"We give a heartfelt thanks to all those who contributed to making the evening a success.” said Scott Bicheno, editorial director of Telecoms.com

The Global Telecoms Awards, now in their 4th year, shine a spotlight on the industry’s most innovative companies and recognise innovation and excellence across the board.

Of course none of this would have been possible without our judges and our sponsors; Huawei, Amdocs and Nominum.

Well done everyone who entered, and we look forward to seeing your work again next year.
