After an exciting September 2012, filled with nominations at the World Communications Awards (WCA), TeliaSonera International Carrier kicks off the fall season with two more award nominations for a couple of categories in the 2012 Capacity Awards.  The prestigious Capacity Awards place an emphasis on companies, technology partners and individuals who excel in the deployment, development and use of carrier services throughout the year.  TeliaSonera International Carrier, providing exceptional network infrastructure and services, has been shortlisted in the Best Global Wholesale Carrier and the Best Pan-European Wholesale Carrier categories. 

Erik Hallberg, President of TeliaSonera International Carrier, commented on his excitement of the nominations, “The 2012 Capacity Awards is a huge event and to be nominated in not one, but two separate categories is fantastic for TeliaSonera International Carrier. It has been a momentous 12 months for the company as a whole and to have our achievements recognized is great news. The fact that we could potentially win four awards in one evening would be an outstanding achievement for us”.  

TeliaSonera’s nominations are an outstanding addition to their already successful year.  Prior to being shortlisted at the 2012 Capacity Awards, TeliaSonera was the proud recipient of the award for Best Global Optical Network at the DWDM NGN Optical Networking Conference in Monaco.

Winners of the Capacity Awards will be announced at the 8th annual Gala dinner on November 13th in Amsterdam, taking place the same night as the WCA awards in London.
