ip.access wins World Vendor Award
Cambridge innovator recognised as Best Specialist Vendor
The World Vendor Awards are the only independent impartial awards for telecom vendors. Last night saw ip.access chosen as Best Specialist Vendor ahead of stiff competition from companies such as Ipanema Technologies, Mformation, RAD and Telmap.
The World Vendor Awards' judging panel described ip.access as "an excellent example of a company that has specialised in a core market area and gained some significant traction." The judges added that the company has "a specific solution to address a specific need" and that it "leads a growing market."
One judge hailed ip.access as "a great technological story with a real product range and great customer stories."
Commenting on the Award win, ip.access CEO Stephen Mallinson said: "This is great news and another ringing endorsement of our approach, our technology, and most of all our delivery of femtocell and picocell solutions to operators all over the world."
