Leading Channel Publication Recognizes Cloud4Wi for its Growth and Innovative Technology

SAN FRANCISCO – July 28, 2016 Cloud4Wi, the industry leader for advanced guest Wi-Fi, today announced that CRN, a brand of The Channel Company, recognized the company by naming it to both the Emerging Vendors list and the Cool Networking Startups list. These annual lists recognize recently founded, up-and-coming technology suppliers who are shaping the future of the IT channel through unique technological innovations. In addition to celebrating these standout companies, the Emerging Vendors list also serves as a valuable resource for solution providers looking to expand their portfolios with cutting-edge technology.

“The select group of companies on our Emerging Vendors list have already made a name for themselves in their short time in the IT community, introducing leading-edge technologies with the potential to transform their segments of the IT market,” said Robert Faletra, CEO of The Channel Company. “These tech suppliers are quickly making their mark on the industry and are the ones solution providers should watch in 2016.
