“Whether you are a mining supplier, in health care, education, an entrepreneur, whatever company you work for, our goal is always to make life easier for all businesses,” said Shannon Restoule. She is the General Manager of Agilis Networks, a Sudbury-based company that has been the telecommunications backbone in many Ontario communities since 1997, providing fire optic internet, phone services, and data hosting for all types of businesses.
As a CPA, Restoule knows data and figures. Over the past few years, the number 25 stands out to her as Agilis Networks recently celebrated its silver anniversary in business. “We are grateful for what we have accomplished, and we are excited for what is ahead in the cities we service.”
Helping Restoule to lead the charge for new business is Account Executive, Karen Mathewson. With more than 30 years of sales experience, Mathewson is aware of the challenges that exist for telecommunications in Northern Ontario, including geography and infrastructure hurdles, but she realizes barriers are meant to be broken.
“We have recently partnered with Atikameksheng Anishnawbek First Nation to provide critical infrastructure that is enhancing telecommunications services. We are so proud of this collaboration,” said Mathewson. She is also proud of Agilis Networks’ expansion into other sectors, like architecture, engineering, accounting, insurance, and law firms. “We want to remove their pain points by providing stability, accessibility, and quick turnaround times with service and upgrades. The businesses we work with know that when you call Agilis Networks, we respond immediately and provide solutions.”
When asked about other projects that stands out, Restoule was quick to mention that, “Agilis Networks was the first telecom company to connect the Walden and Valley East Industrial Parks. We played a significant role in ensuring the economic development of these important business districts.”
Helping the community, Agilis Networks partnered with the City of Greater Sudbury and Public Health Sudbury & Districts to activate a COVID-19 Vaccination Booking Hotline responding to over 574,000 incoming calls. And since 2012, Agilis Networks has sponsored Cinéfest Sudbury International Film Festival and continues to play a major role for annual event as the need for bandwidth and downloading capabilities balloons.
“Agilis Networks provides timely and dedicated high-speed service that’s enabled Cinéfest to adapt to changes within our industry. We are thankful to have them as a key partner,” said Cinéfest Executive Director, Patrick O’Hearn.
From entertainment to extraction, Mathewson has been able to connect with even more mining entities. “More than ever, today’s mining supply and services companies rely on top-end telecommunications to do business globally. We provide these critical connections in our communities.”
