Start-ups always have the zeal and faith that what they are doing is right, helpful and transformative. It's nice when that vision gets validated from analysts and press, especially critical, show-me-the-proof ones. I'm very pleased that Alianza has received that recognition from Light Reading.
Our hosted NFV VoIP solution has been picked as a finalist in the 2015 Leading Lights awards for Most Innovative NFV Product Strategy category. While the exact winner has yet to be announced, it is still validating to be on the short list (even if this list is rather long) given the competition and the tough bar that Light Reading demands that you clear.
This is the second time that Alianza has been in the running for Leading Lights award. In 2013, Level 3 Carrier Cloud Voice, our joint solution with Level 3, was a finalist for the Most Innovative Carrier Cloud Service. This also comes on the heels of our NFV Pioneer Award from TMC last month.
The winners will be announced on the eve of this year's Big Telecom Event. You can find Alianza at that event in booth 206 showcasing this exact solution. Please join us in Chicago; it will be a fantastic two days of education and networking. If you are a service provider, we got the code to get you free access. Just ask us!
