By: Erik Linask

With another year behind us, it’s time once again to highlight the many products that have contributed not only to the growth of the IP communications market, but have helped countless businesses continue to thrive in a year overshadowed by a global recession.

The range of products, applications, and services among this year’s INTERNET TELEPHONY Product of the Year winners embody the very nature of IP networking and the innovation it has spurred. Some have evolved from their PSTN brethren, while others represent a new breed of communications technology, made possible by the convergence of voice and data packets on converged networks, both fixed and mobile.

As a whole, this list of winners also represents the growing breadth of coverage readers have come to expect in not only INTERNET TELEPHONY, but on TMCnet and at ITEXPO (News - Alert) as well.
