Annual Channel Partner Survey Shows Juniper Ranks Best in Class
SUNNYVALE, Calif., Dec. 30, 2010 — Juniper Networks (NASDAQ:JNPR, news, filings) today announced it has been recognized by Business Solutions Magazine's (BSM's) readership as one of the Best Channel Vendors in 2011. Presented annually, the industry accolade is voted on by thousands of IT solutions providers, calculated by Penn State University and awarded by BSM to those vendors who score within the top five percent of their respective technology category.
As one of the top-performing vendors, Juniper Networks received exceptional marks in product features, product reliability and product innovation, and scored particularly well in other measured criteria such as service and support, channel friendliness and adequate VAR margins.
With more than 11,500 votes cast, the annual BSM Best Channel Vendor readership survey offers a reputable benchmark for evaluating channel partners' perceptions and experiences, as well as rating the overall effectiveness of a vendor's channel strategy, products and partner programs.
"The competitive landscape in a high profile category such as network security makes the win of being recognized as one of the Best Channel Vendors in 2011 all the more rewarding," says Sue Breese, publisher, BSM. "We applaud Juniper's success and are pleased to award them with the honor of a Best Channel Vendor 2011."
In 2010, Juniper Networks introduced a number of new and enhanced product innovations, and doubled-down on its partner enablement resources with the introduction of the Juniper Networks Learning Academy and the Juniper Networks Global Marketing Resource Center.
"Juniper prides itself on leading the market in technology innovation and usability, as well as delivering high-value resources and support services that we believe ensure our channel partners' value proposition and overall market expertise," says Frank Vitagliano, senior vice president of Partners-America at Juniper Networks. "The honor of Best Channel Vendor speaks volumes to the ongoing success of our channel efforts and the commitment we've maintained to our channel partners year after year."
