SINGAPORE, June 16, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Telstra yesterday scooped up three awards at the 13th annual Frost & Sullivan Asia Pacific ICT Awards banquet, held at Equinox Singapore.

Telstra received the Managed Service Provider of the Year, Connected Industries Service Provider of the Year and M2M Service Provider of the Year awards.

Mr. Avinash Sachdeva, Senior Industry Analyst, Digital Transformation at Frost & Sullivan said that Telstra has revolutionised the healthcare system with its vision to create a more sustainable system with a focus on wellness and prevention. "Over the past few years, it has acquired, invested in or partnered 18 strategic companies and solutions to offer the most extensive and integrated (interoperable) healthcare system.  In 2015, it acquired Dr Foster, Anywhere Healthcare and EOS Technologies (ComCare) to further strengthen its portfolio in the area of health analytics, telemedicine and community care capabilities," he added.

Mr. Sachdeva also said that by leveraging its strengths in connectivity and networks, and its collaboration with ecosystem partners, Telstra Health has emerged as one of the most strategic ventures from the telecom service provider. "This business unit, growing at almost 100% year-on-year, is expanding its geo-coverage in the Asia-Pacific region to become a billion dollar business over the next five years," he added.

He also said that Telstra has been highly successful in delivering a wide array of M2M business solutions across multiple industries in Australia. "In 2015, Telstra continued to monetise business opportunities by winning new clients specifically in the fleet management and logistic sectors, signing a multi-million dollar win with a leading construction equipment manufacturer to help them improve the fleet and production efficiency for their end-customers," he said.

Mr. Sachdeva said that as a result of increased traction from multiple industries, Telstra M2M SIOs deployment increased by 24%, while revenues grew by 22% year-on-year.

Meanwhile, Mr. Sandeep Bazaz, Industry Analyst, Digital Transformation at Frost & Sullivan said that Telstra has demonstrated exemplary performance in the managed services market by putting together a compelling end-to-end value proposition.

He added that the company focused on three key areas in 2015 - continuing strategic acquisitions in the region, enhancing its managed services capabilities and making significant investments in the intelligent network. "To enhance its managed service capability, Telstra has developed a strong team of 1,400 highly qualified consultants, which has helped the company capture a lot of repeat business from its large enterprise clients," he added.

"To enhance its network capability offering, Telstra launched a range of SDN products developed in strategic partnership with Cisco, which will help corporate customers deploy and configure software-defined network services on a consumption-based model. With the three-fold strategy, the service provider was able to increase its customer base in APAC and offer innovative solutions to its customers in the region," Mr. Bazaz said.

Mr. Andrew Wildblood, Head of Global Enterprise, Global Enterprise & Services at Telstra said the company was proud to be recognised for its work in the managed services, connected industries and M2M categories in Asia-Pacific. "We accept the triple endorsement as evidence that we are on the right track in providing our customers with reliable and innovative solutions," he said.
