INTERNET TELEPHONY Magazine honors companies and solutions leading the way for innovation in NFV  

Trumbull, Conn. – Jan. 18, 2017 - TMC, a global, integrated media company helping clients build communities in person, in print and online, announced today the winners of the 2016 NFV Product of the Year Awards, presented by TMC’s INTERNET TELEPHONY Magazine.

Drawing upon cloud and virtualization, two of the most powerful trends in computing, NFV (Network Function Virtualization) promises to deliver new levels of flexibility, efficiency, and agility to service providers. By virtualizing network functions on COTS hardware – functions that previously required dedicated, purpose-built hardware – service providers will find themselves able to react more rapidly to market trends, more effectively meet user demands, and more efficiently deliver new services and applications that will drive new revenue streams.

INTERNET TELEPHONY’s NFV Product of the Year awards recognize those companies and solutions leading the growth of this rapidly-emerging technology.

“Recognizing leaders advancing NFV technologies, TMC is proud to announce the winners of the annual NFV Product of the Year Awards," said Rich Tehrani, CEO, TMC. "This year’s winners have demonstrated innovation that I predict will drive continued growth in the quickly evolving industry. It is our pleasure to honor them for their inspiring work.”
