This year, 119 technologies developed by established companies, startups, or research teams are highlighted for their cutting-edge advancements and potential to impact consumers, businesses, and society overall.

The company holds a 44% share of the CBRS market, has over 450 customers, and manages over 150,000 CBRS access points. Federated Wireless also works with major original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) to drive new research and development in the global Wi-Fi 6 market.

Federated Wireless is a leading provider of neutral host networks and was named a Top Innovator in neutral host development by ABI Research earlier this year.

“This honor rewards years of hard work and a deep commitment to making the benefits of shared spectrum a reality for our customers and partners,” said Federated Wireless CEO Iyad Tarazi. “From working with policymakers to establish commercial access to the CBRS and 6 GHz bands to building commercial systems to enable that access, Federated Wireless is engaged at every level to deliver transformative enterprise-grade connectivity.”
