The Award was given for Gateway’s MPLS services on SEACOM. With its new MPLS network, Gateway can provide direct connectivity along the length of the East African coast from Kenya to South Africa, Mozambique, Tanzania, as well as West Africa, Europe and the US. This is the first and only fully redundant MPLS backbone on SEACOM serving the entire East African coast making high quality Africa to Africa networks a reality.
The GTB Innovation Awards are designed to honour innovative projects involving telecoms operators and service providers around the world, in association with their vendors and suppliers.
On receiving the Award, Mike Van den Bergh, CEO of Gateway Wholesale & Carrier Services commented:
“We’re very proud of the work we’ve done over the past year with SEACOM. As one of the first investors in the SEACOM project, it was very exciting to finally go live in August last year. Since then we have been busy securing the right telecommunications licenses to ensure we can continue to build the infrastructure that connects businesses and consumers across the continent. It’s great to be recognised for our efforts and we will continue to work with partners such as SEACOM to connect Africa.”
