Company also recognized with “Supplier Thought Leader” award at NGT Euro Summit.
FREMONT, Calif., May 10, 2012 - Actelis®, The Broadband Acceleration Company™, has been named a finalist in the Telecommunications category for the 2012 TechAmerica Foundation American Technology Awards (ATA’s). The ATA’s cross the technology industry, recognizing technology products and services like Actelis’ Broadband Accelerator (BBA).
Commenting on the nomination, Vivek Ragavan, president and CEO of Actelis, said: “We’re delighted the Actelis BBA has been nominated as a finalist for this prestigious award. Actelis believes that carriers in the U.S. and abroad can view the digital divide as an opportunity, not a challenge, to accelerate their business success by significantly increasing their broadband penetration rates and coverage area for DSL-based services.”
Actelis’ BBA is the quickest, most effective solution to address these unserved and underserved subscribers, and further strengthens the company’s ongoing business strategy to accelerate universal broadband services to every residential subscriber in America, regardless of their location. After installing a BBA, broadband rates can be boosted by as much as 100% on typical loops and more than 400% on long loops, delivering the necessary bandwidth to meet the FCC’s broadband goals of 4:1.
“The caliber of this year’s nominees was incredible. Our judges had their work cut out for them,” said Jennifer Kerber, president of the TechAmerica Foundation. “We congratulate Actelis for their outstanding work and thank them for their contribution to the growth and innovation of our vibrant tech industry.”
Winners will be announced at the Technology and Government gala dinner in Washington, D.C., on June 13, 2012. The awards, also known as the “Termans” in honor of the widely credited father of Silicon Valley, are awarded on the basis of a thorough evaluation by industry experts and technology leaders.
Actelis Wins “Supplier Thought Leader” Award
In other award-related news, Actelis also picked up the “Supplier Thought Leader” award at last week’s NGT Euro Summit in Kilkenny, Ireland. Senior-level executives, including CIOs and CTOs from the world’s most recognizable brands, met with industry-leading telecom manufacturers to discuss the latest technologies, trends and business models for delivering broadband services.
“The objective of the summit was to engage the world’s leading service providers with the industry’s most innovative manufacturers to discuss the telecom challenges facing our industry, such as delivering on the promise of universal broadband, leveraging the cloud, and maximizing network assets and investment that will future proof networks and accelerate new revenue opportunities,” said Joe Manuele, executive vice president of worldwide sales and customer support at Actelis. “For Actelis to be recognized among this highly esteemed peer group is a testament to our rich culture of technology innovation for accelerating broadband adoption around the globe.”
The American Technology Award and NGT “Supplier Thought Leader” Award join the growing list of industry recognition Actelis has received this year. Others include INTERNET TELEPHONY’s Product of the Year award for Actelis’ BBA product line. Additionally, the company was recently recognized as a finalist in the categories of “Technology Foresight” and “Best Specialist Vendor” by the World Vendor Awards. Actelis’ DRB technology nomination in both categories showcases the combination of years of experience in developing innovative EFM over bonded-copper solutions. Actelis’ DRB technology offers carriers worldwide the ability to effectively mitigate cross-talk interference between hundreds of copper pairs to accelerate broadband reach and rates substantially, delivering bandwidth-hungry applications like cloud computing that rely on the quality and reliability of the underlying broadband connection.
