Redpine Signals Earns Frost & Sullivan Award for Technology Innovation in Wireless Solutions and RTLS

SAN JOSE, Calif., Sept. 17, 2012 /PRNewswire via COMTEX/ -- Redpine Signals, Inc., a leading developer of ultra-low-power, high-performance, multi-standard wireless chipsets and systems, today announced it is a recipient of the Frost & Sullivan Global Wireless Solutions and RTLS Technology Innovation Award for 2012.

Redpine's innovation in wireless and RTLS technology is featured in its Quali-Fi(TM) 802.11ac technology and its WiSeMote(TM) RTLS products. The Quali-Fi technology incorporates the provisioned features of the draft IEEE 802.11ac standard in the 5 GHz band, with high data transfer rates at ultra-low-power profiles, providing the ideal connectivity mechanism of next-generation smartphones, tablets, HDTVs, cameras and other mobile devices. The use of the 5 GHz band opens up a greater number of operational channels, as well as wider bandwidths, to enable high-speed data transfer. Redpine's chipsets with this technology include the RS9117, a single spatial stream, dual-band combo device featuring 802.11n/ac and BT 4.0; and the RS9333, a unique simultaneous dual-band 5GHz MIMO 802.11ac + 2.4GHz BT4.0, 802.11n chipset that can be configured to be operational in the two different bands simultaneously. Redpine's WiSeMote RTLS products introduce, for the first time, standards-compliant operation in the 5 GHz band, ensuring greater reliability and longer battery life than devices operating in the increasingly crowded 2.4 GHz spectrum.

According to Nandini Bhattacharya, Senior Research Analyst with Frost & Sullivan, the Technology Innovation Award is a prestigious recognition of Redpine Signals' unmatched and comprehensive range of innovative solutions. Driven by its technological excellence and achievement in the field of ultra-low-power and multi-standard-compliant wireless solutions, Redpine is recognized with Frost & Sullivan's 2012 Technology Innovation Award in the Global Wireless Solutions and RTLS market.

"Redpine's focus has been on delivering best-in-class solutions for the Wi-Fi market, both mainstream and the Internet of Things, M2M space," said Venkat Matella, CEO of Redpine Signals. "We offer one of the strongest Wi-Fi product portfolios in the industry, and have been facilitating the adoption of up-to-date technology by our more than 1,500 customers in the medical, building automation, smart grid, transportation, industrial, and RTLS markets in the U.S., Europe, and Asia. We are excited at our impact on the industry being recognized by this Frost & Sullivan award." The Frost & Sullivan Global Wireless Solutions and RTLS Technology Innovation Award for 2012 was presented to Redpine Signals in a grand event held Tuesday, September 11, in San Jose, Calif., at The Fairmont San Jose.
