When people think of award ceremonies it’s usually in the context of movies and TV. People seldom take a step back and consider the medium it comes through though. It’s telecommunications which makes those awards shows possible in the first place. So it should come as little surprise to find out that the telecommunications industry likes to honor special achievement there as well. One of the most notable of these is the Communications Solutions Products of the Year Award.
The award is given every year by the Technology Marketing Corporation in recognition of special achievements by a particular company or product. It’s always a notable event. But sometimes the winners are special enough to deserve a bit of extra attention. The recent winner of the award is easily one of these companies which deserves to have some extra accolades put its way.
The winner of the award, Talk Fusion, is well known to many people within the industry and outside of it as well. It was created in 2007 to address a more and more obvious issue with telecommunications in general. This was a few years past the point when smartphones as they’re known today were really entering the market. This seems like it should have been a milestone in communications. To some extent it is true that one could consider it a huge leap forward in how people communicate with each other. At the same time though, this leap forward also led to significant and increasingly notable fragmentation. Different companies in control of different parts of the overall system were trying to push things in different directions. Two smartphones made by two different companies were likely to be unable to properly communicate with each other using the optimal methods for any given protocol.
This is the situation Talk Fusion saw, and they knew that something needed to be done before it became too large a problem to address. The nature of their plan is clear from the name. Talk Fusion is a company whose purpose is the fusion of various forms of advanced communication into a single whole. They’re working hard to ensure that there’s no platform lockout between communication technologies. On top of that they’ve even managed to integrate seemingly diverse forms of communication such as email and video into a seamless whole that anyone can enjoy and employ.
