“Catalyst Telecom has been a strategic partner of ours since 2007, and we continue to see great opportunity in the future," said Doug DiNunzio, director of distribution strategy, channel enablement at Aruba Networks. “We are thrilled at the level of growth we have achieved with them and congratulate them on this honor."
Aruba said that, in 2010, Catalyst Telecom generated the most revenue of all its distributors in North America. John Black, president of Catalyst Telecom, said much of the growth comes thanks to a focus on the data market.
“Aruba has been a great partner of ours, delivering products that enable resellers to streamline their end-user customers’ communications solutions," said Black. “This award demonstrates the hard work put forth from our team and the strength of our partnership with Aruba. What’s more, it is a testament to our solid relationship with our reseller partners."
Aruba specializes in fields including unified communications and video; its gear works with connectivity services including Ethernet and Wi-Fi. Catalyst Telecom’s manufacturer partners include Aruba Networks, Juniper Networks, Extreme Networks and Avaya. On Monday, ScanSource earned top honors as Polycom’s No. 1 distributor worldwide and in North America.
