Telecom Italia Sparkle receives BEST LATAM PROJECT and BEST OTT PARTNERSHIP Awards

TI Sparkle wins in two areas of strategic focus at the 2014 edition of the Capacity Awards

TI Sparkle wins two awards that recognize the company’ success in two main areas of strategic focus, the creation of an ecosystem of collaboration with OTTs in its Data Centers as well as its Latin America operations.

“We are very proud of these awards” says TI Sparkle’s CEO Elisabetta Ripa, “ as making Sparkle the service provider of reference for the wide OTT segment has always been one of our top priorities”. “As well as providing our Latam customers with best quality and most competitive commercial proposition by always increasing the capillarity and the performance of our Latin American backbone”.

Sparkle’s Data Center strategy aims at moving towards the higher end of the value chain from a pure IaaS offer to SaaS by enriching current infrastructure with new applications, partly developed in house and partly introduced by Partners. Such newly created ecosystem, in combination with effective international connectivity solutions and mobile data know-how, have generated successful value added propositions to new customer segments as for example in the realm of secure authentication and social network messagging.

Latin America is historically a strategic area of focus for Sparkle as a global player as well as to provide support to major retail operations developed locally by parent company Telecom Italia. As “Best in Class IP provider in the North-South America route” with an offered quality comparable to a private internet connection, increasing the performance offered to its customers remains Sparkle’s main objective.

The awards were presented at the Capacity Awards 2014 ceremony held yesterday in Amsterdam attended by over 300 of the most prominent representatives of the international telecommunications community.
