Aachen/Berlin, November 5, 2015—On Monday, November 2, LANCOM Systems, Germany's leading manufacturer of networking solutions for the commercial and public sectors, was awarded the "Sustained Excellence" prize at the Technology Fast 50 Awards held by the auditing company Deloitte Deutschland in Berlin.
