Hi. I checked the partner central info and the benefits of being a partner, however I find it still a bit vague. I was wondering if anyone could explain a bit further about the pros and cons of being a partner. I am a network associate in a company where we have recently purchased several cisco devices. We don't sell cisco devices. I am primarily interested in obtaining the privilege of downloading propriety cisco software and being able to get access to cisco's knowledge base and the like. I would appreciate any help on this. Thanks.

If all you need is the Cisco knowledge base (such as Bug Traq) and download softwares, then you just need a valid service contract for all your purchases of Cisco kit and create a CCO account using it.


1)Once you become a partner you will have access to the Partner Education Learning center which will benefit you and other employees of your company.

2) As a partner you will have access to Cisco Sales Engineers who will be available to go onsite with you and sell other Cisco equipment efficiently to youe customers.

I recommend starting with the SMB Select Certification. You only need 1 person to take both required exams to earn this certification.
