Produced by UBM Tech and NTCA, TelcoVision will take place October 23-25 at the Las Vegas Hotel. For more information and to register, visit telcovisiononline.com.
The TelcoVision Awards serve to recognize and reward significant advancements in the telco industry within two categories: Product of the Year and Service Provider of the Year. The Product of the Year award recognizes a TelcoVision exhibitor's newly announced product that helps service providers drive profit growth and network transformation. Service Provider of the Year will be awarded to a top communication service provider surpassing consumer expectations. Award details, eligibility criteria, and the submission form are available on the TelcoVision Awards page. The submission deadline is September 20.
"With the telco industry moving toward an all-IP future, vendors and broadband providers are making radical shifts to stay competitive," said Fred Knight, TelcoVision General Manager. "The TelcoVision Awards will highlight these exciting product launches and new service initiatives. TelcoVision is proud to not only host industry leaders in the Expo Hall, but also recognize their advancements through our acclaimed awards program."
Winners of both awards will be announced from the TelcoVision keynote stage. TelcoVision will present the Service Provider of the Year award on Thursday, October 24 and announce the Product of the Year winner on Friday, October 25.
All submissions are reviewed by an independent panel of distinguished judges, comprised of the industry's leading analysts and executives. For the Product of the Year category, the Judging Committee will narrow down submissions to a group of finalists, and TelcoVision attendees will determine a final winner by voting onsite at the Attendee Lounge in the Expo Hall.
