Service providers continue to wrestle with the challenge of virtualizing their networks, a move they hope will reduce costs and give them a service "agility" akin to that of the Internet players.

Despite evident frustration with long-running issues such as the interoperability of vendor equipment, some operators have made good progress on implementing or developing NFV deployment strategies in 2017. Light Reading's shortlist for this award features two very strong entries from WiFi specialist Boingo Wireless Inc. and cable giant Comcast Business .

The winner will be announced on Monday, May 14, at Brazos Hall in Austin, Texas. On the following day Light Reading's Big Communications Event opens its doors for two days of learning, networking and fun.
