Global Telecom & Technology (GTT), a global Multi-Network Operator, has been chosen by ARTEL (News - Alert), a U.S.-based systems integrator, to provide connectivity for its mission-critical clients worldwide.

Under the agreement, GTT will provide ARTEL a number of best-fit customer solutions to several countries around the world, including Estonia, Finland, Montenegro, Great Britain and Russia.
Richard D. Calder, Jr., GTT’s president and CEO said that this contract with ARTEL further emphasizes the value of their Multi-Network Operator strategy within the global market. GTT’s broad set of vendor relationships and global network footprint will enable ARTEL to better provide services in hard-to-reach locations around the world.
Abdul Rana, ARTEL’s vice president, Strategic Operations also noted that more than half of ARTEL’s business is conducted overseas, including operations in six of the seven continents. Rana said this new relationship with GTT will serve to expand their existing capabilities and enhance their core strengths supporting their international customers.
