Global Telecommunications Consulting and Service Company Selected to Support the Continued Commercialization of Aqua Comm’s Portfolio of Subsea Cable Systems
DUBLIN and NEW YORK — April 17, 2018 — Aqua Comms DAC (“Aqua Comms”), the operator of Ireland’s first dedicated subsea fibre-optic network interconnecting New York, Dublin and London, today announced that it has engaged APTelecom, a facilities-based telecom consulting and service company specializing in emerging markets, to serve as its International Sales partner in the development of new client markets in Asia and the United States.
As the owner and operator of America Europe Connect-1 (AEC-1) and CeltixConnect-1, Aqua Comms has a unique portfolio of network assets and continues to build on its vision of efficient submarine infrastructure ownership with its membership in the HAVFRUE consortium, and the development of CeltixConnect-2 and North Sea Connect, bridging the Northern Atlantic between North America and Northern Europe.
“We are thrilled to be a part of such an important project in one of the world’s most significant telecom markets, working within the Aqua Comms team to help extend their reach,” said Sean Bergin, President of APTelecom and current member of the PTC Board of Governors. “The demand for data continues to grow and this is especially true of the Atlantic. Given its asset base, Aqua Comms has a unique value proposition and APTelecom is looking forward to supporting their sales activities with a focus on Asia and the U.S.”
“APTelecom’s relationships, reach and expertise spans a wide range of emerging and established global markets and we are pleased to engage their services as our International Sales Partner,” commented Nigel Bayliff, CEO of Aqua Comms. “HAVFRUE is placing the Atlantic in the spotlight again and remains a key driver as global growth in data consumption continues unabated. APTelecom assists us by promoting our network in markets that we do not have internal sales resources.”
Aqua Comms and APTelecom will be announcing updates in the coming weeks and months as their program gets underway.
