Megaport and Aqua Comms Partnership Wins Infrastructure Innovation Award

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.
