By TMC April 29, 2016

Norwalk, Conn., April 29, 2016TMC, a global, integrated media company helping clients build communities in print, in person and online, today announced the recipients of the 2016 INTERNET TELEPHONY SDN Excellence Award, presented by  INTERNET TELEPHONY magazine.  

SDN is architecture that separates the control and data planes of the network and automatically looks at flows in the network, understanding the requirements of those different flows, and using the network to provide those flows with the appropriate bandwidth and other network resources. SDN may be an emerging technology, but it’s being used, or considered, for a variety of applications - to interconnect data centers and to allow broadband service providers to operate their networks more efficiently and flexibly so that they can better respond to the over-the-top threat.

INTERNET TELEPHONY’s SDN Excellence Awards have been bestowed upon companies that demonstrate the innovation, vision, and execution to deliver software-based networking tools to support different and unique communities of interest. 

“It is my pleasure to congratulate the winners of the 2016 INTERNET TELEPHONY SDN Excellence Award,” said Rich Tehrani, CEO, TMC. “As leaders in the burgeoning market for software-based networks, these recipients are combining innovation with execution to lead this emerging industry forward. I look forward to seeing their future successes. ”
