WireIE Shortlisted for Capacity Global Carrier Awards

TORONTO, ON – November 1, 2016 – WireIE, a wholesale network operator specialized in the deployment of MEF-Certified Carrier Ethernet networks to Canada’s underserved markets, announces it has been shortlisted for the Capacity Global Carrier Awards. WireIE was nominated for the award based on its innovative solutions for resource-based companies, which provides carrier-grade, MEF-certified Ethernet to underserved and hard to reach markets.

WireIE’s delivery of high quality network services to the underserved regions addresses the problems faced by its customers due to high latencies and low bandwidth. The high speed internet connections resulting from WireIE’s solutions enable the use of critical real-time applications for voice and data, which eliminates the communications divide between office and the field. As a result, companies experience enhanced efficiency, lower costs and the ability to leverage new opportunities previously out of reach.

“It’s an honor to be recognized for WireIE’s work in bringing enhanced connectivity to the oil and gas vertical,” states Rob Barlow, CEO and President of WireIE. “We’ve witnessed a significant increase in the demand for reliable, low latency connectivity from resource-based companies in Canada, as well as internationally. We look forward to continue working with our partners to deliver these services and empower our customers to accomplish things they previously didn’t believe were possible.”

“WireIE solves many of the logistical challenges for telecom in verticals and resource-based industries globally, particularly in underserved geographies,” adds Alan Burkitt-Gray, Editor of Capacity Magazine.

The Capacity Global Carrier Awards celebrate innovation, excellence and vision, setting the benchmark for performance throughout the global wholesale telecoms marketplace. The winners will be announced at the 11th Global Carrier Awards 2016 on Tuesday, November 8 in Paris, France.
