"Wireless has a rich, fascinating history, and the Wireless Hall of Fame offers the premier platform to recognize individuals who have made game-changing contributions to this industry," said WHF Executive Director Liz Maxfield.
Candidates are nominated by their peers and selected according to a consistent set of criteria by a committee composed primarily of Hall of Fame members. Inductees will be honored at the Wireless Hall of Fame Dinner on October 8 in San Diego, the evening before the CTIA Enterprise and Applications 2012 tradeshow.
Thirty-two individuals have been inducted into the Wireless Hall of Fame since its inception in 2000. Current members represent ground-breaking achievements in all areas of technology, business and public service. Eligibility for the Wireless Hall of Fame is based on an individual’s contributions to the advancement of wireless services, products, and programs.
