Cheers to the Channel! Extreme Partner Network Awarded 5-Star Rating by CRN

The awards keep rolling in for the channel!


CRM Partner Program 2016

For the third consecutive year, Extreme Networks has been awarded a 5-star rating in CRN’s 2016 Partner Program Guide! The Channel Company research team chose the Extreme Partner Network based on its program offerings, marketing programs and sales support, in addition to partner training and education.

Each year, CRN recognizes the technology vendors with the best channel programs that offer partners the most effective sales and enablement tools to push products through the IT channel. In turn, CRN’s prestigious listing acts as a directory to help solution providers determine what vendor they would like to partner with to best meet their business goals.

We are honored to be recognized and included as a top vendor. It truly is a testament to our global channel team, worldwide partner ecosystem and breadth of leading wired and wireless solutions. This ranking also reflects our strong commitment to partner success, including the most recent launch of the new Wireless Specialization Program in March 2016, in an effort to reward and create differentiation in the market for all our partners.


Congratulations to the Extreme channel team and be sure to check out our listing on CRN.com here.
