Malden Electronics conducted the technical testing for three award categories: Best

Consumer VoIP; Best Business ITSP (Micro); and Best Business (SMEs). Entrants in these

categories underwent two months of technical testing. Separately, entrants to all categories

had to complete a written self-assessment, which were independently reviewed by the ITSPA

Awards judges. The ITSPA Members’ Pick was a selected shortlist from the membership,

outlining companies and services who they believed had provided real value to the industry in

recent years.

Eli Katz, ITSPA Chairman, said, “Congratulations to all the winners, those companies highly

commended as well as the finalists. I’m pleased that we have expanded the award categories

this year, which have been well received by the entrants. This year we have seen more

companies entering the awards as well as joining the association and I welcome this

opportunity to celebrate their innovation and best practice.”

Linus Surguy, Director from Magrathea, said, “Magrathea is proud to continue its support of

the ITSPA Awards and believe it is important to recognise the success stories of the industry.

Congratulations to the winners and finalists and we look forward to the healthy competition

continuing in the future.”

The ITSPA Council is keen to build on this success and welcome all entrants, both members

and non-members to participate in the work of the trade association going forward. There are

a number of initiatives and networking events that ITSPA has planned for 2012 and the trade

body welcomes participation from all those who are interested.

The 2012 ITSPA Awards were open to all those in the VoIP space, including those who were

not members of ITSPA.
