Carrier Access IT Recognized for Excellence in Managed IT Services

Des Moines – IA, February 20, 2019 – Carrier Access IT announced today that CRN®, a brand of The Channel Company, has named Carrier Access IT to its 2019 Managed Service Provider (MSP) 500 list in the Elite 150 category. This annual list recognizes North American solution providers with innovative approaches to managed services. These services help customers improve operational efficiencies, maximize return on IT investments, and continuously help them navigate the complexities of IT solutions.

Managed service providers are integral to the success of businesses everywhere. They empower companies to implement and operate complex technologies while staying within their budgets and keeping focus on their core business. CRN’s MSP 500 list identifies the most groundbreaking managed service organizations, with advanced solutions that have endless potential for growth.

This annual list is divided into three categories: the MSP Pioneer 250, recognizing companies with business models weighted toward managed services and largely focused on the SMB market; the MSP Elite 150, recognizing large, data center-focused MSPs with a strong mix of on-premises and off-premises services; and the Managed Security 100, recognizing MSPs focused primarily on off-premises, cloud-based security services.

“We are thrilled to be recognized on the Elite 150 List for CRN’s Managed Service Provider 500 list,” said Ben Choate, Director of Managed Services for Carrier Access IT. “Our proactive communication, cutting-edge solutions and industry-leading engineering talent provides total network peace of mind for our clients.”

“Capable MSPs enable companies to take their cloud computing to the next level, streamline spending, effectively allocate limited resources and navigate the vast field of available technologies,” said Bob Skelley, CEO of The Channel Company. “The companies on CRN’s 2019 MSP 500 list stand out for their innovative services, excellence in adapting to customers’ changing needs and demonstrated ability to help businesses get the most out of their IT investments.”

The MSP500 list will be featured in the February 2019 issue of CRN and online at
