Light Reading has done networking/telecom industry proud, but putting together “people’s choice awards” of the business of broadband. Their picks, while predictable at times are well informed and justified. I got give a big shout-out to Scott and his boys for starting these awards. “We received more than 325 awards entries and each entry was read, weighted, researched, discussed, and fussed over.” Big winners: Juniper Networks, Cisco, Alcatel, Motorola, Vodafone, Skype, Big Band Networks and of course everyone’s darling, Vonage. Can’t wait to see who are next year’s winners, because by then we will know this year’s losers.
