In 1995 we introduced our NetWORKS As Advertised program, a testing service providing vendors with an objective evaluation before their new networking products are released to the general public. Vendors who successfully meet the NAA test criteria receive Miercom’s seal of approval.
There are numerous benefits to having network equipment that NetWORKS As Advertised:
1. Peace of mind
Your customers know that your product has to pass rigorous independent testing in the Miercom lab. They can be assured that your product truly NetWORKS as you advertise it.
2. Proof of performance
Your sales team has Miercom’s seal of approval to lean on when facing tough customers who want proof of your product’s performance.
The NAA seal of approval and framed award are valuable testimonials and marketing tools for your company.
4. In-depth analysis
Miercom provides you with a complete report of your product’s strengths and weaknesses, based on the testing performed.
5. Cost effective
