Neutrona Named Best Latin American Wholesale Carrier at Global Carrier Awards
MIAMI--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Neutrona Networks, a leading neutral and independent carrier in Latin America, was named the region’s best wholesale carrier at the 2016 Global Carrier Awards, sponsored by Capacity Media. Neutrona was cited for offering market-leading reliability and diversity for the international carrier industry, combined with an unsurpassed passion for technological innovation across the Latin American market.
“We believed that we could achieve this high level of quality and customer experience despite the challenges presented by operating in Latin America and we have now proven that, not only to our customers and vendors, but to the entire industry.”
“We feel it’s a historic win, because the industry has recognized the work we’re doing in technological innovation, business intelligence, and superior customer experience,” said Mateo Ward, Neutrona’s CEO. “Our decision to design and deploy Latin America’s first home-grown SDN-enabled network offers a story that was just too compelling for the judges to ignore.”
To further reinforce Neutrona’s leadership in providing “smart” networking services in Latin America, the carrier also received the Best Data Service Innovation award for Emerging Markets for the second year in a row. Neutrona’s investments in the region have established a true foundation for future initiatives, including the launch of a PoP as a Service (PaaS), support for advanced SD-WAN services, and its efforts to automate pricing through the use of machine learning.
“Our vision for Neutrona Networks was born out of a strong belief that the telecom market needed an independent and neutral carrier in Latin America that understands the quality and service requirements of international carriers serving the Fortune 1000 enterprise market,” said Luciano Salata, Neutrona’s President & COO. “We believed that we could achieve this high level of quality and customer experience despite the challenges presented by operating in Latin America and we have now proven that, not only to our customers and vendors, but to the entire industry.”
