H2O Networks, the specialist provider of fibre optic networks via the UK’s sewer system, today announced the appointment of David Elliott as regional sales manager for Scotland. Elliott brings with him over 20 years sales experience gained in the IT and telecoms sector.
Elfed Thomas, managing director, H2O Networks, said: “Scotland is a key sales area for us, with many organisations, such as Aberdeen and Napier Universities already taking advantage of our offering. Because Scottish Water is owned by the Government and we already have an agreement in place with them to use their sewer network, the growth potential for H2O Networks in this region is tremendous.
He continues: “David Elliott’s appointment is a real bonus to the company as he has vast experience in this sector and has a full understanding of the Scottish market place.”
Elliott comments: “I am extremely excited about joining such a forward thinking organisation. H2O Networks bespoke, future-proofed networks are unique and I hope my previous experience and contacts will lead to some fantastic opportunities for the company.
He continues: “H2O Networks proposition works especially well in Scotland due to its environmental benefits. As Many of Scotland’s major cities are tourist attractions so any fibre deployment method which shy away from digging up the roads and the ensuing chaos this causes is extremely welcome.”
Prior to joining H2O Networks, Elliott was responsible for business development and full sales life cycle telephony systems at BT. He also worked with Kingston Communications for over ten years where he was responsible for full end-to-end business development and client management.
H2O Network’s Focus (Fibre Optical Cable Underground Sewer) System can be implemented 80% faster than traditional methods and there is no need for the complex negotiations that come with getting the permission to dig up the roads and pavements.
As existing networks become increasingly congested with cables of all types, it has become much more difficult for network companies to find new pathways. By using the ready made channels in the sewers, organisations can set up their own IT and telecoms networks with virtually unlimited bandwidth, future proofing their requirements.
