SALEM, N.H., March 26, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Enterasys Networks, a Siemens Enterprise Communications Company, has been named to CRN's 2013 Partner Programs Guide and was awarded a 5-Star Partner Program rating for its Advantage Partner Program. This underscores Enterasys' deep commitment to the channel, extensive Partner support and tools, and exceptional sales and technical training. This award comes on the heels of Charlie Van Pelt's recent honor in CRN Magazine's list of Channel Chiefs.

The Enterasys partner community continued to grow in 2012, including more than 85 strategic new partners, with overall partner revenue increasing 27 percent.  "We are proud of our Advantage Partner Program and because of its success, we are rapidly growing through our channel," said Charlie Van Pelt, director of North American channels for Enterasys. "The program is built around the principles of profitability, simplicity, opportunity and commitment, and we are dedicated to the continued acceleration of our partners' growth and success."

CRN's Partner Program Guide recognizes vendors who have channel programs and derive a portion of their sales through the indirect IT Channel. The 5-Star Partner Program rating recognizes the elite subset of Partner Program Guide vendors that give solution providers the best partnering elements in their channel programs. It is assembled by UBM Channel Research and the objective criteria includes vendor investments in program offerings, partner profitability, partner training, education and support, marketing programs and resources, sales support and communication.

The 2013 Partner Programs Guide and 5-Star Partners listing will be featured on CRN.com and in the March 2013 issue of CRN.
