Juniper Networks, a Sunnyvale, California-based networking company, has announced new enhancements to its Juniper Partner Advantage Program (JPA). Starting January, a new top-tier level of the partner program will be introduced. The vendor’s most successful and closely aligned partners will be able to leverage the Elite Plus level for superior support, investment, and rewards, along with dedicated business development and demand generation resources.
Juniper has also expanded the Champions program, adding role-based training journeys for both technical and sales teams, as well as access to collaborative workspaces, communities, demo platforms and events. New virtual sales pods create a shared workspace for partners and Juniper staff to communicate in real-time on account plans. A new Learning Academy platform has also been introduced.
JPA 2022 builds on the investments made in recent years with the acquisition of Mist Technologies, 128 Technology, Apstra and Netrounds.
“We believe our acquisition strategy and innovations have created the most compelling portfolio of networking solutions available today,” said Gordon Mackintosh, Vice President of Global Channel & Virtual Sales at Juniper Networks. “By bringing that spirit of innovation into the partner program, with a new elite tier and enhanced community, we plan to see rapid growth and expansion next year and beyond.”
The enhancements are designed to reward loyal and successful partners while also improving interaction between Juniper and its partners.
