Layer3 Takes Lead In Juniper Network Expertise

Layer3, one of Nigeria’s fastest growing technology solution providers, in sticking to its commitment to providing best-of-breed solutions and customer service excellence, announced today that it has earned Juniper’s J-Partner Elite Certification in Advanced Network Infrastructure and Network Infrastructure. Juniper’s Elite Partner designation is limited to companies that have been chosen by Juniper and have met and exceeded stringent standards for customer satisfaction, personnel qualifications, training, and service. It is the highest level of accreditation for partners in Juniper’s J-Partner program. These new certifications are additions to Layer3’s previous Elite Certification in Advanced Network Security.

As an Elite Partner, Layer3 joins a select few companies, globally, able to offer its clients the full Juniper portfolio of networking and security solutions. Layer3’s Sales, Engineering, and Customer Support Engineers have met strict proficiency and certification requirements set by Juniper to achieve and maintain the Elite Partner status.

“We are very proud to be a member of Juniper’s top tier of enterprise solutions providers,” said Tony Ayabam, Layer3’s Executive Director of Operations, “more so that we are the only company in Africa to have achieved the Elite Partnership status in all three Juniper solution areas.”

Juniper Networks has developed and productized some of the industry’s most groundbreaking, disruptive innovations across every aspect of networking technology. They include a dedication to developing new, pure play IP solutions based on a unique single architecture, a single operating system, and a single software release train that ensures performance, reliability, and security at the scale that customers demand of their networks—without compromise.

“We have very rigorous standards when it comes to which original equipment manufacturers we choose to partner with. With the additional demand on enterprise and service provider IP networks caused by voice, video and Web-based ERP applications, today’s IP network must offer more redundancy, agility, quality-of-service (QoS) and security required from yesteryear’s carrier-class networks. Juniper’s leading innovative technology has proven to our technical and management teams that they provide a rock solid foundation at significantly competitive price points, with the most favorable total cost of ownership. For us, it is not about seeing how many certification logos we can fit on a brochure or into our website, but how well the solutions address our customers’ present and future requirements. Our clients view us as industry experts and as such it is our responsibility to investigate and provide the best solutions available from the best manufacturers out there” says Oyaje Idoko, Layer3’s CEO.
