Frequently Asked Questions
What are the Elevate Awards?
The Elevate Awards recognize network innovators around the globe leveraging Juniper technology to deliver exceptional experiences for their organizations and customers.
Who can submit a nomination?
Juniper customers, partners, or employees may submit nominations.
What are the awards categories?
We recognize outstanding achievements in 8 categories:
- AI Innovation
- Data Center of the Future
- Early Adopter
- Empowering Change
- Experience First
- Game-Changing WAN
- Security Excellence
- Service Provider Transformation
What if I don’t have time to complete a substantial nomination?
As we receive dozens of quality nominations, we request that submissions to be as comprehensive as possible. To best represent all nominees, the Juniper Advocacy Team will also interview each account team and customer nominee for a brief 1-on-1 conversation to capture additional details.
What are the eligibility requirements?
All nominated companies must have Juniper products in production in their IT infrastructure. Nominated companies’ representatives must be willing and authorized to participate in public-facing, Juniper-sponsored marketing activities--including a written success story--showcasing the initiative. Public sector nominations are welcome.
How does the judging process work?
Companies may be nominated in multiple categories. A panel of Juniper executives and ambassadors will determine the finalists and winners. Scoring is based on the degree to which nominees’ projects have impacted their organizations, customers, and/or communities. Higher scores will be given to Juniper customers who can demonstrate quantifiable outcomes. All honorees will be featured on juniper.net and included in social media activities.
What is the time commitment?
In general, customers will be asked to participate in a 30-minute interview about their organization, Juniper implementation, and business outcomes. They will be asked to review/approve the resulting public-facing success story and provide images. Finalists may be asked to participate in a video, which would take approximately 1 hour of time. And honorees are invited to attend the virtual event celebration.
When is the awards ceremony?
All honorees and their teams will be celebrated November 16, 2022 during the virtual Juniper Elevate Awards event. The exact time will be announced.
