Atlanta, GA. June 13, 2016 – Superior Essex is proud to announce that it has been named Best Global Wire & Cable Products Manufacturer & Recognized Leader in Fiber Optic Communications by the TMT Telecoms Awards. The TMT Telecom Awards were created to reward and recognize the telecommunications service providers and technology innovators in this vital and dynamic sector.
