8. Juniper Networks
Juniper Networks had a pair of very satisfying finishes on the Technical Satisfaction portion of its product categories in this year's Channel Champs results. The Sunnyvale, Calif.-based networking vendor did finish second to market leader Cisco in terms of impressing partners with its enterprise networking gear, but for Juniper, two top 10 overall finishes in Technical Criteria was quite an accomplishment.
Overall Technical Satisfaction Score: 85.3 (2nd place, Enterprise Networking Hardware)
