of North America channel sales for Silver Peak. “This provides an unprecedented opportunity for our partners to bring new levels of business value to customers by attaining the training and certifications required to successfully drive SD-WAN deployments. The CDP program is architected to scale both the number of customers we can serve as well as the number of partners that we can enable to build high-growth profitable SD-WAN business practices – it’s a win-win for everyone.”
