Our awards

“In 2020 we significantly grew the number of our active Extreme Networks partners in the EMEA region and increase our sales by 50%. This shows the key role momentum partners play within the partner landscape. As medium businesses, they act proactively, adapt aggressively and implement new innovations faster, and can therefore sometimes generate disproportionate sales. In the current business climate, these are all decisive advantages.”

Small hotel: Sarah

Sarah owns a small hotel, and making sure guests are happy keeps her up at night. She understands that a high-quality mobile experience for guests is important for business.

“Whether travelling for business or pleasure, guests expect a high-quality Wi-Fi experience the moment they walk into the hotel. And if they’re unable to connect, whether it’s to send a business email or FaceTime with the family, it’s frustrating and detracts from their experience.”

Hotel chain: Hassan

Hassan is the CIO for a large hotel chain. Ensuring a high-quality mobile experience for guests and connectivity for day-to-day operations is essential to the success of the business.

“Internet connectivity is no longer an amenity. It has become an integral part of travellers’ daily lives and a basic expectation.”

Exhibition centre: Katarina
