Ever since Colt’s very first dig in the City of London thirty years ago, we’ve been known for shaking up the telecommunications industry.
Innovation is in our DNA and developing the Colt IQ Network is central to how we are delivering services that are faster, smarter and more sustainable.
With a full programme of initiatives that are driving towards ultra-high capacity and more environmentally sustainable networking, we are taking ground-breaking steps to prepare for long-term change and build resilience for Colt and our customers.
We are thrilled that our industry-leading innovation efforts were recognised last night at the NGON & DCI Awards, as Colt was named Most Innovative Service Provider of the Year 2022.
Held in Barcelona this week, the NGON & DCI World event takes place every year and is the only event for the optical networking community. It is a global go-to meeting place for the industry and the Colt team had an amazingly interactive and informative week, discussing everything from the current technology to exciting innovations that are on the horizon.
Over the last couple of years, Colt has driven several sustainable innovation initiatives, including deploying 800G technology in L-band and enabling 400GE services across both EU and APAC regions. These were truly industry-firsts, and in the same year, we also went beyond trials to deploy next-gen optical technology in Colt IQNet optical network. This has reduced our carbon footprint, space and power, meaning we are ensuring sustainable growth that’s better for the environment.
Below you can see Prasanna Sundaram, Associate Director, Optical Network Engineering delivering his keynote session at the event, where he discussed these pioneering initiatives. Congratulations Prasanna and team!
