Wavesat's WiMAX Mini-PCI Design Wins INNOVATION/Product Award at 17th ADRIQ Innovation Gala

    MONTREAL, Nov. 27 /CNW Telbec/ - Wavesat, leading supplier of WiMAX(TM)
chipset solutions, was awarded First Prize in the INNOVATION/Product category
at the 17th INNOVATION Gala of Industrial Research Association of Quebec
(ADRIQ), held last November 22 at Montreal's Windsor Station. Wavesat's WiMAX
Mini-PCI module was selected from the finalists of the annual contest due to
the company's success in translating the result of its research into an
innovative, highly competitive commercial product.
    "It was a great honour for me to receive this award in front of my peers
during this event which brought all Québec industrial innovation leaders
together. The design of our WiMAX Mini-PCI is unique in the world, a concrete
example of innovation that has obtained remarkable commercial success on the
national and international markets. This is not the first time Wavesat is
being recognized and this award helps us increase our leadership in our field
of expertise," said Jules Pierre Lamoureux, Wavesat's Vice-President, who
accepted the INNOVATION/Product Award before more than 400 decision-makers and
guests from the Quebec industrial innovation field.
    Since 1991, ADRIQ's INNOVATION Awards have been granted to organizations
and personalities that showed innovation in Québec. The company that receives
the INNOVATION/Product Award must have introduced in the market, during the
previous five years, an innovative product that is an obvious commercial
success and has a remarkable impact on the company, at the levels of
profitability, competitive advantage, sales growth and best strategic
positioning against competitors in its area of activity.
    From the applications received, the Selection Committee grants
organizations six corporate awards for excellence in their achievements,
leadership and mastery of industrial technologies.
