Network Middle East launches its third annual Innovation Awards, opening nominations from around the region across 17 different categories.
|~|awards200x.jpg|~||~|Once again Network Middle East is setting out to honour the best in the regional networking sector, with the third annual NME Innovation Awards.
As in previous years, we want to hear about the best the Middle East has to offer, in terms of people, vendors – and most importantly in terms of networking projects.
The 17 categories in this year’s awards are listed below, and cover implementations, vendor offerings and key individuals and organisations in the regional networking community.
A team of expert judges – to be announced within the next few weeks – will decide 13 of the awards, but four categories will be voted on by you, the readers of NME.
The reader-voted awards will include two of the implementation categories – best wireless implementation, and most innovative use of new technology. Ahead of the awards, NME will showcase the shortlisted nominations online and in print.
To make these awards a success, we need to hear from you – what were the key technologies that rocked your world? Which vendor or integrator gave the best support? And what were the most successful implementations of the past 12 months?
Nominations for all the categories are now open – full details of how to enter are available on the NME Awards website (www.itp.net/nmeawards). Please note that there are early deadlines for the reader-voted implementation categories, in order to give us time to publish them in the magazine.
If you have any queries on the awards, please contact the Editor on email@example.com - otherwise, good luck, and get nominating!||**||NME Innovation Awards 2007 – award categories|~||~||~| Best fixed network implementation
