As demand for Extreme Networks’ software-driven wireless solutions continues to increase, the company has introduced the ExtremeWireless specialization program. The program further enables global channel partners to deliver the wireless solutions customers require in order to increase productivity and responsiveness and extend applications beyond the wired network. The announcement follows enhancements to the Extreme Partner Network program launched in October 2015 and offers increased differentiation and rewards to qualified channel partners with the creation of a wireless specialization badge.
Intended to enhance the wireless solution skillset and create deep understanding of the fundamentals of the technology, the program provides training beyond the ExtremeWireless portfolio. Partners will also learn how to install, configure and troubleshoot other wireless networks when securing the Industry Standard Wireless Certificate (CWTS/CWNA). Earning a specialisation badge gives eligible partners market recognition for their technology expertise and also rewards them for their investment and dedication in selling and helping deliver Extreme Networks solutions to customers.
Eligible Silver, Gold, Platinum and Diamond partners worldwide can apply for the program by submitting a specialisation request form. Qualifying partners will receive a specialisation badge that is valid for one year. In addition to training sessions, partners with a badge will gain access to exclusive wireless content, including semi-annual webinars with key wireless experts and an annual roundtable discussion around Extreme’s global partner conferences.
