In recognition of its feat and contributions to the Nigeriaâ€™s Information Communication Technology sector, Medallion Communications has again been honoured as the â€˜Best Interconnect Service Providerâ€™ in Nigeria for the second time this year.
The company which deals in establishment of interconnect exchange clearinghouses, establishment of carrier hotels and data hosting facilities, telecommunications infrastructure development and other Value added services bagged the award at the Telecoms Industry Awards just some months after it clinched same award at the Beacon of ICT Awards Series.
Organised by the Association of Telecommunications Companies of Nigeria, ATCON, the umbrella body of telecommunications companies in Nigeria, the award initiative arose from the need to appreciate excellence, foster healthy competition and to drive investment in the sector, amongst others.
Speaking on the achievement, Chief Executive Officer of Medallion communications, Mr. Ikechukwu Nnamani, commended the organisers for promoting excellence in the industry, adding that acknowledging the organisationâ€™s effort, which was also named the â€˜Telecom Solution Support Company of the yearâ€™ would further spur it to redefine interconnectivity and data center services in the country.
President of ATCON, Mr OlusolaTeniola, maintained that the exercise considered strict professionalism in its procedures and therefore commended the awardee for scaling through the tough procedures to emerge the industry hero.
â€œIt is believed that rewarding of creativity and innovation would automatically reinforce investment in the sector both locally and internationally. New innovations require further investments for its continuity and ATCON plans to seize this reward system to appreciate establishments who see innovation as a key driver of the industry.
â€œAs we reward both companies and individual today, We believe that this would motivate innovation and creativity in other operators as well as influence huge investments in the sector,â€ he added.
