“The judges on the panel are very impressed with the game-changing approach that Altair has been pursuing in the past few years, and the way they translated this strategy into actual products,” said Mike Roberts, Principal Analyst & Head of Americas at Informa Telecoms & Media. “The FourGee-3100/6202 single mode LTE chipset is clearly a leader in its category in terms of features, performance and cost.”
