New company brings together C&C, AirRadio and Red-M to help CIOs meet the challenge of convergent infrastructures & technologies
Organisations faced with the challenge of integrating increasingly mobile and wireless environments with evolving IT systems & infrastructure are targeted by a new company, Affini, which combines the expertise of three established communications and IT players in a single provider, targeting both UK and international markets.
Affini brings together three companies within the Team Telecom Group: IT strategy and professional services specialist, C&C Technology Consulting (C&C), managed services provider, AirRadio and wireless and mobility experts, Red-M.
As well as technology expertise the three companies that form Affini bring a wealth of sector experience.

CIOs are now finding that their organisation’s IT strategy often goes beyond the scope of their experience. By combining the forces of three companies, Affini offers a wealth of IT infrastructure and communications expertise, across both fixed and wireless domains. Affini is all about connecting technology for our clients. We integrate systems and platforms, we link devices to systems, and we optimise communications between employees to maximise performance and efficiency from technology solutions deployed across a business.”
