2019 marks the start of a new chapter in my career. After four really fun and informative years with Ciena, I have joined Colt Technology Services to head up a new team focusing on the mobile & wireless market segment. It’s been a full on start since joining at the beginning of the year.
Here are a couple of press releases regarding my appointment.
Capacity Media – Colt names former Ciena man Gilmour as head of mobile connectivity solutions
“Speaking of his appointment, Gilmour said: “Colt’s network assets put it in the best possible position to be able to assist MNOs to define and cement their mobile backhaul strategies. While there’s a lot of talk in the market about 5G, there are many ways in which businesses can be making the most of their 4G networks.
“Colt can be a key partner in this space, and I’m excited to be joining the business at a pivotal time where many are looking to get the most out of their cellular networks to be ready for whatever the future may hold.”
His new role will see Gilmour based at Colt’s London headquarters, working alongside Colt’s international teams to boost the company’s offering in the mobile market. He will report into Gilder, who also joined Colt from Ciena in September of last year.
Gilder said: “The reach and density of the Colt IQ Network across key metros all around the globe makes Colt a strong partner for Mobile Network Operators (MNOs) as they start readying themselves for a 5G world. Mark has extensive experience in this space, and I am thrilled that his wealth of knowledge about the mobile industry will shape Colt’s mobile strategy.”
Mark Gilmour joins Colt as the business looks to enable MNOs better to take advantage of the Colt IQ Network.
