2009 Unified Communications TMC Labs Innovation Award Winners Announced
For Immediate Release
This TMC Labs Innovation Award honors ground-breaking products that have helped advance unified communications. While innovation is frequently a question of firsts, often it involves taking an existing idea and improving it. Challenging established standards and introducing different approaches often signify innovation within the industry.
“Unified Communications (News
) has seen tremendous growth. Because of major advances in UC technologies and the number of new entries in this market, TMC Labs honors only those who made significant strides in advancing UC solutions with this Innovation Award,” said Tom Keating
, chief technology officer and executive technology editor for TMC Labs. “There were many entries, and while all entries should be commended for their efforts in the advancement of UC technologies, only a select few showed the most advanced innovations.”
Company revenue or number of products sold is not a factor in determining winners. The TMC Labs Innovation Award is based on the concept that the product or service demonstrates raw innovation and represents a significant contribution to the industry.
"TMC Labs has honored those companies that proved they upheld the highest standards in advancing unified communications solutions. Trend-setting companies that launched a new product or made an outstanding improvement to an existing application were singled out,” said Rich Tehrani
, TMC president and group editor-in-chief. “The TMC Labs engineers have extensive knowledge of the UC market and selected only those companies that proved their out-of-box thinking to transform the industry. My congratulations to all the winners."
TMC Labs is the communications industry’s only in-house testing lab providing objective testing and reviews.
TMC Labs Innovation Award winners will be published with individual in-depth reviews in Unified Communications
magazine’s May/June 2009 issue.
