Westcon has expanded its partnership with Juniper Networks to include its Mist Systems portfolio across the EMEA market.
An existing distributor of Juniper, Westcon can now offer the vendor's AI-driven wireless LAN portfolio of products across selected EMEA countries.
In Europe, the deal covers Germany, Portugal and Spain.
Juniper acquired Mist Systems last year in a deal worth $405m, expanding its footprint in the cloud-managed segment of the wireless networking market.
"Juniper Mist's advanced cloud portfolio is a great expansion of Juniper Networks' solutions and services and can influence the way enterprises manage their wireless and wired computing environments for years to come," said Rene Klein, SVP at Westcon Europe.
"We are very excited to be a part of this journey. Our European business development experts bring a lot of experience to the table when it comes to Juniper's portfolio and our go-to-market approach will allow us to bring significant value to this relationship. We really look forward to on-boarding our channel network for this innovative AI-based solution."
Juniper dropped Westcon as an EMEA-wide distributor in 2018, shrinking its remit to only three countries - Spain, Germany and the Netherlands, after signing a new pan-EMEA deal with value-added rival Nuvias.
Commenting on the new agreement, Juniper's head of channels in EMEA, Sander Groot, said: "Westcon is a long-standing value-added distribution partner worldwide. With an experienced team, strong standing in the market and dedication, Westcon now can also tap into Juniper Mist, which can open up exciting opportunities for our channel and our customers."
