Yes, folks, it’s that time of the year again. No, not for your extended summer vacation at the beach, but for Mobile Enterprise to recognize the finest mobile deployments of the year with our annual Mobilizer Awards.
In our most competitive contest yet, we fielded dozens and dozens of entries detailing large, medium and small mobile deployments. Judging such a large number of entrants was challenging, and the winners were often separated by one point in our internal scoring system. Making the final decision typically rested on a few key details in each case study. Be sure to check out our awards section starting on page 21 to read about this year’s exciting winners and runners-up.
When we weren’t busy adjudicating entries, we managed to find the time to cull and deliver some informative articles about mobility and the enterprise. Have you heard of MVNOs?
