SAN JOSE, Calif., March 26, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Extreme Networks, Inc. (Nasdaq: EXTR) today announced it has been awarded a 5-Star rating in The Channel Company's CRN 2015 Partner Program Guide. This annual directory is the definitive listing of technology vendors that solution providers rely on to deliver products through the IT channel. The 5-Star Partner Program rating recognizes an elite subset of companies that offer solution providers the best partnering elements in their channel programs.

"Extreme Networks is proud to once again receive the 5 star partner program rating from CRN.

The honor is the latest in a series of accolades for Extreme's channel program. Most recently, Gault was named to the prestigious list of the 2015 CRN Channel Chiefs and was recognized as one of the 50 Most Influential Leaders.
