Dubai – MENA Herald: du’s CEO, Osman Sultan, was recognised as the Telecom Leader of the Year at Telecom Review’s 6th Annual Industry Leaders Summit, held in Festival City recently.

As a brand-maker who has always ridden the changes of this ever-transforming industry, Osman Sultan’s unique ability to predict future mobility trends has enabled him to view the telecommunications industry as more than just a communications provider; instead he sees it as an ever evolving entity that must adapt and innovate to lead the changing tides. He has led du to pioneer a diverse set of offerings that have established it as a leader in the digital economy and an important contributor to the development of the UAE’s smart city agenda.

The fastest growing telecommunications provider was also recognised as the Best Cloud Infrastructure Provider and Best Operator TV & Media Services by the Telecom Review 6th Annual Industry Leaders Summit.

Commenting on du’s commitment to ICT and these latest industry wins, Osman Sultan said: “We are thrilled to have received such important international industry recognition. By diversifying our services at du, we are able to serve a greater number of businesses beyond the traditional telecommunications requirements, enabling us to break into entirely new enterprise segments. At du, we strive to set the benchmarks, not only for UAE businesses, but for organisations throughout the region to implement best practices and solutions. I would like to congratulate each and every member of the du family, without whom these wins would not be possible.”

Having remained a consistent choice for carrier, cloud, enterprise and content providers throughout the Middle East, datamena – du’s carrier neutral data centre and connectivity platform – was presented the Best Cloud Infrastructure Provider award. du was also bestowed the honour of the Best Operator TV & Media Services for actively leading the market with its excellent selection of TV and VOD.

Telecom Review honours the very best of the ICT/Telecom industry with its Industry Excellence Awards, and this year the event was streamed live to thousands of viewers from across the globe making it a truly international recognition.
