ITSPA, the industry body representing the VoIP sector, has unveiled the finalists for its 5th annual Awards, sponsored by Magrathea and which are taking place on the 6th March at the House of Commons Members’ Dining Room.
The ITSPA Awards are designed to celebrate innovation and best practice in the VoIP industry. This year has seen the highest number of entries to date with over 60 entries received.
A full list of the finalists is available below. The event is kindly being hosted by Dr Julian Huppert MP , Vice Chair of the Parliamentary Internet Communications and Technology Forum.
The award categories for this year include, Best Consumer VoIP, Best Business ITSP (Small Enterprise, Medium Enterprise and Corporate), Best VoIP CPE, Best VoIP Infrastructure, Most Innovative VoIP Product and the ITSPA Members’ Pick.
Malden Electronics conducted the technical testing for three award categories; Best Consumer VoIP; Best Business ITSP (Small Enterprise); and Best Business (Medium Enterprise). Entrants in these categories underwent two months of technical testing as well as submitting a written entry submission.
Separately, entrants to all categories had to complete a written self-assessment, which were independently reviewed by the ITSPA Awards judges.
The ITSPA Members’ Pick was a selected shortlist from the membership, outlining companies and services, who they believed had provided real value to the industry in recent years.
Eli Katz, Chair of ITSPA Council said:
“Those shortlisted are an excellent line up to represent the significant growth of IP telephony and communications in both the consumer and business sectors.
I look forward to meeting all the finalists as well as discussing the key regulatory issues facing our sector with our parliamentary hosts on the day.”
