The Leading Lights program focuses on next-generation communications technology, applications and services, and it rewards companies that have performed well in the past year. The Public Company of the Year Award recognizes the publicly listed firm that stands out among its competitors, innovates constantly, makes investors proud and makes employees happy.

The company’s hosted, turnkey services enable small and medium-sized businesses to reduce upfront capital and ongoing expenses while increasing the functionality, flexibility and reach of their communications capabilities.

Leading Lights Awards winners will be announced Nov. 7 following the second day of Light Reading's Ethernet Expo at New York City's Manhattan Penthouse.
