I am delighted to announce that Openwave Mobility’s innovation and expertise in SDN has been recognized by TMCnet. Our Integra Platform won TMC’s 2013 Excellence in SDN Award which is an amazing achievement considering that many vendors are still trying to establish how to utilize the technology! This accolade would not be possible without our fantastic team, who continue to work hard to keep Openwave Mobility one step ahead of the competition and ensure that our customers receive the very best in SDN and NFV technology and expertise.

SDN has been considered by some industry visionaries to be one of the most important and disruptive developments in networking since the rise of the internet, changing the networking focus to applications. TMC’s 2013 Excellence in SDN recognized leaders advancing SDN technologies and companies that are key in shaping this quickly evolving industry. Other companies noted for their achievements in SDN also included OpenDaylight Project, the community-led open source platform aimed at accelerating the adoption of SDN and NFV.
