Windsor, Conn., March 11, 2016 — Carousel Industries, a leader in unified communication and cloud-based networking technologies, IT professional and managed services, and public, private and hybrid cloud solutions, today announced that it has been recognized as a Partner of the Year by Juniper Networks, the industry leader in network innovation.
Awarded to exemplary channel partners, the Juniper Networks Partner of the Year awards are designed to recognize best-in-class business practices and serve as a model to the industry. Areas of consideration include growth rate of product sales, large customer wins, execution of training and marketing activities. Carousel was recognized during the IDEAS/Connected 2016 conference for their expertise and year-over-year growth in the education vertical.
“It is an honor to receive a Partner of the Year award from Juniper Networks,” commented James Marsh, chief revenue officer, Carousel Industries. “In the education vertical, and in all of the other markets we serve, Carousel embraces a ‘trusted advisor’ philosophy. This not only helps us to deliver more valuable solutions for our customers, but it is also an essential ingredient in building loyal, ongoing relationships that span years — and in some cases, decades. This award highlights our expertise in areas such as networking, maintenance and managed services, but also reflects our continued commitment to making our education-focused customers more successful.”
“Carousel Industries’ education consultants are experts in understanding the diverse factors contributing to changing learning environments, including part-time and remote student populations as education organizations begin to leverage the benefits of the cloud,” said Matt Hurley, corporate vice president, Global Channels and Field Marketing at Juniper Networks. “Companies such as Carousel represent the best among our global partners and we look forward to continuing to strengthen our relationship with them.”
Having deployed leading education solutions for more than a decade, Carousel is able to deliver end-to-end solutions for the education vertical that comprise networking, security, managed services, maintenance and cloud solutions.
