Why you should enter the RANNYS 2017

Enter the only awards dedicated to recognising and promoting mobile network operator innovation in Radio Access Networks.

The RANNYs 2017, produced by Avren Events in association with The Mobile Network, will reward operators that have taken the initiative to push technical boundaries in Radio Access Networks.

Following the success of previous RANNYs – with winners including AT&T, SK Telecom, China Mobile, Swisscom and MBNL – we are delighted to announce that entries for the RANNYs 2017 are now open. This is a rare opportunity to recognise some of the most innovative developments in radio access network technologies.

Why enter the RANNYs?

  • Gain credible, industry-recognised acclaim from our expert neutral judging panel for the latest innovations in operator network developments
  • Demonstrate your innovation and market leadership to a senior, international audience
  • Interview with winning and shortlisted entrants shared with the global databases of TMN and Avren Events
  • (Plus – Winners receive a shiny trophy to display in your offices for all to see!)

The awards will be judged by an independent panel of leading analysts; chaired by The Mobile Network, the panel includes recognised experts from Senza Fili, Mobile Experts, EJL Wireless, Rethink Research, Real Wireless and Strategy Analytics. Many awards exist simply as a fundraising adjunct to a conference or exhibition, but the RANNYs are different in that they only serve to act as a showcase and a platform for the best work done in creating the best mobile networks.

The RANNYs will be awarded during RAN World in Barcelona on 19-20 September. The event prides itself on being a highly regarded, impartial gathering of senior decision makers responsible for meeting the needs of today’s network, and shaping plans for tomorrow’s RAN. This year’s detailed agenda will be led by Enrique Blanco, Global CTO of Telefόnica Group, with senior representatives from the likes of EE, Softbank, Vodafone, Orange, Elisa, velcom and many more.

TMN is pleased to support RAN World and the RANNYs thanks to its focus on operator-led technology and RAN innovation, a clear emphasis on discussing the real issues of today, and bringing a high calibre audience together in a unique event format.

Make sure you register online today for a free operator pass, and enter your work for the chance to win at the RANNYs. The great work transforming the network deserves a showcase, so don’t miss the chance to either enter your work, or witness the latest in network innovations.

The deadline for entries is 25th August 2017
