The TMC Labs Innovation Award honors products that have demonstrated innovation, unique features, and noteworthy developments toward improving communications technology.
"We're pleased to present Hughes with the prestigious Unified Communications TMC Labs Innovation Award," stated Rich Tehrani, TMC CEO. "Hughes Enterprise VoIP has shown true innovation and is deserving of this recognition."
"Distributed enterprises have historically been unable to take advantage of the cost savings and advanced features of VoIP due to the high access costs associated with MPLS," said Sampath Ramaswami, senior director, strategic planning. "Hughes Converged Broadband Architecture, incorporating ActiveQoS™ technology, delivers strong Quality of Service (QoS) for enterprise-grade voice and data over affordable broadband networks. We are honored by the recognition from TMC which confirms the strength of our solution to enterprises nationwide."
