Cable Gets Some Leading Lights Love
Although the annual Leading Lights Awards is historically rooted in the telco word, technologies and services with a cable twist aren't being ignored, as Light Reading gears up for its fifth annual look at the companies, products, and people that are shaping next-gen communications.
Here's a quick peek at where finalists from cable-land have shown up and who they'll be up against for this year's Awards, which will be revealed at an exclusive, invitation-only gala dinner on Monday, Oct. 20, following the first day of Light Reading's Ethernet Expo 2008. (Hey, cable's digging deep into Ethernet, too. It's not just a telco-thing.)
Comcast Corp. (Nasdaq: CMCSA, CMCSK) was nominated in the Best New Service category for its Extreme High-Speed Internet service. And the Top IPO or M&A Candidate category includes finalists Casa Systems Inc. and RGB Networks Inc.
For more detail about The Leading Lights, who made the cut thus far, and how you, dear reader, can participate in the process, please check out the broader story detailing this year's Awards finalists: LR Names 2008 Leading Lights Finalists .
