NetStrategy achieves Extreme Networks Black Diamond status

17 Apr 2019

NetStrategy has achieved Black Diamond status in the Extreme Networks Partner Program and is the first partner to reach this level in the AsiaPacific region. 

Extreme’s Black Diamond Partner status recognises partners with additional revenue and training incentives for building their capacity and resources to support Extreme’s networking solutions.

''We''re proud that NetStrategy has reached Black Diamond status with Extreme Networks. This achievement is an acknowledgement of our team’s ability to implement and support the Extreme Networks technologies within our customer’s IT environments,'' says NetStrategy CEO and founder James Boyle.

“The accreditation gives our clients another reason to have confidence that NetStrategy will deliver the right solution based on Extreme’s networking products from the wireless edge right through to the core and data centre. While a lot of integrators say they can deliver, there’s only about one in twenty in the region who have the expertise to configure and fine-tune wireless properly and we are proud to be one.''

NetStrategy has been an Extreme Networks partner for more than a decade. 

In March 2019, after achieving Master Specialisations in Extreme’s Smart OmniEdge and Automated Campus solutions, NetStrategy was awarded Black Diamond status. 

Technology in Extreme’s Smart OmniEdge portfolio addresses all aspects of connecting, securing and managing the enterprise network edge. 

The Automated Campus specialisation requires expertise in Extreme’s wired and wireless hardware and applications, as well as its Extreme Management Center platform.

''Commitment to our clients is our number one priority at NetStrategy, closely followed by the personal development and training needs of our staff. Investing in the skills development and industry accreditation of our people has given us broad and deep expertise in technology infrastructure - and also ensured we have great staff retention and client loyalty,'' adds Boyle.

“We congratulate James Boyle and his team,” says Extreme Networks channel sales director John Boladian. 

“The elevation of NetStrategy to Black Diamond Partner status recognises their long-term commitment to Extreme Networks, our products and services and the significant investment they’ve made in technical training and accreditation. While Extreme Networks is at the forefront of networking technology, we rely on partners like NetStrategy to deliver exceptional solutions and outcomes for customers.”
