Imtech Telecom, a technical services provider that specialises in the design, build and maintenance of next generation networks, has been awarded the EMEA Reseller of the Year by Ellacoya Networks, a leading provider of carrier-grade service control solutions for broadband IP networks. The award recognises Imtech’s capability and success in selling and deploying Ellacoya’s IP Service Control System to major UK internet service providers.

As increased competition drives down the cost of broadband, it is critical for service providers worldwide to introduce revenue-generating services while taking cost out of their network. By deploying Ellacoya’s award-winning IP Service Control System (as recognised for technology excellence by the Telecommunications Industry Association at GLOBALCOMM ™2006), Imtech Telecom is helping service providers to manage and prioritise network traffic, enabling them to introduce tiered service plans and reduce expenditure on wholesale bandwidth.

Jim Miller, vice president of worldwide sales at Ellacoya Networks, said: “Imtech provides Ellacoya with an invaluable route to market and the company has made a significant contribution to our success, outperforming any other global partner in the last 12 months. This award is testament to Imtech’s services capability, technical expertise and proven track record working with UK service providers.”

James Morgan, managing director of Imtech Telecom UK, added: “By deploying Ellacoya's best-of-breed technology, we have helped our customers lower operating costs whilst increasing revenues in what is becoming an ever more competitive market-place. Our clients can offer differentiated services, at competitive prices, while driving profitability. This has proved to be a winning formula as the broadband market approaches maturity.”

Imtech Telecom has offered Ellacoya’s IP Service Control System as part of its technology portfolio since 2004. The company also offers a range of value-added network services through its Connect managed services programme, including consultancy, design, installation, operations and maintenance, and project management.
