We are honored to announce that Accedian won the award for Best Mobile Technology Enabler in this year's GSMA GLOMO Awards, recognized for our technology's ability to provide the real-time, network-wide view of performance and quality of experience (QoE) that acts as the nervous system driving SK Telecom’s software-defined network (SDN), a big data analytics driven, multi-vendor environment. 

The award was presented at a ceremony during Mobile World Congress 2016 in Barcelona, Spain. Accedian was also nominated by the GSMA’s CTO office for overall outstanding mobile technology.

Accedian has worked closely with SK Telecom to enable one of the world’s few large-scale commercial SDNs, and showcase the immense impact that the virtualisation of key technologies and processes (NFV) can have on overcoming technical complexity, driving efficiency, and creating new revenue-generating services. SK Telecom has deployed a fully automated network that optimizes user experience in real-time—without human intervention—bringing notable advancements in machine learning.

"In collaboration with Accedian, the solution was developed and applied to our commercial network to play an important role in providing our customers with the best mobile experience," explained Lee Jong-bong, Executive Vice President and Head of Infra Division of SK Telecom. "Our efforts will continue to develop more innovative network technologies and solutions to further enhance network performance and quality for our customers."

"This award underlines our position as a market leading provider of virtualised network performance assurance solutions," said Patrick Ostiguy, CEO, Accedian. "But more importantly, it’s a fantastic validation of the value that we’re able to bring to our operator and service provider customers."
