INTRACOM TELECOM achieved an exceptional distinction for its fs|cdn™ platform for the delivery of integrated voice-video-data (Triple-Play) services at NTCA Expo 07 in the US. The fs|cdn™ platform was nominated as one of the top 10 hottest technologies among the proposals of over 150 companies participating, and it is worthwhile mentioning that from the awarded products, INTRACOM TELECOM's solution was the only IPTV technology product.
"For these awards, our judges selected those displays whose creativity exhibited the same visionary characteristics the "Hot Technology" section exemplifies. All winners demonstrated innovative use of space and messaging to reach out to Expo participants seeking the latest and greatest technological developments the industry has to offer" stated Christina Childs, the expo organizer.
The exhibition took place early in February in Orlando, Florida and was organized by the National Telecommunications Cooperative Association (NTCA), which represents more than 570 small and rural telephone cooperatives and commercial companies in the USA. INTRACOM TELECOM participated through its subsidiary Conklin - INTRACOM, based in Atlanta.
