Enterasys, now part of Extreme Networks, recently hosted our North America Partner Conference in Fort Myers, Florida. The week was jam-packed with interactive sessions, exciting company updates and noteworthy speakers, including Matt Heinz, President of Heinz Marketing, and Ray Wang, CEO of Constellation Research. We also treated attendees to a surprise appearance from football legend, Anthony Munoz—an 11 time Pro Bowler and Pro Football Hall of Famer. At the event, Enterasys marked another year of record progress in the channel, reaching 1,300 worldwide partners and a 20 percent year-over-year increase in partners.
