Last night in a glittering ceremony at the Equinox in Singapore, Telstra was honoured to receive three coveted Frost & Sullivan Asia Pacific ICT Awards.

With a focus on helping drive innovation, excellence and a positive change in the global economy, the Frost & Sullivan awards recognise companies in a variety of regional and global markets that demonstrate best-in-class performance. Given Telstra’s significant expansion in the Asia Pacific region, it’s truly rewarding to be recognised by the industry in the region, especially for the second year in a row.

At this year’s awards Telstra took home the Managed Service Provider of the Year, Connected Industries Service Provider of the Year and M2M Service Provider of the Year awards:

  • 2016 Asia Pacific Managed Service Provider of the Year (for the second consecutive year)
    • Awarded to Telstra for showing exemplary growth and performance in 2015 by continuing strategic acquisitions in the region, enhancing our managed services capabilities and making significant investments in our intelligent network.
  • 2016 Asia Pacific Connected Industries Service Provider of the Year
    • Frost & Sullivan noted that by leveraging our strengths in connectivity and networks, and in collaboration with ecosystem partners, Telstra had “revolutionised the healthcare system with its vision to create a more sustainable system with a focus on wellness and prevention.”

    • Awarded based on Telstra’s M2M strategy partnerships, achievements and platform – including increased traction from multiple industries, M2M SIOs deployment increasing by 24%, while revenues grew by 22% year-on-year.
