CenturyLink will now be known as Lumen Technologies, or Lumen, the carrier giant announced on Monday.
The rebrand to Lumen will highlight the company‘s focus on next-generation network services to help business customers transform, including smart cities, virtual collaboration, and high-performance networking and security, CenturyLink said.
Garrett Gee, senior vice president, indirect sales for CenturyLink and now Lumen, said that the company has maintained a successful partner program for more than 25 years because of its commitment to evolving and providing the critical services to its partners and their customers. “This change is no different,” Gee said in an email to CRN.
“Businesses across the world need solutions that offer a digital, on-demand experience and that is our focus with the Lumen Platform,“ he said. ”Our Platform is how we will deliver those critical solutions, including networking, security and communications and collaboration, in a much more integrated and efficient manner.”
