Congratulations Avaya, for being named one of the seven “Best of VoiceCon” finalists

The 2010 Best of VoiceCon Awards

The Best of VoiceCon Awards recognize exhibitors that have made significant technological advancements. The winners represent the products that the judges believe have the most significant technical impact, and are helping to move enterprise communications forward.

There were more than 40 entries for Best of VoiceCon, which for the first time ever is a juried award, with entries evaluated by a panel of industry experts. The finalists represent a good mix of companies large and small, as well as products representing broad-scale communications platforms as well as point products aimed at security and management.

One of the reasons why they made this a juried award was that they wanted to give the award a higher profile and do their part to stimulate a heightened sense of competition among the companies in the industry. Communications equipment vendors and service providers have always tried to innovate, but in the coming decade, their ability to do so will make or break companies and the industry itself.

Between now and VoiceCon, the judging panel will be taking briefings with each of the finalists, letting them make their case and answering questions, in preparation for the vote to select the Best of VoiceCon winner. We are excited to see how it all goes.

The winners will be announced on Wednesday, March 24, 9 AM, from the VoiceCon keynote stage.

Judges for Best of VoiceCon are:

* Fred Knight, VoiceCon GM and Co-chair;
* Michael Finneran, President, dBrn Associates;
* Marty Parker, Principal, UniComm Consulting;
* Sorell Slaymaker, Communications Architect, Unified IT Systems;
* David Stein, Principal, PlanNet Consulting; and
* Allan Sulkin, President, TEQConsult Group.
