What else made it? And which was No. 1?

If you’re like me, it seems we’re two years into this COVID-19 crisis, not two months. The pandemic continues to dominate the headlines — and that includes in the channel. And our 12 top stories is an example of that.

We are keeping you up to date with the latest on channel relief efforts. Companies such as Windstream are doing what they can to help customers and partners make it through while saving a buck. That and other efforts are why we created a COVID-19 Help series. It is dedicated to news, analysis, webinars and more that focus on the industry’s – and the world’s – biggest topic.

But you’ll find much more than just COVID-19 highlights in the monthly countdown of our 12 top stories.

UCaaS and SD-WAN remain the most popular technologies in the channel, and even more so since the onset of the coronavirus. Rankings featuring leaders in both made our list, because you asked for them.

Elsewhere, controversy fired you up. Take Zoom’s security issues, for instance. You were interested in the blowback as the number of the video conference’s users continued to rise.

A story on CompTIA’s many certifications going online got your attention. And Frontier Communications’ debt load finally caught up with the telecommunications provider.

So many from which to choose, but which was No. 1? We show you in the gallery below.

But you’re not taking our word for it. This is your call! Our rankings come via those articles that generated the most traffic online and click-throughs from our weekly newsletters. Don’t miss your opportunity to sign up for the channel’s hottest newsletter, delivered to your inbox weekly. Because no one wants to wait until the first of the month to read about the most popular topics in the channel.
