TMC Announces Winners of NGN Leadership Awards
By Erik Linask
When TMC launched NGN Magazine in January 2009 – or rather rebranded its predecessor, IMS Magazine – it was with the understanding that, while IMS would continue to play a major role, other evolutionary technologies were also being developed that would shape a new world of communications networking.
Today, that evolution has already brought us live 4G wireless networks that promise to further eradicate the distinction between fixed and mobile applications and services – not to mention the flood of new end user devices, including the iPad and Sprint’s soon-to-be-released 4G phone, the HTC (News - Alert) Evo 4G.
New network technologies have also driven the growth of the SaaS and CaaS markets, as well as the next phase of the migration to cloud services, PaaS (Platform-as-a-Service) and IaaS (Infrastructure-as-a-Service) offerings, all evolutions of the hosted voice services that, not long ago, were shunned by large and even mid-sized businesses.
Of course, none of these would be possible without the networks across which they are delivered, including the physical core and access infrastructures, service delivery platforms, bridging technologies, test and monitoring suites, and more.
The second annual NGN Leadership Awards seeks to recognize that growth and evolution, as well as the distinction between the infrastructure and application/services markets, by segmenting winners into two distinct categories.
The Network Technology category recognizes vendors whose products have helped redefine the networks themselves. The Services and Applications category recognizes those whose ingenuity and innovation has resulted in those next generation of revenue-generating services and products that will allow service providers and network operators to realize the value from their network investments.
To all of this year’s winners, we say, “Congratulations!” and wish you continued success as we, as an industry, continue to evolve and innovate.
