A judging panel of 16 consultants, technical journalists and service providers from the communications industry selected the Eos Award winners and runners-up, who will be recognized during a special reception at NXTcomm on Wednesday, June 20, 2007 in Chicago, IL.
"Our exhibitors truly raised the bar this year, resulting in fierce competition," said Wayne Crawford, NXTcomm Executive Director. "Awards were given in 12 far-reaching categories, demonstrating NXTcomm's enormous reach. In addition to traditional categories like backbone, core and edge technologies, Eos awards were also presented for achievement in home networking, IPTV, advanced mobile services, and strategic support. Each Eos winner deserves significant praise for its leadership, innovation, and role in driving our industry forward."
“We are thrilled to be selected for this Eos award,” said Gil Biran, Founder, President, and Chief Strategy Officer of Axerra Networks. “Our Pseudo-Wire technology is enabling a new era in mobile wireless backhaul and service delivery, bringing significant benefits to virtually every kind of service provider. To have our AXN10-8NR access device recognized by a distinguished panel of judges and honored at a major event such as NXTcomm is very exciting.”
