The annual VSA competition highlights both channel and service provider innovation in communications. The awards honor outstanding products, services and deployments across numerous categories.

Editors from Beka Business Media as well as a panel of judges from independent industry resources will award nominations based on a set of evaluation criteria including overall innovation, future industry impact of the nominated product or service, creativity and feature set differentiation, and ease of use and interoperability. Award winners will exemplify the communications industry’s overall level of rapid innovation. Winning entries will show off a cornucopia of opportunities for channel partners to boost their roles as trusted providers for business success.

With a new decade upon us, one that will be driven by big data, digital transformation, software-defined everything and connectivity, the 2020 VSAs feature a brand new Overall Excellence award for Digital Transformation and a Business Technology award for Software-Defined Interconnection (SDI).

The 2020 Visionary Spotlight Honorees will be recognized with an official media introduction, including a magazine feature in the May/June 2020 issue of ChannelVision Magazine, and a series of online spotlights.
