Nuvias will work with Juniper to identify key vertical markets and geographies for partners and provide them with the skills to transform their customers’ data centres with Juniper’s next-generation networking and security platforms.

Nuvias will focus on partner recruitment, accreditation and sales enablement, providing value-added services such as solution events, training, lead generation, and campaign materials.

“Nuvias is excited by this new partnership with Juniper, a pioneer in networking innovation, performance and security. The strength of our commitment will be demonstrated through a dedication to partner enablement, services and solutions that can generate new opportunities and business,” said Paul Eccleston, CEO of Nuvias.

“We are equipping partners with the necessary skills to pursue opportunities independently, generate additional revenues, and deliver innovative services to their customers. Juniper invests in partners that bring in new business and this agreement presents a fantastic opportunity for the channel.”

High-performance network automation, SDN and intelligent, software-defined security will play a key role in organisations’ Digital Transformation strategies, and together Juniper Networks and Nuvias will help partners take advantage of the burgeoning opportunity.

“We are delighted to be working with Nuvias, whose strengths in value-added networking and security distribution perfectly complement our strategic focus and solutions portfolio,” said Kristian Kerr, head of channel, alliances & commercial, EMEA, Juniper Networks. “Nuvias’ approach reflects the dynamic IT landscape, while being able to consistently deliver the highest levels of capability, accreditation, sales, marketing, services and operational excellence to Juniper’s partners across EMEA.”
