About Us

Based in the North East of England, Rymote was born from the need to work more efficiently for both our customers and our staff. With trust in technology growing, a need for customers to reduce costs and engineers trying to work as efficiently as possible, we realised it was the perfect time to introduce remote working.

With a strong team of Cisco engineers, we decided to streamline our services so we could become experts in our field. We want to be more than just a service provider to our customers, we want to become part of their team. If you’re looking for a Sunderland Cisco Partner, Durham Cisco Partner or a Newcastle Cisco Partner, look no further.

Rymote are one of only six companies in the North East of England with Cisco Premier Partner status. Read more about it here!

We currently supply services to customers based in Durham, Teeside, Northumberland, Newcastle, Sunderland and Cumbria. Why not get in touch?
