The Catalyst project – called “A Platform for IoT and Anything as a Service” – won the highest honor at the industry event. The Catalyst team, championed by service provider Vodafone, takes home the “Outstanding Performance in the Catalyst Program” award for spotlighting how operators can create new revenue streams by leveraging platform-based models to deliver IoT-based services.
