SSC and the OnDC Top 100 Companies will be honored at AlwaysOn’s OnDC event on October 19th-21st at the Four Seasons Hotel in Washington DC. This two-and-a-half-day executive event features CEO presentations and high-level debates on sectors most impacted by the federal government including greentech, on-demand computing and IT security, education, and the life sciences.
“It’s no secret that technology and innovation are vital to bringing our country out of economic recession and transforming important sectors like energy and healthcare,” said Tony Perkins, founder and CEO of AlwaysOn. “We congratulate the OnDC 100 for their success in introducing new tools, services, and systems to address the nation’s top priorities.”
The OnDC 100 winners were selected from among hundreds of other technology companies nominated by investors, bankers, journalists and industry insiders. The AlwaysOn editorial team conducted a rigorous three-month selection process to finalize the 2009 list.
SSC is providing a wireless software technology to enables wireless carriers and large enterprises to better use licensed or leased RF spectrum. The software enables wireless devices and network equipment to access additional spectrum for broadband and highly dynamic consumer and business wireless applications. The technology will enable billions in new revenue streams for wireless carriers and significantly improved wireless experience for consumers.

“The Chairman of the Federal Communications Commission recently noted that our country is facing a looming spectrum crisis because of an anticipated 30 fold increase in wireless traffic”, noted SSC CEO Thomas Stroup. “Just as we helped the US DoD to find spectrum our troops can use when in the field, we can help solve this problem by harnessing the vast majority of frequencies that are not being used in even the most heavily congested areas. We are delighted to be included in this very distinguished group of companies from around the country that are being honored by AlwaysOn.”
