The heat is on, not only in many parts of the world this week, but in our monthly countdown of the channel’s top stories.

The biggest story of the year thus far – bankruptcy – continued its strong pull for your attention in June. Fusion’s chapter 11 announcement and updates to the Windstream saga both cracked our top 12.

Some other familiar stories made it too. Our monthly Channel People on the Move feature, a public cloud rankings story dating back to February, and a list of “hot certifications” still riding the popularity wave 18 months after posting all made it as well.

Ah, but there was plenty of new blood, from a list of 20 top hosted PBX providers, to a new Avaya UCaaS platform, to an important cybersecurity play by Telarus.

How do we compile our top 12, you ask? It’s through a combination of online page views and popularity in our weekly newsletters. You can have a hand in influencing this countdown. Sign up now for our newsletter that arrives in your inbox on Wednesday mornings.
