London, October 7, 2003 – Network technology company Sandvine Incorporated has been honoured with a 2003 World Communication Award (WCA), the premier technology accolade for the global telecommunications industry.
Sandvine’s Peer-To-Peer Policy Management platform won the award for “Best Technology Foresight.” It allows broadband service providers to better manage the impact of peer-to-peer (P2P) file sharing activity on their networks.
Co-sponsored by Total Telecom Magazine (www.totaltele.com) and the European Competitive Telecommunications Association (ECTA), the World Communication Awards celebrate telecoms excellence, setting an annual league table of European companies and technologies that have the “potential for far reaching effect” on business or consumer markets. Winners were announced last night at the London Hilton Park Lane.

WCA 2003 drew 163 entries from 77 companies. A total of thirty (30) companies were shortlisted in at least one of 11 categories. Finalists included major-brand operators and vendors like BT Wholesale, Virgin Mobile, AT&T, Equant, NTT Communications, Belgacom, Vodafone and SingTel.
