Distributor Westcon Group has announced an extended agreement with Juniper Networks, a leader in high-performance networking, to distribute its high-performance network infrastructure solutions.
Westcon Group is now able to offer Juniper’s infrastructure and security products throughout its European geographies – the Netherlands, Belgium, Germany, France, Ireland, Austria, Italy and the UK – and is able to deliver a robust value proposition to customers focused on networking and convergence through its Westcon Convergence business practice. Previously, only Westcon Group’s Noxs business practice carried Juniper’s security solutions to mainland Europe.
In 2007, Westcon Group’s Noxs business practice received Juniper’s EMEA Distributor of the Year award at the manufacturer’s partner conference in Alicante, Spain, where the distributor was recognized as having helped Juniper achieve “customer-centric, qualitative success,” while developing the manufacturer’s geographical reach.
Barry Shakespeare, Executive Vice-President of Westcon Group Europe, commented: “We are very pleased to extend our relationship with Juniper with the addition of both Westcon Convergence and Noxs as distribution partners in the UK, and the strengthening of our Juniper partnership in mainland Europe with the addition of Westcon Convergence to our existing Noxs relationship. This is an important development as we continue to work with our customers to exploit opportunities in the enterprise networking and security markets across our key geographies.”
Reseller partners of Westcon Convergence and Noxs now have access to Juniper’s best-in-class enterprise high-performance network infrastructure solutions, including Ethernet switches, routers, and security products.
“Westcon Group has a highly developed network of enterprise-focused resellers in the U.K. who will appreciate the flexibility and performance of Juniper’s best-in-class solutions,” commented David Small, Vice President of Channel Sales, EMEA Juniper Networks, Inc. “When you combine the strength of Juniper’s high-performance network infrastructure solutions with the comprehensive support offered through Westcon and Noxs, it spells greater opportunity for us across the board.”
