Sonus Networks (Nasdaq: SONS), a global leader in SIP communications, announced today that the company was named to the 2013 InformationWeek 500 List of Top Technology Innovators across the U.S. InformationWeek annually recognizes the leading 500 companies that have made the most innovative use of information technology in their business. This year marks the second consecutive year that Sonus has appeared in InformationWeek’s list of top technology innovators.

Sonus received the award in recognition of its 2013 companywide UC deployment, featuring Microsoft Lync with Enterprise Voice and SBCs. Since implementing the solution in early 2013, Sonus has enhanced collaboration across its worldwide operations. Sonus has realized significant cost savings as a result of network consolidation and internally hosting audio/videoconferencing applications — even as conferencing minutes within the company increased.

Quotes:

“Information technology can drive business innovation by improving collaboration, discovering new opportunities and accelerating time-to-market of new products and services,” said Bill Scudder, Sonus CIO. “Our strategic approach to IT underpins the quality of experience we strive to deliver to our customers and channel partners. We are honored that InformationWeek has once again recognized Sonus as a leading example of how digital businesses can use IT to foster innovation within their own business.”

“The theme of this year’s InformationWeek 500 is digital business. It’s a movement rooted in data analytics, mobile computing, social networking and other customer-focused technologies that are turning companies and industries on their ear,” said InformationWeek Editor in Chief Rob Preston. “Every enterprise is now a digital business—or needs to become one fast. The organizations in our ranking are leading the way.”

Other Facts:

  • Sonus’ new UC solution connects more than 1,100 employees worldwide across nine regional offices and three continents
  • Sonus CIO Bill Scudder was named Mass Tech Leadership Council’s CIO of the Year in 2011
