PHILADELPHIA--(Business Wire)--
Comcast Corporation, a global media and technology company, was named a 2013
Channel Champion by CRN in the category of Best in Network Connectivity Services
at an awards ceremony during the XChange Solution Provider conference on March
12, 2013 in Orlando, Florida. CRN`s annual Channel Champions awards are based on
the results of a series of surveys conducted with top solution providers. The
awards are presented to vendors receiving the best ratings in the areas of
technological satisfaction, support satisfaction and financial benefits. 

The CRN Channel Champions survey is the largest and broadest-based technology
integrator market study in the industry, measuring the overall perceptions of
vendor products and services by IT solution providers. The end result is a list
of the most partner-friendly vendors in the channel, serving as a valuable
resource for technology integrators when evaluating vendors and their programs. 

"This month marks two years since Comcast implemented its channel program, and
this award is validation that our partners recognize our hard work and devotion
to the channel," said Craig Schlagbaum, vice president indirect channels at
Comcast Business Services. "Our channel partners awarded Comcast this honor
because of the company`s strong brand name, its extensive and reliable network
infrastructure and the value of the products and services it offers. In an
extremely competitive market, the CRN Channel Champions distinction sets us
apart from other vendors by recognizing Comcast`s cutting-edge technology,
reliable support and superior value, and it demonstrates to the industry that
our partners consider us a best-in-class network service provider." 

"To receive a Channel Champion award is a distinct honor," said Kelley Damore,
senior vice president and editorial director, CRN. "The win is a testament to a
vendor`s dedication to supporting and maintaining a strong channel program. As
such, this award is a direct result of their ability to develop and grow solid,
mutually beneficial relationships with partners. We congratulate these leading
technology vendors on this recognition." 

A sample list of Channel Champions award winners and the related study will be
published in the April 2013 issue of CRN magazine and online at
