Congratulations to the 2014 Awards winners

The 2014 Awards were hosted in a highly entertaining event last night, gathering together 170 industry figures from across the telecoms world. The Awards, which took place in London’s Barbican, recognised innovations from 16 categories that covered the most topical areas of the industry.

The second Awards reinforced their status as a key event in the industry calendar, with entries coming in from all parts of thesector, including operators, vendors and service providers across the world.
