Award season

Picking up a couple of gongs…

These prestigious awards, organised by the much-respected GTB magazine, celebrate the joint work of vendors and operators in innovative projects that better serve the telecom industry’s end customers.

I had two clients up on stage celebrating.

OMC Power and Bharti Infratel picked up an award in the most innovative consumer technology category for building micropower plants in rural India.  These power plants provide electricity as an OPEX to Bharti Infratel’s off-grid towers.

And Liquid Telecom with its partner Ekinops were named as “Best Fixed Network Infrastructure Innovation” for building Africa’s longest single span fibre links.

Congrats to all the winners – but especially those I work for!!
