Don’t Miss the Highlights from our North America Partner Conference

Two weeks ago, Extreme Networks hosted its North America Partner Conference in Las Vegas, Nevada. The conference followed the successful launch of the new Extreme Partner Network (EPN), which focuses on unifying the Extreme and Enterasys legacy partner ecosystem by simplifying engagement and maximizing partner profitability through a broader technology portfolio, global access to expanded service offerings, enhanced incentives and comprehensive training. What sets us apart in being ‘channel first’ is our proven engagement and ongoing join achievement with partners. We live it every day, and are committed to partnering for success.

Throughout the conference, we received excellent feedback from our partners, who said the new program is “one of the best vendor programs” they have experienced. Specifically, they echo this sentiment by working with their businesses, giving them attention, services and products that differentiate them from their competitors, and ultimately Extreme’s partners succeed. For example, five CIO customers said that Extreme Networks Global Services Program, a key part of the EPN, is one of the key reasons for continuing to purchase our solutions. We are committed to being a partner-first organization with our published rules of engagement, the redesigned, rewarding EPN Program, our field engagement model and our new global distribution network.

To commemorate the launch of the Extreme Partner Network and the North America Partner Conference, we’ve compiled social media and press coverage highlights below:
