As a result of increased data traffic, bandwidth is in short supply, making it critical for organizations reliant on low-latency internet access to seek new solutions. In response to this growing need, many businesses are now looking for assistance when transitioning from outdated Time-Division Multiplexing (TDM) systems to IP/MPLS technology that is capable of supporting advanced operations.

One company that is helping to enable this transition is LightSpeed Technologies, Inc. which recently took home the 2017 Top VAR Sales and Growth Award from Nokia for helping companies transition to IP/MPLS.

“I want to personally congratulate LightSpeed Technologies on a tremendous year,” stated John Marson, Vice President of North American Channels for Nokia. “Their flexibility and commitment to the new IP/MPLS technology has generated many satisfied customers for both Nokia and LightSpeed.  I look forward to continuing our relationship with LightSpeed, and further growing the business in the coming year.”
