Total Telecom has launched the entry campaign for the 2016 World Communication Awards (WCA). This years awards will be the 18th annual event and will once again incorporate the IoTA, the dedicated award categories for the Internet of Things.

This year there are 22 categories including 6 for the IoTA most of which will be assessed by the expert panel of judges, led once again by Tony Lavender, Partner and Chief Executive Officer of Plum Consulting. The exceptions to this are the prestigious Users’ Choice category where the winner is determined by research amongst end users, conducted in association with our category partner Ocean82, and the CEO of the Year which is voted for by the industry.

In 2015 we saw particularly strong submissions from AT&T, Ooredoo and Singtel who all won multiple awards, whilst the individual categories were awarded to Timotheus Hottges of Deutsche Telekom, for CEO of the Year and Matthew Finnie of Interoute for CTO of the Year – both were present to collect their trophies.

The categories brochure is now available to download with the entry deadline set at the 22 July 2016. The winners will be named in London on the 29 November 2016 with the gala dinner being held at Supernova on the Victoria Embankment.

Confirmed sponsors for 2016 include platinum partner Tata Communications Transformation Services, Netgem, and PCCW Global.

The full categories list is published below, and includes opportunities for operators and service providers, Internet of Things specialists, as well as vendors and suppliers to the industry. We anticipate especially strong entries in the Broadband Pioneer and Digital Service Provider categories, as well as for the IoTA categories.
