Smart Grid, Smart Instrument Award Goes to FreeWave Radio

FreeWave Technologies, Inc., manufacturer of the most reliable, 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 popular FGR2-PE wireless data radio.

 FreeWave Technologies, Inc., manufacturer of the most reliable, 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 popular FGR2-PE wireless data radio. Also known as the Termans, in honor of Frederick Emmons Terman, the widely credited father of Silicon Valley, the ATAs recognize products and services that have significantly advanced technology.

 FreeWave’s FGR2-PE wireless communications solution is ideal for Smart Grid, electric power and renewable energy applications and is well-suited for similar SCADA applications in other vertical markets such as oil and gas and water/wastewater. The future-proof 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. The deployment flexibility of the FGR2-PE solution also reduces the need for additional hardware.

 The 2012 Termans were presented at a gala dinner in Washington D.C. featuring keynote addresses from Juniper Networks’ CEO Kevin Johnson, who received the American Technology Awards Corporate Leadership Award,  and Richard Spires, the CIO at the Department of Homeland Security and the Government Technology Executive of the Year recipient.

 “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. Terman winners are determined by a panel of industry experts and technology leaders, and more about the awards can be found on the TechAmerica Foundation website.(http://www.techamericafoundation.org/).

 TechAmerica Foundation educates industry executives, policy makers and opinion leaders on the promise of technological innovation to advance prosperity, security and the general welfare. Launched in 1981, the Foundation is a non-profit, non-partisan affiliate of TechAmerica, which is the leading voice and resource for the U.S. technology industry.

 “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.”
