2013 Agility Award Winners EMEA

  • Sky (UK): Ground-breaking project to overhaul legacy infrastructure with a next-generation data centre environment aimed at improving scalability, flexibility and availability, to allow the business to respond to continued growth.
  • Telia Sonera (Sweden): Two projects; the first to solve issues with IPv4 to IPv6 transition and at the same time addressing the need for a standalone GI Firewall; the second to consolidate multiple data centres, harmonising the IT architecture and allowing much-improved service to users.
