Juniper Networks has handed its annual Distributor of the Year for A/NZ award to Ingram Micro. The gong was presented at the networking vendor's recent partner summit in Phuket, Thailand. According to Ingram, the Juniper Networks business has grown year-on-year, with the vendor becoming one of the most strategic partners in the Ingram Solutions Group.
"This is a fantastic win for us here at Ingram Micro and is the reward for two years or so of intensive business development activity hand-in-hand with the Juniper team," managing director, Guy Freeland, said. "The combination of great products from Juniper and value-adding customer service from our Juniper product, technical and sales teams has really delivered the goods."
Juniper enterprise channel manager, Rob Finn, said the win reflected the spectacular increase in revenues the distributors had generated locally.
Ingram was among several Juniper partners honoured for their achievements over the past year. TLC IT took out the award as Juniper General Series Australia J-Partner of the Year, while Netsolutions Australia won Juniper Advanced Technology Series ANZ J-Partner of the Year.
"Our channel partners continually demonstrate their depth of knowledge and expertise when working with customers to deliver the high-performance networking solutions they require," Asia-Pacific vice-president of enterprise and channels, Gary Kinsley, said. "We are honoured to award these J-Partners for their vast achievements, investment in Juniper and their growth and loyalty."
