Black Box Achieves Cisco Master Managed Services Certification and Advanced Data Center Architecture Specialization
PITTSBURGH, PENNSYLVANIA – May 20, 2013 – Black Box Corporation (NASDAQ: BBOX), a leading communications systems integrator, announced today it has achieved the Cisco® Master Managed Services Certification. This certification distinguishes Black Box as having the highest level of expertise in developing and delivering managed services and recognizes its investment in the ITIL® (IT Infrastructure Library) processes, practices and tools necessary to provide high-quality managed services. Additionally, Black Box achieved the Advanced Data Center Architecture Specialization which recognizes the fulfillment of training requirements and program prerequisites to sell, design and deploy comprehensive Cisco® Data Center solutions.

From sophisticated monitoring to staff augmentation to transformational engagements that replace outdated infrastructure with new innovative solutions, these managed service offerings optimize communications system investments and continue to be a critical part of our clients’ requirements.”
