Carousel Industries is Named 'Commercial Partner of the Year, Americas' By Juniper Networks

Award is Highlighted by Carousel's Achievement of 110 Percent Year Over Year Growth, Helping Customers Migrate Towards Collaborative Unified Communications Platforms

Exeter, RI February 2, 2015 -- Carousel Industries, a leader in unified communications, managed services, data solutions and visual communications, announced that it was named 'Commercial Partner of the Year, Americas' by Juniper Networks. The announcement follows a year of tremendous success in Carousel's ongoing partnership with Juniper, highlighted by a year over year sales increase of 110 percent across the Americas during 2014.

Juniper Networks' products, including its MX series routers and its and EX series ethernet switches, played a foundational role in Carousel's implementation of virtualized data center solutions for its customers, which operate in many diverse markets. Carousel delivered a combination of unique technical capabilities — including fully automated provisioning and service deployment of best in class product solutions from Juniper Networks. This is a value-add for customers since Carousel adds a managed and professional services dimension to the existing capabilities Juniper delivers today. 

"We are honored to be recognized as 'Commercial Partner of the Year, Americas'," commented Jim Marsh, Senior Vice President, Carousel Industries. "As enterprises continue to accelerate their migration to cloud-based, collaborative systems, Carousel and Juniper are uniquely positioned to help them realize their goals faster, so they can become more efficient and competitive in the way they communicate."

Carousel's Juniper-related sales growth in 2014 was realized through a wide range of successful unified communications deployments for both existing and net new customers. Carousel's technical team retains a large number of Juniper Champion certifications across the country to support these efforts. 

"We congratulate Carousel Industries on this remarkable achievement, which is well deserved and highlights both companies' long-term strategic partnership," commented Jon Belcher, VP Channels U.S., Juniper Networks. "Apart from Carousel's astounding sales performance, this award was earned by Carousel's ability to address a range of vertical markets with uncommon integration expertise and broad technical knowledge."
