Deutsche Telekom and Colt Ink 5-Year Partnership

Deutsche Telekom International Carrier Sales & Solutions (ICSS) and Colt Technology Services announced a five-year partnership covering international telephony services.

Under the pact, Colt will use Deutsche Telekom’s network interconnects to complement its footprint, allowing it to expand and strengthen its portfolio of voice services for both wholesale and enterprise customers. Deutsche Telekom ICSS will have access to Colt’s comprehensive voice portfolio and extensive network in Europe, allowing it to better support its customers across Europe.

Richard Oosterom, Executive Vice President, Voice Services at Colt says, “A recent study commissioned by Colt, the Tech Deficit, showed that nearly eight out of nine enterprises recognize that their voice and communications infrastructure has to evolve to keep up with business demands. At the same time, we see an increasing demand for services from enterprise customers that require support not only in one country, but in several countries in Europe and beyond. Collaborating with Deutsche Telekom ICSS allows us shorten the time to expand and strengthen our offering and with considerably less risk than doing it by ourselves from the ground up, enabling us to better meet the requirements of our customers and retain our leadership position in the European telecoms market.”
