MT nominated for cloud award

Firm tilts at Telco accolade

An Island telecoms company has been shortlisted for a prestigious award.

Manx Telecom is in the running for the Best Telco Cloud NFV/SDN Project accolade at this year's Telco Cloud Awards.

It follows the company's project to upgrade the Island's fixed-line phone network to a software based, cloud computing platform.

The firm has become one of the first operators in Europe to run live services over a fully shared Software Defined Network (SDN) and Network Function Virtualisation (NFV) architecture.

The seventh Telco Cloud expo is hosted in London next week at an event with more than 50 guest speakers.

MT are up against AT&T and Colt Technology Services for the award.
