Global IT components distributor, EPS Global, has been honoured with Edgecore Network's Outstanding Partner of the Year Award, during a presentation that took place at the Edgecore Partner Summit in Hsinchu, Taiwan.
This is the second accolade they have received from a vendor in recent years, having been awarded the Global Distributor of the Year title by Finisar, the world's largest supplier of optical communications, at their Sales Conference in California in June 2015. This is an award that spans 2 years and is the third EPS Global has received from the optics industry leader.
George Tchaparian, CEO of Edgecore Networks, presented the award to EPS Global's Sales Director for EMEA, John Lynch. Edgecore Networks, a wholly owned subsidiary of Accton, the leading network ODM, is the leader in open networking providing a full line of 1GbE, 10GbE, 25GbE, 40GbE, 50GbE, and 100GbE open and OCP switches that offer choice of NOS and SDN software for data center, telecommunications, and enterprise network use cases.
John Lynch, Sales Director EMEA, commented on the win, “This is quite an honor for the EPS Global team. Winning the Outstanding Partner Award from Edgecore this year, along with the Global Distributor of the Year Award from Finisar for the past 4 consecutive years is an important measure of our commitment and partnership with both vendors. On behalf of the entire EPS team we extend our appreciation and look forward to building on our mutual success.”
