TOKYO, JAPAN — NTT Communications Corporation (NTT Com), the ICT solutions and international communications business within the NTT Group (TYO: 9432), announced today that it was named Operator of the Year, and was also recognized in the category of Wholesale Operator of the Year and The Connected Asia Award at the Asia Communication Awards (ACA) 2017 in Singapore on May 24th.
Launched in 2011 by Total Telecom, ACA recognizes the companies and individuals driving the success of the Asian based telecom industry to a global audience. A panel of telecom experts selected winners in 18 categories.
NTT Com was named Operator of the Year for the third time. The award recognizes that a provider demonstrated a strong service portfolio, investment in network and service development, a growing and satisfied customer base, and execution of a clear and ambitious strategic plan. “Many telcos have tried to transform their business and have ended up going backwards. NTT Communications on the other hand is inching its way into the new digital world,” said one judge.
Wholesale Operator of the Year is one of the most fiercely-contested at the Asia Communication Awards and NTT Com won this category for the second year in a row. The award recognizes NTT Com’s continuous investment and improvement in network infrastructure in APAC, such as launch of Asia Pacific Gateway (APG) submarine cable in October 2016 and Kizuna Submarine Cable-Laying vessel in March 2017, while keeping the high customer retention rate through its Tier-1 Global IP Network. One judge said NTT Com showed an “excellent approach to global engagement, which is the mark of a good operator.”
NTT Com received The Connected Asia Award for its IoT Platform. This award highlights NTT Com’s contribution to business transformation and productivity improvement of enterprise customers by a solution that fits in all use cases, leveraging the company’s globally deployed network, cloud and data center as well as its partnership with application platform providers and device vendors. “In terms of sheer scope, NTT Communications is the Connected Asia leader,” declared one member of the panel.
