The next-generation communications industry’s most coveted honor

Congratulations to our 2019 winners

The Leading Lights Awards recognize the industry's top companies and their executives for their outstanding achievements in next-generation communications technology, applications, services, strategies, and innovation. Light Reading’s reputation for fiercely independent analysis of the people, products, and companies it covers makes this the most credible and authoritative awards program in the industry.

The 2019 Leading Lights Awards winners were announced at a gala dinner attended by hundreds of communications industry executives at the Grand Hyatt Denver Hotel's Pinnacle Club in the Mile High City. 

Leading Lights Winners On Fire!

We invited our 2019 Leading Lights awards winners to share their thoughts with the Light Reading video crew. 

The winners were chosen following the judging of hundreds of submissions in 22 categories, which included recognition for those companies making progress in 5G, AI/Analytics, edge computing, blockchain, SD-WAN, Telco Cloud and many more. The finalists were announced in April. (See Leading Lights 2019: The Finalists.)
