Affirmed Networks is pleased to announce they have again been selected as a Finalist for the 2019 Global Mobile Awards 2019 (GLOMO Awards), as part of the official show program at MWC 2019 taking place in Barcelona, February 25-28, 2019. Marking the third time that Affirmed Networks has been nominated as a finalist in these prestigious awards, the company is once again recognized for its virtualized Evolved Packet Core (vEPC) solution that is deployed in the networks of some of the world’s largest telecom operators.
Affirmed Networks is competing in the category “Best Mobile Network Infrastructure,” which is focused on “the importance of the fundamental elements of the mobile network,” and looks for entries that “demonstrate substantial reductions to the life cycle costs of operating a network.”
Affirmed’s webscale mobile core helps Mobile Network Operators move from inflexible, legacy, hardware-based solutions to a highly automated, agile, software-based solution running on Commercial-off-the-Shelf servers that reduces overall total cost of ownership by as much as 75%. The industry’s most widely-deployed mobile core (vEPC), Affirmed Networks’ webscale mobile core is currently in the networks of more than 95 CSPs globally, including Tier One operators in each major geography.
The awards are judged by independent experts, analysts, journalists, academics, and, in some cases, mobile operator representatives. Winners of the awards will be presented throughout MWC19.
“The GLOMOs provide a world stage on which to celebrate the most inspirational and innovative developments across our industry, recognising the companies and individuals leading the way in everything from 5G, to emerging markets, to intelligent connectivity,” said John Hoffman, CEO, GSMA Ltd. “The awards attract a significant level of high-quality entries, so being nominated today is a great achievement. We wish everyone the very best of luck and we look forward to some exciting announcements at MWC19 Barcelona.”
From the entire team at Affirmed Networks we are honored to be named as a Finalist for this important industry award. Our continued success would not be possible without the support of our customers, and our dedicated and talented team that is focused on helping operators transform their networks as they prepare for 5G. We would like to congratulate all the other worthy entries and finalists for their role in helping our industry progress to a new era of growth and profitability.
