PLANO, TEXAS--(Marketwired - May 15, 2013) - Tektronix Communications, the world's first full-service telecommunications intelligence provider (TIP), today announced that its Radio Access Network Solutions was named a finalist in the Network Infrastructure - Wide Area Network category of CTIA's annual Emerging Technology (E-Tech) Awards competition.
