Earns Overall Win in Enterprise Networking Infrastructure Category; Recognized for Superior Channel Partnership and Support
SUNNYVALE, Calif., Aug. 25, 2010 — Juniper Networks® (NYSE: JNPR) today announced it was named the 2010 CRN Annual Report Card (ARC) "Company of the Year" in the highly competitive Enterprise Networking Infrastructure category.
The prestigious accolade from Everything Channel recognizes Juniper with the overall win, as well as two sub-category wins for superior channel partnership and support. Juniper Channel Chief Frank Vitagliano accepted the honor last night at the 2010 XChange Americas conference in Dallas.
Earlier this year, Juniper captured a sub-category Channel Champs win for Financial Factors within the Enterprise Networking Hardware category.
"Earning the CRN ARC award within the Enterprise Networking Infrastructure category is significant and changes the industry dynamics by bringing our EX Series Ethernet Switches front and center," says Vitagliano, senior vice president, Partners-Americas, Juniper Networks. "We continue to invest heavily in our channel partners so it's extremely rewarding to see the technology innovation, channel partnership and ongoing support that defines and differentiates Juniper Networks from other networking vendors recognized in this year's CRN ARC."
The CRN Annual Report Card serves as a definitive benchmark of relationships between vendors and channel partners and maintains an industry standard for measuring excellence within the channel community. This year's Everything Channel ARC research team surveyed more than 3,700 solution providers in 18 product and service categories to evaluate the importance and rank the satisfaction they have with their vendors' products, support and channel programs.
"For 25 years, we have asked solution providers to rate vendors on their channel commitment and excellence in providing superb service to identify the true leaders of the channel," says Kelley Damore, vice president, editorial director, Everything Channel. "Winning the CRN ARC is one of the most prestigious honors in the IT channel industry and we congratulate Juniper Networks."
The complete listing of the 2010 Annual Report Card will be featured in the October issue of CRN Magazine and online at www.crn.com.
