Juniper Networks announces A/NZ partner award winners

16 Aug 2017

Juniper Networks has announced the recipients of its Australia and New Zealand Partner Awards.

ICT services company Communications Design & Management (CDM) won the top honour, taking out the award for ANZ partner of the year.

CDM is an Australian-owned company with teams across Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane and Canberra.

The company says their partnership with Juniper Networks sets them apart from market incumbents in networking, managed services, and systems integration.

Brett Kullman, Communications Design & Management general manager says the partnership allowed CDM to develop a more well-rounded and all encompassing approach for customers

“Today’s technology conversations are increasingly being had outside of IT departments and at the boardroom table.

“As vendors move from technical requirements to business-oriented goals, both government and enterprise customers are now looking for providers that can offer ongoing engagements beyond the procurement process.”

The awards gala took place yesterday at the annual ANZ Juniper Summit, which hosted over 200 partners, customers and IT/business decision-makers for two days of networking and industry insights.

This year’s event featured an inaugural partner day and was held at The Establishment in Sydney.

This year’s A/NZ Juniper Partner Awards were presented across six categories to the following winners:

  • A/NZ Partner of the Year – CDM

  • Service Partner of the Year – 2degrees

  • Distributor of the Year – Westcon Australia

  • Cloud Partner of the Year –  NTT

  • Networking and Security Partner of the Year – Telstra

  • Emerging Partner of the Year – Sparx Solutions

Reflecting on this year’s winners, Darrin Iatrou, Juniper Networks ANZ area partner director, says their success is a testament to their continued dedication in delivering outstanding innovation and tailored customer engagements.

“Two years ago, Juniper Networks realigned its channel program to spotlight partners that are driving innovative solutions for their highly skilled teams and end-customers.

“Each year, the Juniper Partner Awards provide us with an opportunity to honour these partners, and we are immensely proud of the calibre of this year’s award recipients who work tirelessly alongside us to challenge the status quo.”
