It’s never a dull day in the world of telecommunications and information technology — particularly when it comes to issues that impact the channel.

Whether it’s surprising M&A, sudden departures or promotions, changes in channel strategy, and new products and services aimed at disruption, there’s always something newsworthy happening.

Also from time to time, we see controversy — such as the ongoing escalation of class-action lawsuits against CenturyLink, Avaya’s chapter 11 bankruptcy filing, labor issues with carriers, and Toshiba Telecom’s surprise shutdown and sale. These are the stories that get the industry – and the channel – buzzing.

In this gallery, we revisit this year’s controversies and provide a look forward.
