Medallion Communications Limited won the Best Data Centre Provider of the Year 2019 at the 4th Africa Information Technology & Telecom Awards (AITTA) held at the Movenpick Ambassador Hotel, Accra Ghana on 28th June 2019. Medallion Communications Ltd also won the “ Best Connectivity Provider” award at the 2nd edition of the AITTA in Ghana in 2017 and the 2018 “Interconnectivity Company” award. You will recall that the Nigeria Telecommunications Commission won the “ African Regulator” award from AITTA in 2016.
Reciting Medallion’s profile, the organizer of the award, InstintWave noted that Medallion has democratized Data Centre operations in Nigeria and indeed Africa. Thus, it deserved the ‘Best Data Centre Provider of the Year’ award.
The Chief Executive Officer of the company, Engr. Ikechukwu Nnamani, whilst receiving the award on behalf of Medallion Communications Limited said the award is a testament to Medallion’s resilience in building telecom infrastructure that is currently accommodating the hosting of contents from both local and international service providers in Nigeria.
Engr Nnamani said that the Medallion Data Center, is carrier-neutral and currently provides hosting services to over 83 local and international service providers that are operating in Nigeria. This is a feat which positioned Medallion to receive the award.
Medallion is presently strengthening its market footprints by expanding Data Centre services across Nigeria and selected West African nations. In addition to its facilities in Lagos and Abuja, Medallion is creating new facilities in Asaba, Enugu, Port-Harcourt, Kano and Ibadan in its next expansion phase. This is in a bid to address some of the data hosting challenges in the industry.
NiRA congratulates her Executive Director, Engr Ike Nnamani and the entire team at Medallion Communications on this well-deserved award.
