Peter Kelly, President, Enterprise EMEA at Nortel, said: “This award is in recognition of Affiniti’s outstanding performance over the past year. The company has significantly grown its Nortel revenue and strengthened its position as a leading UK partner in data, security, optical and converged communications, such as IP telephony and contact centres.”

We have implemented innovative Nortel solutions to our customers that deliver real value against their business objectives.
