The award was presented at Ethernet Expo Europe event in London which assembled dozens of experts from the service provider, supplier, and analyst communities to explore the hottest trends in the market.

“We are very proud to win this award which reflects the investment COLT is making to help customers realise the benefits from Ethernet networking,” said Dr Alireza Mahmoodshahi, Chief Technology Officer at COLT. “The deployment of our Next Generation Ethernet platform across Europe, our Global Reach capability to the USA and interconnects with other carriers are initiatives that have kept COLT’s product portfolio at the forefront of innovation."
