Enterprise network equipment vendor Ruckus, owned by Commscope, has named Dicker Data NZ as the New Zealand - Australia distributor of the year, at its Mini Dogs roadshow held in Hobart, Tasmania.
Managed network and security services provider Nextro from Auckland took out the Best of Breed channel award at the same event.
Ruckus ANZ regional sales manager David Fenner told CRN NZ that this year's Mini Dogs featured a very strong representation from New Zealand.
Crown-owned educational communications tech provider Network for Learning (N4L) took out Partner of the Year at the Ruckus awards.
N4L's enterprise architect Clayton Hubbard was also honoured, and awarded the Spirit of Ruckus.
Nextro managing director Martyn Levy said the award is solid recognition for his company's engineering and solutions teams' accomplishments over the last year and a half.
Dicker Data bought Exeed in New Zealand a year ago, gaining access to the latter distributor's Ruckus product portfolio.
