Light Reading is set to present the winners of the 2012 Leading Lights Awards and five new entrants into the Light Reading Hall of Fame on Wednesday, Nov. 7, at the Hilton New York.

The awards were judged by Light Reading editors, with help from Heavy Reading and Pyramid Research analysts, and feedback from our network of sources throughout the industry.

Please refer to Light Reading's 2012 Leading Lights Finalists -- or you can click on a category name, below, for blogged explanations of why each finalist caught our editors' eyes.



The Leading Lights program focuses on next-generation communications technology, applications, and services, and it rewards the companies that have performed well over the past year. Light Reading's Hall of Fame seeks to recognize several individuals -- the famous and infamous -- for their remarkable influence and contributions to the sector.

The HoF is under construction, but each year we remind you of past nominees and inductees. We're working on that part now. Stay tuned. Or whatever we're supposed to say on the Web.

Maybe. If the change is significant enough.


It's up to you to convince the category editor that the product you're nominating is SO DIFFERENT than what precdeded it that it MUST be considered new.


My favorite example is the Windows product line from Microsoft. Yes, Microsoft has called every PC operating system it made since 1982 "Windows." But Windows '95 and Windows XP were very different products, even though they both ended up being great excuses to switch to a Mac.

From a PR practiioner:


Is this award geared toward service providers only, or would a software/services vendor qualify?


Answer:


Our past winners have included Apple, Microsoft and all the major telecom equipment makers. Any company creating products and services for next-gen communications networks may enter.
