Our Key Industry Accreditations

Cisco Partner

Environmental Sustainability Specialized

Ideal have a long standing relationship with Cisco, and have deployed Cisco’s best in class technology on the majority of our Smart Building projects. Ideal is also Environmental Sustainability Specialised, which both aligns with Ideal’s own sustainability policies and leverages Circular Economy principles to reduce the environmental impact of the network build.

The Environmental Sustainability Specialisation allows us to commit to the idea of the circular economy and product takeback. Helping customers update their older technologies and migrate to cloud-based solutions, the specialisation supports us to help customers responsibly repurpose or recycle end-of-use products, as well as use of refurbished products instead of new, all of which help reduce supply chain carbon footprint.
