According to Shuishan Lu, Industry Analyst, ICT Practice, Frost & Sullivan, "NTT Communications' range of end-to-end unified communications and collaboration (UCC) services offer networking, voice, system integration and consulting, cloud deployment, and managed services.
Under the NTT Group, NTT Communications, Dimension Data, and Arkadin have joined hands to offer end-to-end UCC solutions and services for enterprise customers. The "Team NTT" go-to-market strategy further strengthens NTT Communications' project consulting and deployment capabilities in the highly competitive UCC services market." With Regard to Asia-Pacific Telco Data Center Services Provider of the Year, Yu Xuan Ng, Industry Analyst, ICT Practice, Frost & Sullivan, said "NTT Communications has attained success by addressing market demand from hyperscale cloud vendors and distinguishing itself from competitors with its secure connectivity solutions (SD-Exchange) and portfolio of value-added services. As a result of its strategic initiatives, NTT Communications has achieved remarkable year-on-year revenue growth in the data center services market."
Regarding Arkadin's award, Chong Zi Ning, Research Analyst, ICT Practice, Frost & Sullivan said "The rise of various digital platforms is increasing the complexity of enterprise collaborations and communications.

As Microsoft's modern workplace-enablement partner, Arkadin's expertise has brought success to organizations in their workplace transformation journey."
