Judges comments at the awards included the assessment that the software was "a good solution to replace antiquated construction design systems [and] looks easy to maintain and easy to use for almost any user".
“On behalf of the Broadband Technology Report's 2020 Diamond Technology Reviews, I would like to congratulate IQGeo on their 4 Diamonds honouree status. This program recognizes and rewards the top products and solutions available to the broadband cable industry. We appreciate all entries we received, though not all were honoured with 3.5 Diamonds or above”, said Stephen Hardy, chief editor of the Broadband Technology Report.
Jay Cadman, general manager Americas at IQGeo, said: “It is wonderful to be honoured by BTR two years in a row for the quality and innovation of our software solutions. The award for Network Manager is particularly exciting as it is a new product that has been very well received by the market, with initial installations already deployed with customers in North America and Europe”.
“These organisations are realizing the benefits that our mobile-first and cloud-first architecture brings to their businesses. Network Manager is optimized for the telecoms industry, helping them dramatically cut planning and design project costs and accelerate time-to-market. It’s excellent to see BTR, such a well-respected publication, recognize our contribution to digital transformation in the telecoms industry”, Cadman added.
