ISCO International Receives “Next Great Idea in Wireless” Award From Acclaimed Stevens Institute of Technology
ISCO International, Inc. (AMEX: ISO), a leading wireless telecommunications solutions provider, announced today it has received the "Next Great Idea in Wireless" Award as part of the annual Howe School conference: "The Rebirth of Location-Based Services: The Next Great Idea."
ISCO International is a leading supplier of radio frequency management and interference-control solutions for the wireless telecommunications industry. Clarity, a subsidiary, specializes in the design, development and deployment of solutions for mobile devices and wireless networks.The award is bestowed annually to companies that demonstrate pioneering ideas in technology and further the state and art of mobile communications.
"We are honored to receive this award," said Gordon Reichard Jr., ISCO president and CEO. "We feel that our engineers -- and marketers alike -- have blazed a trail against a competitive landscape while bringing exceptional new value to our customers. It's good to get recognition for those accomplishments."
The conference, held last month in New Jersey, addressed the resurgence of location-based technologies in telecommunications environments. Panels and keynotes focused on current and future business applications -- and how they will benefit from wider availability of location data. The conference was co-sponsored by the Stevens Institute of Technology and the New York-based investment bank, the Kaufman Brothers.
"The Howe School and Stevens really appreciate the participants and the honorees supporting this important conference," said Jan Klein, a professor in The Howe School of Technology Management at Stevens, and the driving force behind the event. "I think the attendees would agree that it was a thorough and fascinating preview of what is to come in the next generation of wireless and LBS."
