Colt Technology Services has had a busy week, with three interesting bits of news in three different corners of the industry, a new cloud telephony partnership with Solvion in Europe, new voice markets in the Far East and North America, and a quantum-secured transport trial with some help from ADVA.
In Europe, Colt and Solvion have teamed up for cloud telephony solutions in the DACH region. The partnership will target enterprises transitioning from legacy over to Microsoft Teams, leveraging Solvion's consulting expertise and Colt's infrastructure and services. For the geographically uninitiated (ok ok, yes I had to look it up), DACH refers to the countries of Germany, Austria, and Switzerland.
In the Far East, Colt has expanded its Global SIP Trunking services to South Korea as well as to the states of New Jersey, Florida, Tennessee, Massachussetts, Virginia, and Washington. They will use the new capabilities to serve enterprises beyond their current footprint. Previously, outside of Europe they had only rolled out services in Hong Kong and New York, and it seems likely that they have other geographies in the pipeline.
And according to ADVA, Colt has conducted a successful field test of quantum secured transport. They have leveraged ADVA's FSP 3000 with ConnectGuard Layer 1 encryption, which uses quantum key distribution technology from ID Quantique to generate and distribute quantum random bit strings. The trial brings the next generation security technology one step closer to the actual enterprise market.
