Named Best Cloud Innovation, Best Strategic Acquisition and Best Wholesale Sales Team

 

London, 15 November, 2016 - Interoute, owner operator of one of Europe's largest most advanced networks and global cloud services platform, has been awarded for Best Cloud Innovation, Best Strategic Acquisition and Best Wholesale Sales Team in this year’s Capacity Global Carrier Awards.

Interoute accepted the awards at a ceremony in Paris on the 8th November. It was selected by a panel of leading analysts, industry experts and Capacity’s senior editorial team. Reflecting on the decision, the judging panel said that Interoute was “a consistent performer in its region, year in, year out.”

The company was acknowledged for its work supporting UEFA’s ICT infrastructure, hosting the business services needed to run some of the world’s most high profile football competitions. It was also commended for its acquisition of Easynet, the European managed services provider, to grow Interoute’s ICT services business and expand its market leading cloud capability in Europe and the UK.  

Furthermore, the wholesale sales team was championed for driving Interoute’s proposition from an ambitious project to the owner operator of one of Europe’s largest networks, providing customers with access to 17 Interoute Virtual Data Centre (VDC) zones to deploy in cities across Europe, the US and Asia.

“The Capacity Global Carrier Awards have become the most prestigious event in the wholesale telecoms calendar, setting the benchmark for customer excellence in our industry. We are delighted to see our strategic vision, commitment to innovation and the strength of our wholesale team acknowledged in this way." said Gareth Williams, CEO of Interoute.
