Internet Telephony Magazine honors companies leading the way for innovation in SDN  

Trumbull, Conn. – Jan. 19, 2017 - TMC, a global, integrated media company helping clients build communities in person, in print and online, announced today the winners of the 2016 SDN Product of the Year Awards, presented by TMC’s INTERNET TELEPHONY Magazine.

Software Defined Networking (SDN) is considered to be one of the most important, and potentially disruptive, developments in networking since the rise of the Internet. To date, networks and connectivity have come first, and applications have followed. SDN turns this model on its head, approaching networking from an apps-first standpoint.

SDN has already had a profound impact on the IT and Telecom industries and, as this technology continues to grow in popularity, the SDN Product of the Year Awards reward companies that are leading the way and building SDN architecture and applications.

“Recognizing the leaders advancing SDN technologies, TMC is proud to announce the winners of the annual SDN Product of the Year Awards," said TMC CEO Rich Tehrani. "This year’s winners demonstrated innovation and are key in shaping the quickly evolving industry. It is our pleasure to honor them for their inspiring work.”
