Colt wins three Global Carrier Awards at Capacity Europe
Colt received three awards at this week’s Global Carrier awards, hosted during the Capacity Europe event in Paris.
Capacity’s Global Carrier Awards awards recognise innovation, vision and excellence across the global and regional wholesale industry. They are independently judged by a panel of telecoms analysts, industry experts and the senior editorial team of Capacity magazine.
Colt was awarded Global Carrier Awards in the following categories:
• Best Asian project. DCNet, a data centre interconnect service, leverages SDN and NFV to better serve Asia’s rapidly growing data centre market.
• Best voice service innovation – developed market. VoiceYou allows a single caller to instantly and simultaneously reach from one up to an unlimited number of people, directly from the phone.
• Special Recognition Award: Best Strategic Acquisition. The acquisition of KVH in December 2014 – which now operates as part of the Colt brand – allowed Colt to benefit from an improved customer offer, larger presence in faster growth markets and cost and revenue synergies.
Colt was shortlisted in six Global Carrier categories in total, including Best pan-European wholesale carrier, Best European project and the Special Recognition Award for Corporate Social Responsibility.
