Its SD-WAN service leverages GTT’s Tier 1 Internet backbone and comprehensive, cost-efficient span of broadband and internet connectivity options. Its Tier 1 IP network is ranked in the top five on a worldwide scale.

GTT has had several other wins this year, including Light Reading’s (News - Alert) Leading Lights Award for Company of the Year, Stevie Awards for Company of the Year, Fastest Growing Company of the Year and Executive of the Year at the American Business Awards and International Business Awards.
