"In tough times a lot of companies have cut back on what they can offer the channel, and we haven't seen that in Cisco," said Bill Smeltzer, executive vice president and CTO at Focus Technology Solutions, a Seabrook, N.H.-based infrastructure solution provider. "We've had no major problems with the channel relationship."
Juniper also bested Cisco in quality and reliability of products (100.4 to Cisco's 98.2) and came within less than 1 percentage point in several others. Should Cisco be watching its back? Maybe, maybe not, said VARs.
