As businesses transition to next-generation communication technologies such as IP/MPLS and DWDM, a combination of cutting-edge network technologies and the full-service systems integrators that can provide them as end-to-end network solutions drives success for many satisfied customers. Recognizing the role of those value-added resellers (VARs) is the reason Nokia created its Top VAR Award, which  LightSpeed Technologies has won for the second year in a row.

The award is a testament to LightSpeed’s sustained role in helping businesses make potentially challenging network infrastructure transitions successfully, in addition to its leading sales generation. As a Tier 1 Nokia Business Partner and an exclusive Nokia VAR for 18 years, LightSpeed draws on its extensive experience providing technical support to customers throughout the transition from legacy technologies to the best-in-breed among the latest innovations in communications infrastructure. This typically means evolving an embedded infrastructure base by integrating new technologies that improve its operational efficiency and reliability.

LightSpeed brings Nokia’s IP/MPLS data, optical transport, microwave and its broadband solutions leveraging GPON and LTE primarily to the energy, broadband, service provider, enterprise, and state and local government markets. The company’s expert systems engineering and design services, network installation, integration and ongoing maintenance have made the full benefits of Nokia’s industry-leading products and the innovation and global resources of Bell Labs accessible for a broad and growing range of businesses.

Lightspeed certified Nokia product experts work to identify opportunities to improve any customers’ bottom line and maximize efficiency and profitability, such as by optimizing and upgrading the network’s hardware, providing access to new revenue streams, lowering operating costs, streamlining network complexity, and improving network security. In this way Nokia, LightSpeed, and LightSpeed’s customers all benefit from the partnership.

Continuously providing renowned customer service and technical assistance that enables customers to leverage the best next-generation communications infrastructure technology is the reason LightSpeed is winner of Nokia’s 2018 Top VAR Sales and Growth Award.
