EXETER, RI--(Marketwire - Apr 3, 2012) - Carousel Industries, a leader in data networking and converged communications, announced that it has been recognized by Aruba Networks, a leader in next-generation network access solutions for the mobile enterprise, as the Partner of the Year at the vendor's second annual Americas Partner Summit in Las Vegas.
With a strong mobility strategy and insight into the emerging bring-your-own-device (BYOD) trend, Carousel has worked with Aruba to ensure customers are getting the best solutions available to enable their own workforces to not only be more productive, but also more accessible from anywhere and from any device. Aruba recognized Carousel for its achievements in mobility and BYOD accreditations and revenue-generating business plan.
"We are pleased to be recognized for our hard work by Aruba Networks. It speaks volumes about our team's commitment to Aruba and our vision surrounding the mobility and BYOD trends," said Bill Annino, vice president of the data technologies group at Carousel Industries. "Over the three years we have been a member of the Aruba PartnerEdge Program, we have succeeded in growing our business and have driven forward our strategic plan with the help of Aruba."
"Aruba Networks has recognized Carousel Industries with the Americas Partner of the Year Award for building a solid strategy for mobility and BYOD, and then executing successfully on it," said Robert Bruce, vice president of worldwide channel sales at Aruba. "Carousel has become an invaluable partner in developing effective customer-oriented solutions around Aruba's offerings."
This year marks the second year in a row that Carousel has won an award at the annual Aruba Networks Partner Summit. Last year, Carousel was recognized for strong revenue and business acceleration with Aruba by winning the Growth Partner of the Year Award.
