Macquarie Telecom has won Juniper Networks’ Customer First category during the recently held Elevate Awards, a global event recognising network innovator partners of the network security vendor.
MacTel was recognised for using Juniper Networks technology in an overhaul of its national network. MacTel said the upgrade had enabled the telc to scale and meet more demand from Australian businesses, as well as reduce the impact of outages.
