Sponsored by Businesswire

(now part of CommScope
via acquisition) announced today that it has added four new
specializations to its Ruckus
Ready Partner Program
including Support, Managed Service Provider
(MSP), Federal and CBRS. Added to better serve its channel, the new
specializations give partners extensive benefits and incentives,
training, and engagement support, opening up new sales opportunities and
access to larger and more profitable customer opportunities.

Ruckus’ 100-percent channel focus, leading technology, and award-winning
Ruckus Ready Partner Program set the foundation for successful customer
relationships. The additional specializations empower Ruckus’ partners
with opportunities to build stronger, more strategic relationships with
end customers and enhance credibility through technical support training
and certifications, allowing them to grow their businesses in new

“Ruckus Partner Specialization programs will enable us to uncover new
highly profitable customer opportunities for MSP and Support services,”
said Jon Novakowski, CVO, Vector Tech Group. “These Specialization
Programs are further testament that Ruckus invests in its channel and
provides unique programs—with targeted training and incentives—to
benefit its channel base. We look forward to extending our partnership
with Ruckus in the years to come.”

The new specializations include:

  • Support identifies leading regional partners that define, sell
    and deliver support services to end customers for their Ruckus network
    switching and wireless solutions. Qualified and certified Support
    partners receive deep discounts and performance-based rebate
    incentives, enabling partners to invest in capability and
    infrastructure to achieve excellent customer experience, leading to
    high profitability and customer satisfaction.
  • MSP recognizes partners with expertise in delivering and
    managing services based on Ruckus solutions, as well as
    Outcome-as-a-Service to the customers. The program provides partners
    with additional product discounts to solve customer technology needs
    and financial solutions to provide subscription-based
    Network-as-a-Service solutions. This removes hurdles on capital
    expenditure in the sales engagement. Since managed services require a
    wide variety of capabilities, the MSP specialization provides partners
    with a collaboration platform for critical sales opportunities.
  • Federal recognizes partners with expertise in selling,
    deploying and supporting Ruckus into the U.S. Federal Government.
    Additionally, Ruckus SKUs that are compliant with the Federal Trade
    Agreement Acts (TAA) are available to partners via an authorized
    Ruckus distributor.
  • CBRS develops and recognizes partners with expertise in
    selling, deploying and supporting Ruckus CBRS LTE solutions. These
    partners can deliver Private LTE solutions for enterprises in markets
    such as education, large public venue, retail, hospitality,
    industrial, federal, health care and others to enable the highest
    quality wireless connections for mission-critical applications. This
    specialization is available to partners in the U.S.

The MSP, Federal and CBRS specializations can all be added onto an
existing level of the Ruckus Ready Partner Program, either Elite or
Select. The support specialization is available to Elite and
Distribution partners as well as MSP Specialists.

“We are committed to our channel partners and are always looking for new
ways to provide a world-class partner experience for our solution
providers,” said Raelyn Kritzer, vice president of global partner
programs, Ruckus Networks. “The additional capabilities available
through these four new specializations give our partners yet another
valuable way to expand their skillsets, be recognized for their
competency and rewarded for their investment in our solutions, ensuring
a mutually profitable relationship.”
