About this Category

The Best Mobile Network Infrastructure Award recognizes the importance of the fundamental elements of the mobile network; the Radio Access Network (RAN), the transport and back haul and the Core Network (CN). These make up the ‘engine room’ of any mobile operator’s network and are paramount to the success of any operator’s business. This award is specifically looking for entries that demonstrate substantial reductions to the life cycle costs of operating a network.

This award is open to all players in the mobile sector and all participating organisations that are developing a wide range of advanced mobile infrastructure solutions.
