Cisco Authorized Partner Programs are continually evaluated and updated so that they remain relevant to the industry and reflect current market demands. We create new programs to address networking technology advances, and retire them as customer needs evolve and change.
Once an Authorized Partner Program is retired, no new applications for that program will be accepted beyond the specified deadline. An Authorized Partner Program remains valid for 12 months from a partner's approval date as long as partner remains compliant with program rules. Cisco reserves the right to modify deadlines and timeframes.
