The LTE North America Awards have attracted an array of entries this year to compete in the 8 LTE-focused categories. The ceremony, which takes place on 14th November 2012 at the Fairmont Hotel in Dallas, Texas, will see those shortlisted, competing with each other to secure one of the 8 prestigious LTE North America Awards.

This year, we introduced two brand new categories; ‘Best Backhauling Solution’ and ‘Most Innovative LTE Application/Service’. Both received a significant amount of interest from entrants, reflecting the progression made in the North American LTE industry.

Sam Oakley, Events Manager of the LTE World Series commented: “The judges have had an extremely difficult task to narrow down a shortlist of companies as we’ve been inundated with high quality, innovative entries this year.

“To beat off the competition and get through to the final shortlist is a real testament to the hard work and excellence shown by these service and solution providers. The high level of quality entries also shows the prestige of the LTE North America Awards, which ensures global and industry-respected recognition for those who are shortlisted.”
