C&W NETWORKS WINS WORLDWIDE INNOVATION AWARD FOR WHOLESALE SERVICE

First-time recognition for leading the industry’s most innovative and successful project partnerships between operators and vendors

C&W Networks, part  of C&W Communications (C&W), was recently recognized for outstanding industry leadership in wholesale service innovation as it won the Wholesale Service Innovation worldwide award category in the Global Telecom Business (GTB) Telecoms Innovation Awards 2017 in London.

C&W Networks, which provides world-leading wholesale telecommunications products and services to over 40 countries in the Caribbean and Latin America, was chosen from a group of prestigious companies for providing exceptional value-added solutions to an enterprise customer, in the banking industry, that operates throughout the North American region.

“I’m proud to accept this award on behalf of the C&W Networks team for leading the industry’s most innovative and successful partnerships between operators and vendors,” said John Reid, CEO of C&W Communications, picking up the award. “As part of our commitment to innovation, we’re continually evaluating the rapidly evolving marketplace to determine what solutions are needed to help customers meet their business and communications goals. We are proud that our hard work has resulted in such acclaim,” added Reid.

C&W Networks’ project consisted of providing a Canadian telecom and their end customer, a Canadian financial institution, with a next-generation MPLS network to implement a technology plan in the Caribbean. The network includes six classes of service and diverse primary and backup fiber optic circuits, as well as satellite services where additional diversity was required or where fiber optic diversity was not available. The project goal, as set out by the end customer, was to migrate the customer’s extensive network of locations throughout the Caribbean to this new state-of-the-art network platform in a timeframe of 18 months, including completion of a proof of concept and pilot in addition to the full-scale migration.
