Jun 23, 2012 (Close-Up Media via COMTEX) --
FreeWave Technologies, Inc., a manufacturer of high-performance spread spectrum and licensed radios for critical data transmission, has been awarded the American Technology Award (ATA) for outstanding achievement in the Smart Grid and Smart Instrument Category for its FGR2-PE wireless data radio.
According to a release, also known as the Termans, in honor of Frederick Emmons Terman, the ATAs recognize products and services that have significantly advanced technology.
FreeWave's FGR2-PE wireless communications solution is design for Smart Grid, electric power and renewable energy applications as well as similar SCADA applications in other vertical markets, such as oil and gas and water/wastewater. The combination of two serial ports and two switched Ethernet ports offers customers the ability to transition from serial to Ethernet data communication without having to replace their wireless communication hardware down the road. Moreover, users can operate both serial and Ethernet communication independently and simultaneously on the same platform.
"FreeWave is very appreciative to have one of its top-selling products for the Smart Grid honored for this very special industry award," said Ashish Sharma, chief marketing officer of FreeWave Technologies. "We take great pride in ensuring every single one of our products is based on not only meeting a clear customer need, but, is thoroughly tested and put through the rigors of extreme temperature fluctuations before ever leaving our manufacturing floor. It is the reason why we have more than 800,000 radios working in the field today."
"The quality of nominees for this year's Termans is a clear indication of the vibrancy of the American technology industry and we are thrilled to be able to recognize FreeWave Technologies for its contribution to the industry and its outstanding achievement," said Jennifer Kerber, president of the TechAmerica Foundation.
The Termans were presented at a gala dinner in Washington, D.C.
