500 operators and vendors gathered at the Corinthian Grand Ballroom, San Jose, last night to celebrate an incredible year for our industry.
The Winners of the Wi-Fi Industry Awards highlight that the past 12 months have been a truly significant period of growth for Next Gen Wi-Fi. This message is underpinned by the diversity, depth and quality of this year’s entries, which more than anything showcase outstanding innovation and a growing confidence across all sectors of the industry.
