Stratosphere Networks today announced it has been recognized by UBM Channel as a member of CRN's second annual Next-Gen 250 list. The CRN Next-Gen 250 highlights up and coming VARs that have recently entered the market with a smart and different approach to solution selling and integration.
This Next-Gen 250 list is a snapshot of solution providers who are zeroing in on lucrative and emerging technologies, among them cloud computing, mobility, virtualization, unified communications, business analytics and business intelligence.
"We are proud to be on the CRN Next-Gen 250 list of IT industry up-and-comers," said Gary Peeke, vice president of sales at Stratosphere Networks. "We are continuously transforming our services and solutions to meet and exceed the ever-changing, diverse business needs for all industries."
"The channel is constantly evolving as existing models are being tested and new ones are created," said Kelley Damore, VP, Editorial Director, UBM Channel. "All the companies on this year's list have only been in business since 1999. Some have transformed their business to meet the demands of a changing market. Others didn't have the baggage of transitioning from hardware to services to recurring revenue and have been able to build a business on an entirely new model and leverage new technology platforms. Regardless of how they got here, we congratulate each company for making this year's list."
