The inaugural Telecoms.com Industry Awards

On Monday night in Barcelona, the Telecoms.com team welcomed almost 200 industry veterans for the inaugural Telecoms.com Industry Awards.

High up on Montjuic with a panoramic view of the city, Mike Hibberd, editorial director and Tim Banham, publisher of Telecoms.com handed awards to the following winners.

The award for Best Enterprise Cloud Offering went to YTL Communications for the 1BestariNet program.

The award for Best Mobile Financial Service went to Indosat for Dompetku Mobile Wallet and Mobile Money Service.

Next up was the Best MVNO category and the winning entry came from Truphone.

The award recognising the Best use of Cloud Services by a Telco went to Telefonica and TOA Technologies for ETAdirect.

The Best use of Wifi award was received by Devicescape for its Curated Virtual Network.

Next up was the award for Customer Experience Management which went to Telefonica UK & SpatialBuzz for the Trusted Network Programme.

The award for Connecting the Unconnected went to Ericsson for its Millennium Villages Project.

The award for Urban Improvements went to Tarana Wireless for its Concentrating Multipoint (CMP) topology.

The final award of the evening, for Pushing the Limits in mobile technology, attracted by far the most nominations of any of our categories, resulting in a dead heat from our judging panel. So two winners were announced for this category: Ericsson and Telstra for LTE Broadcast and Radisys and Airspan for their LTE-A solution for small cells.

Congratulations to all our winners and a big thanks to all our entrants and attendees for making it a great night.
