Welcome to the December 2017 Newsletter.

It’s that most wonderful time of the year once again. Yes we’ve been making a list and checking it twice, and are happy to announce that nominations are now open for the 2018 Network Computing Awards. It’s now over to you, the readers of Network Computing Magazine to nominate the networking solutions, companies, projects and services that have impressed you the most in the past twelve months by visiting the awards website

We’re introducing several new categories for the 2018 Awards based on feedback from readers and suppliers alike, the first of which is the Customer Service Award. Which suppliers are doing the most to ensure you get the best possible use out of their technology? We’d love to hear you thoughts. Other new categories this year include the Cloud Telephony Product of the Year and SD-WAN Vendor of the Year.

Submissions are also now open for the Network Project of the Year category. If you would like to enter a project for consideration then please submit a case study that details the customer and the challenges they were facing, which supplier(s) they called on to help them, what the supplier(s) did to help, and finally what results the customer has seen since the work was completed. If the work is still ongoing, or if the full benefits of the work are yet to be realised, the project can still be entered provided the case study can reference some benefits that the customer has seen already.

The nominations stage of the awards closes on January 18th, with voting on the eventual winners opening shortly thereafter. The awards ceremony itself will be held on March 22nd at the Radisson Blu Edwardian in London. So please do visit the awards site in the next few weeks and make your nominations count!
