Among the 300 exhibitors the MicroKloud was selected by the judges as Best in Show for having the Best Cloud Solution for the entire expo. This prestigious recognition was based on creativity and technological innovation, placing an emphasis on a product's feature set, its innovative qualities, usability, ability to work with existing standards and products, and the degree to which it contributes to the development of future communications products and services.
