ItsOn was recognized as a finalist in the category of service orchestration and delivery for its cloud-based platform that enables digital transformation among mobile operators.
"We are delighted to be recognized as a finalist in the Fierce Innovation Awards," said Robert Oberhofer, Ph.D., vice president of technical sales and marketing at ItsOn. "We are continually striving to be a leader and innovator in helping operators achieve their business goals as they look to meet the market demands of a new digital experience through our cloud platform."
Applications were reviewed by an exclusive panel of executives from major telecommunications companies including Verizon, TeliaSonera, Comcast, Sprint and T-Mobile. All applications were evaluated based on effectiveness, ease of use/ROI, innovation and end-user impact.
The ItsOn platform was recognized for its cloud-client solution that gives carriers a nimble, scalable architecture that integrates all key components to enable a modern digital service experience.
