Winners of the NetEvents Technology Innovation Awards 2013 announced

From “Ethernet Idol” Andy Bechtolsheim to Verizon for Best New Carrier Ethernet Business Service – eight category winners announced at high profile gala dinner celebrating 40 years of Ethernet innovation.

Winners of the NetEvents Innovation Awards 2013 were announced during Ethernet’s 40th Birthday Party at the Computer History Museum, Mountain View, USA. The annual Innovation Awards honor organizations and individuals that lead the world by innovation and performance in the networking and telecommunications sector. All proceeds from the awards, gala dinner and charity auction are being donated to the Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) education project.

Innovation Awards 2013

This year’s Awards – hosted as part of the two-day Ethernet birthday celebrations viewed by audiences across the globe thanks to Carrrier Ethernet broadcast services from Comcast and Tata Communications – included an honourary award for ‘The Greatest Contribution to the Networking Age’ which was presented to Bob Metcalfe, co-inventor of Ethernet & UT Austin Professor of Innovation.

An additional “Ethernet Idol” award category for the individual considered to have successfully picked up the mantle from the original inventors and made the most outstanding individual contribution to Ethernet in the past 15 years was won by industry legend Andy Bechtolsheim.

Bob Metcalfe says, “It’s ironic that Andy would be voted ‘Ethernet Idol’ for his work in the LAST 15 years of Ethernet when he was my Ethernet Idol for the FIRST 15 years.”
