Shared Spectrum Company (SSC), the leading developer of Dynamic Spectrum Access solutions, today announced that it has been chosen by AlwaysOn as one of the Venture Summit Mid-Atlantic Top 100 winners. Inclusion in the Venture Summit Mid-Atlantic 100 signifies leadership amongst its peers and game-changing approaches and technologies that are likely to disrupt existing markets and entrenched players in the mid-Atlantic region. SSC was specially selected by the AlwaysOn editorial team and industry experts spanning the globe based on a set of five criteria: innovation, market potential, commercialization, stakeholder value, and media buzz.

SSC and the Venture Summit Mid-Atlantic 100 companies will be honored at AlwaysOn’s first annual Venture Summit Mid-Atlantic on November 3rd, 2010, at George Mason University in Fairfax, VA.

This two-and-a-half-day executive event features CEO presentations and high-level debates on the most promising technologies and new entrepreneurial opportunities in the mid-Atlantic region.

“The Venture Summit Mid-Atlantic 100 winners are transforming the mid-Atlantic region’s technology community through innovation and creativity,” said Tony Perkins, founder and editor at AlwaysOn. “The companies represent some of the highest-growth opportunities in the mid-Atlantic private company marketplace.”

The Venture Summit Mid-Atlantic 100 winners were selected from among thousands of mid-Atlantic technology companies nominated by investors, bankers, journalists, and industry insiders. The AlwaysOn editorial team conducted a rigorous three-month selection process to finalize the 2010 list.

SSC pioneered and continues to lead the development of Dynamic Spectrum Access (DSA) technology. DSA technology enables radio devices to dramatically improve spectrum utilization, communications reliability and network deployment time. SSC’s technology employs a policy-based sensing approach to DSA.
