Welcome to the April 2018 Newsletter.

Since our last newsletter the 2018 Network Computing Awards have taken place at the Radisson Blu Edwardian in London. Former cricketer Graham Cowdrey was Master of ceremonies for the night, presenting the trophies alongside comedian Patrick Monahan and Ray Smyth and Dave Bonner of Network Computing. Ray, the editor of Network Computing Magazine, this year chose NETSCOUT as the winners of the Bench Tested Product category for two products – the NETSCOUT LinkRunner G2 and AirCheck G2. Our review of the AirCheck G2 is included in this issue of the newsletter.

Other winners on the night included Allied Telesis, who won the New Product of the Year – Hardware category for the SwitchBlade x908 Generation 2 and were also runners-up in three other categories, Citrix, who won the newly introduced SD-WAN Vendor of the Year Award, and Natterbox, who scooped awards for both the Cloud Telephony and Software Product of the Year.

You’ll find more details on this year’s winners and runners-up on the awards website and in this issue of the newsletter, as well as a full round-up in the new issue of the magazine. We’d like to once again thank all of this year’s nominees, our awards sponsors and everyone who took the time to vote online for making March 22nd another great night for networking!
