September 222004

LAS VEGAS (September 22, 2004) – Microwave Data Systems (MDS), a world leader in industrial, wireless, networking solutions with applications in the supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA), public safety, telecommunications, and online transactional markets, today announced it will receive Frost & Sullivan’s Excellence in Technology Award in the category, RF for Industrial Wireless Networking. The Award will be received at tonight’s 2004 Excellence in Mobile Communications Awards Banquet.

The company is being recognized for its performance and achievements in wireless and mobile strategy, technology, and services. The honor recognizes the innovation and superior technology behind MDS’ industrial wireless networking radios used for fixed and mobile communications.

“MDS radios enable mission-critical communications, increased safety, improved revenue, and greater efficiency in tough, industrial, climates for customers in the oil and gas, water and wastewater, electric utilities, telecom, and public safety sectors,” notes Frost & Sullivan research analyst Miriam Nagel. “Frost & Sullivan is, therefore, pleased to confer the 2004 Excellence in Technology of the Year Award upon MDS for its development of high-speed, point-to-multipoint industrial wireless networking radios.”

MDS is a leader in industrial wireless networking and in 2001 introduced the MDS iNET 900®, the first networking radio that provides wireless Ethernet in long-range, rugged, outdoor settings allowing customers to extend their networks to mobile and remote locations.

“This Award is in recognition of our ongoing commitment to innovation and for providing our customers with solutions to their most challenging problems in the most brutal environments,” said MDS Director of Marketing Moira Young. “MDS is thriving and we anticipate adding 25 new jobs by the end of this year. That is significant growth for a company the size of MDS and a true testament to how our technology is fulfilling a need and capturing market opportunity.”

Held in Las Vegas, Frost & Sullivan presents its Excellence in Technology of the Year Award to a company that has pioneered the development and introduction of a technology into the market and continues to make significant contributions to the industry. An annual event, the banquet recognizes the quality and merit of distinguished individuals and companies.
