NFF is collaborating with CCIE Agent Eman Conde
NFF’s Staff Augmentation Mission is “To provide the highest caliber of professionals that will best fit our clients’ needs and who integrate seamlessly into their environment.” To support this effort, NFF has partnered with CCIE specialized recruiter Emmanuel Conde (Eman). This collaboration allows us to identify, qualify, and deliver the best talent in the industry (both nationally and internationally) to our customers which equips them to adapt to the challenges of the dynamic technology landscape.
NFF is an awarded Cisco Gold Partner, providing IT solutions, products, and services since 1996. NFF has a proven track record of placing highly qualified IT professionals specialized as Cisco Certified Network Engineers. Our IT staff augmentation services are focused on providing Certified Network Architects & Engineers, Operations Support Professionals, Systems Administrators, Software Developers, Information and Network Security, VoIP and Project Management Professionals.
Eman is the only Cisco authorized CCIE recruiter promoted by the worldwide channels of Cisco Systems, supporting the Channel Partner Community. He has presented at Cisco talent gatherings around the world, Cisco Networking Academy events, and helped develop an international CCIE mentor program.
For over 18 years, Eman worked directly with CCIEs and has the understanding and the background to ensure that CCIE’s career growth and objectives are addressed. He has connected with over 20,000 of the 30,000 active CCIEs in the world. His website CCIE Flyer, an online magazine, receives on average 1,000 visitors a day.
We are looking forward to expanding our customer base and supporting the increasing demand for specialized, certified technology professionals. What differentiates us from other staffing firms is our in-house team of Subject Matter Experts (SMEs) who enable us to better assess requirements, qualify candidates’ technical competencies, and deliver the best IT resources to our customers. Our partnership with Eman positions NFF to continue on its path as a leader in IT Staff Augmentation.
What it means to receive Cisco’s Customer Satisfaction Excellence Award
The Cisco Channel Customer Satisfaction Excellence assessment is based upon the customer satisfaction results captured in the Cisco Partner online tool. Each quarter Cisco acknowledges certified partners that have the highest customer satisfaction distinction within each geographic region. NFF was recently recognized for Customer Satisfaction Excellence for the 20th time.
Customer Satisfaction Excellence is the highest distinction a partner can achieve within the Cisco Channel Partner Program. To qualify for Customer Satisfaction Excellence recognition, you must meet two qualifications:
- Cisco Gold partners must have at least 30 customers responding to the online assessment, rating their experience between 1-5 with 5 designating “Very Satisfied.”
- Gold partners need to achieve a score of at least 4.60.
NFF’s rating in January was 4.95 and in July we achieved 5.0!
The questions on the assessment focus on the pre-sales and post-sales levels of quality. Cisco measures the levels of professionalism, matching products/services to business goals, responsiveness, skill levels, and the ability to diagnose issues, to name a few. Customers may also provide their own personal feedback. Here are some examples of the feedback NFF customers provided during the recent survey:
DC Lottery Board Receives Comprehensive Security Solution
NFF’s team of engineers designed and procured a comprehensive network and security solution for the DC Lottery Board in conjunction with the District of Columbia Office of the Chief Information Officer’s IT Project Management team.
The solution includes the latest Cisco Catalyst converged access switches, ASA firewalls, Identity Services, and Cisco SourceFire Next-Generation IPS. Cisco SourceFire’s Next-Generation Intrusion Prevention System provides real-time visibility and intelligence of suspicious network traffic and potential threats through a single management control platform. This solution is integral in providing the necessary controls to meet required financial network security compliance standards.
NFF Provides Wireless Solution to the University of the District of Columbia
NFF designed and implemented an end-to-end Wireless Solution for PR Harris Workforce Development and Lifelong Learning (WDLL) students as part of the University of the District of Columbia’s (UDC) student program.
The solution enhances the student experience in the PR Harris classrooms via optimal internet access, allowing an enhanced learning experience. This solution is managed centrally from UDC’s main campus and allows students high-speed wireless coverage using the latest in Cisco’s Converged Access, 802.11ac, and ClearAir technology.
It includes switches, access points, and power protection to ensure continuous and seamless wired and wireless network access across each WDLL classroom and common study areas. PR Harris students who use various tablets, laptops, and other mobile devices will be able to securely access their online course curriculum.
