ANAHEIM, Calif.-ZyXEL Communications, a leading provider of secure broadband networking, Internet access and connected home products, today announced that CRN, a brand of The Channel Company, has recognized ZyXEL in its 2016 Network Connectivity Partner Program Guide. This annual guide highlights service providers, infrastructure providers and master agents whose telecom, cloud and connectivity offerings help partners navigate and succeed in the age of IT-Telecom convergence.

“The companies in this year’s 2016 Network Connectivity Partner Program Guide have built partner programs that provide real, tangible value and support to its members,” explained Robert Faletra, CEO, The Channel Company. “These vendors offer impressive product portfolios, gold-standard marketing and sales assistance, and the high level of training solution providers need to grow their Network Connectivity revenue. We are pleased to introduce this year’s guide to help channel partners find and connect with these outstanding technology suppliers.”

“We are particularly proud to have been selected for inclusion in CRN’s Network Connectivity Partner Program Guide this year because it highlights our dedication to helping our channel partners grow their businesses and increase their revenues through the new ZyXEL Freedom Program,” explained Jeff Gallifent, Channel Chief and Director of Channel Sales for ZyXEL. “ZyXEL’s comprehensive portfolio of networking products and solutions, combined with the benefits provided through our robust, but simplified partner program truly gives resellers a vendor partner that is dedicated to helping them succeed. This type of vendor dedication to the channel is becoming increasingly rare as many of our competitors continue to pull back from the channel to shift their focus to online sales.”
