Megaport’s partnership with Aqua Comms has been celebrated at the Telecoms Innovation Summit and Awards, organised by Global Telecoms Business. Together with Aqua Comms’ Jol Paling, I picked up the award for Infrastructure Innovation on behalf of Megaport.
The Infrastructure Innovation award celebrates a partnership between a vendor and operator that delivers a significant advance in connectivity. Megaport and Aqua Comms joined forces in 2016 to provision a route between North American and European data centres, connecting users to leading cloud service providers across international regions. The Megaport Software Defined Network became accessible through Aqua Comms’ America-Europe Connect (AEConnect) system, connecting a transatlantic subsea cable network that connects New York to Dublin and London. This collaboration has added value to our Ecosystem by enabling customers to access a wider scope of capacity on AEConnect via our Software Defined Network. Enterprise customers now have an enhanced ability to achieve multicloud deployment over multiple regions via a transatlantic subsea cable network.
The Megaport team has worked closely with Aqua Comms to deliver a connectivity solution that lowers the barrier of entry for customers, strengthening the capabilities of their international networks. Our partnership has resulted in a system that transcends transatlantic borders to deliver connectivity from one major region to another. We’re humbled to be recognised for our pursuits in the advancement of connectivity. Aqua Comms is a strong and reliable partner with whom we’re delighted to be sharing this award.
