Kudos to the EPN for Yet Another Channel Award Win!


9767-CRN-Network-Connectivity-Award-2016_Feat-BlogWe’re excited to announce that the Extreme Partner Network has been included in CRN’s annual Network Connectivity Services Partner Program Guide!

This is the second CRN guide the EPN has been included in this year, following Extreme’s inclusion in CRN’s 2016 Partner Program Guide in April.


CRN’s 2016 Network Connectivity Services Partner Program Guide recognizes the leading product portfolios of telecom, cloud and connectivity offerings in the IT channel market. The guide also acknowledges partner programs that are committed to preparing partners for new trends by embracing innovation within the IT and telecom sector. Extreme is highlighted as one of twelve leading channel partner programs on the guide within the “Infrastructure Provider” category.

Being recognized for the second time this year by CRN speaks to the success and growth of our partner ecosystem as well as program offerings, especially after the recent enhancements to the EPN announced in July. Our extensive product portfolio of end-to-end, wired and wireless software-driven networking solutions, including ExtremeCloud, enables differentiation and outstanding leadership in the enterprise campus market.


Congratulations to the Extreme channel team for their recognition as a leading partner program in the industry once again and be sure to check out the listing here.
