2011 Computerworld Laureate

IDG’s Computerworld Honors Program today announces S-NET Communications as a 2011 Laureate. The annual award program honors visionary applications of information technology promoting positive social, economic and educational change.

“The number and quality of nominations this year were very inspiring and demonstrate how valuable IT is to community change,” said John Amato, Publisher, Computerworld. “Computerworld is very proud to name the 2011 class of Laureates and showcase their initiatives benefiting society through innovative uses of IT.”

According to Alex Fayn, President of S-NET Communications, “The significance of being selected as a Laureate in the Computerworld Honors Program for our organization is tremendous. It represents peer recognition of the efforts we have made in the development of our product family and the contribution it can make to this country!”

S-NET Communications has deployed the S-NET Q Box powered by ViBE to guarantee voice quality and reliability on its Silver Networks Hosted Virtual Pbx platform. It allows businesses to use less expensive bandwidth to carry their voice traffic. A simple low cost ADSL line (under $20 in most markets) can handle up to 28 simultaneous calls with guaranteed business grade quality of service and failover. This allows business locations that were previously either under-served or un-economical to service due to poor infrastructure, the ability to have reliable and economical connectivity. Bridging the digital divide remains one of the crucial factors in economic recovery and the deployment of the S-NET Q Box powered by ViBE along with S-NET Communication’s Silver Networks cloud communications services is a significant leap forward in reaching this goal.

The Computerworld Honors awards will be presented at the Annual Laureates Medal Ceremony & Gala Awards on June 20, 2011 at the Andrew W. Mellon Auditorium in Washington, D.C.
