“Congratulations to Centurylink for its strong showing in the MEF17 Awards. The company exhibited innovation in services development and delivery, and communicated that value to MEF’s panel of judges effectively.” Brian Washburn, Practice Leader, Network Transformation and Cloud, Ovum
We faced some tough competition for this year’s MEF awards; congratulations to all of the great companies who participated. We’re especially excited that our managed hybrid SD-WAN offering was so well received as we have always believed that a managed SD-WAN service makes a great technology even better.
Two groups deserve special thanks. First, the CenturyLink customers who continue to trust us with their networks and their digital transformation strategies. That collaboration, a seamless group of IT professionals comprised of customer IT staff and CenturyLink experts, is what creates the value MEF recognized. And, of course, we need to give a hearty shoutout to the hard-working employees of the newly merged CenturyLink. These awards recognize what we have said all along:
“By combining Level 3 and CenturyLink, consumers and businesses alike will benefit from expanded network reach and capabilities with a renewed commitment to delivering an outstanding customer experience,” Glen Post, CEO, CenturyLink.
We will continue to build on this momentum into 2018 and beyond. If you’d like more information about CenturyLink, feel free to contact us. We’d love to talk to you!
