Ruckus Wireless rewards EMEA Wi-Fi channel partners

Ruckus Wireless has announced the winners of this year’s EMEA BiG DOGs channel partner awards. Top honours were presented to Purdicom in the distributor category and Ask4 in the reseller category. The awards ceremony was held in Rome, during the Ruckus BiG DOGs EMEA 2015 channel partner conference.

Ruckus Wireless has an extensive network of channel partners throughout EMEA. The annual BiG DOGs conference in Rome brings together partners to exchange best practices, learn more about the latest Ruckus Smart Wi-Fi solutions and receive excellent technical, sales and marketing support. The awards showcase the achievements of Ruckus partners as they continue to drive sales and increase the Ruckus Wireless footprint across the region.

Purdicom picked up two awards, North European Distributor of the Year and Overall EMEA Distributor of the Year for 2014, which reflects its long standing and successful relationship with Ruckus Wireless. Distributors Allnet, Alcadis and Westcon South Africa also received awards, emphasising the quality and reach of the Ruckus distribution network in the region.

The North European Reseller of the Year and Overall EMEA Reseller of the Year 2014 were awarded to Ask4, which has expanded its influence considerably over the last 12 months, making significant inroads for Ruckus in the student accommodation sector. The other winners in the reseller category were Odin Group, BMA and ThreeSixFive, all responsible for increasing Ruckus Wireless presence in the EMEA enterprise WLAN market.

James Calderbank, director of enterprise sales, EMEA, Ruckus Wireless, said: “Our channel partners have continued to take advantage of the high demand for enterprise WLAN solutions, ensuring strong uptake of Ruckus Smart Wi-Fi technology across EMEA. The BiG DOGs show in Rome was the perfect stage to present these awards and celebrate the achievements of the channel. We continue to strongly invest in relationships with our distributors and resellers globally, highlighted by our award-winning BiG DOGs partner program.”

Ruckus Wireless will be holding two more BiG DOGs channel partner conferences this year: one in Singapore in May to showcase the APAC market; and one in Las Vegas in October to cover off the North American market.
