Colt Technology Services, the leading information delivery platform, has been honoured at the 2013 Capacity Awards by being named the Best Pan-European Wholesale Provider. Colt was praised for its delivery of products and services developed in response to customers’ requirements.The Capacity Global Carrier Awards celebrate innovation, vision and excellence in the global telecoms market and are a prestigious event in the Operator calendar. Now in its eighth year, the 2013 awards attracted more entries and higher profile attendance than ever before with over 300 of the most influential industry executives congregating at the Hotel Okura, Amsterdam for the ceremony on 19th November.

Colt was recognised for its outstanding dedication and services delivered for channel partners and Operator customers over the past year. In the judges’ view Colt “has had another busy and successful year, which has seen the development of its indirect channel strategy as well as the launch of its cloud storage service for value added resellers. Furthermore, it has successfully integrated managed services provider Thinkgrid into its business and service portfolio, under the brand Colt Ceano.” The judges were also impressed with Colt’s 100G Ethernet offering.

Picking winners from a record 150 entrants was facilitated by a structured scoring regime designed to ensure maximum possible objectivity. Judge Professor Dieter Lange stated “the new marking system allows a very distinct evaluation of the carrier initiatives and ensures that all relevant aspects are taken into account.”

Francois Eloy, Executive Vice President of Colt Communication Services, said: “’It’s a great honour to receive this award. It reflects both our commitment to bring innovative services to market and the emphasis we place on world class delivery. Hundreds of thousands of people rely on our network every day across Europe and we will continue to work hard to deliver beyond expectations for our customers.
