2009 NGN Leadership Awards
The NGN Leadership Awards were established to recognize products or services, which made outstanding achievements in the evolving realm of next-generation communications products and services. The companies that were recognized made major contributions in the advancement of the NGN industry.
As Executive Editor Richard Grigonis wrote in the inaugural issue of NGN magazine, explaining the evolution of our brand from IMS to NGN:
“Certainly the future of communications networks is even more expansive than what IMS alone can describe. The canvas upon which network operators and providers “paint” their services grows larger every day. Indeed, their toolkit of “paints” has become more varied and colorful, too.”
The award winners that we recognize here are the first blending of canvas and color.
The editors and staff of NGN magazine congratulate the winners and wish them continued success.
