The event, held last night alongside a gala dinner at Dubai's Grosvenor House hotel, attracted networking professionals from across the vendor, customer and channel partner landscapes, where they were recognised for their achievements and commitment to the regional industry over the last year.

Accolades at the NME Innovation Awards, the longest-running of its kind in the Middle East, were handed down to for the best technology providers, professionals and projects in the region.

Highlights during the evening included: Fijo George of Dubai's RTA walking away with the Networking Professional of the Year award, HP Networks picking up the prize for Networking Vendor of the Year, and Orbit Showtime Network collecting the gong for Best Data Centre Project.

"The Network Middle East Innovation Awards showcase the region's foremost networking projects, vendors and professionals. The quality of entrants for this year's awards was stronger than ever, plainly illustrating the Middle East's status as a centre of innovation in ICT and networking," said Walid Akawi, CEO, ITP Publishing.
