WAYNE, NJ—NBS may not be a household name like some of its competitors (read Phone.com and RingCentral) but the veteran company is winning some attention from the industry’s leading magazine.
TMC, the publisher of Internet Telephony magazine, has named NBS V.o.I.C.E. as a winner of its 2011 Internet Telephony Product of the Year Award. In fact, it’s the third year in a row that NBC has received recognition from Internet Telephony.
