Cambium Networks Recognizes the Heroes of Wireless Connectivity Around the World


Connectivity Hero Awards Honor Those Who Are Changing Lives Through Wireless Connectivity

ROLLING MEADOWS, Ill., March 6, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Cambium Networks, a leading global provider of wireless networking solutions, today announced the first recipients of the company's Connectivity Hero Award.  Launched in 2017, the award recognizes individuals who have made a difference in the lives of people and improved communities through their efforts to extend wireless connectivity and connect the unconnected.

"Too often technology, and specifically connectivity, is taken for granted. Many people assume they will have access to whatever information they need whenever they want it," said Brandon Butler, Senior Research Analyst, IDC. "The reality is there are many diverging levels of technology adoption around the world. Thanks to the hard work of men and women across the technology industry, the far-reaching benefits of connectivity are becoming more widespread."

"Visionary leaders are taking strides to connect the unconnected and are making such a difference," said Atul Bhatnagar, President and CEO of Cambium Networks. "Wireless connectivity is changing lives around the world by expanding education, medical and safety services. These individuals are providing templates for what can be done. It is my pleasure to recognize Evert Bopp of Disaster Tech Lab as our 2017 Connectivity Hero of the Year. Evert and his team of volunteers have demonstrated that they will go anywhere and help anyone by providing connectivity in the wake of a disaster."
