"The award is a testament to our continuous commitment to innovation, which started with the launch of the world's first wireless module in 1997. Today, our portfolio of wireless embedded modules is the broadest in the industry by a long shot, and we continue to invest significant R&D effort in developing new, innovative 2G, 3G and 4G connectivity solutions for the machine-to-machine communications market."
