The RuralConnect Generation II has been named the Best Wireless Device of 2011 by Electronic Design Magazine!

Carlson is pleased to announce that Electronic Design magazine has selected our new RuralConnect Generation II for Best Electronic Design of 2011.

Carlson’s white space radio, developed in partnership with the software firm Neul, has been named the year’s Best Idea for Design in the category of Wireless Communications.

TV white space promises to be the ultimate solution to rural broadband because it is the first wireless broadband technology that can be effectively and affordably deployed in hilly, forested terrain, thanks to the great propagation of UHF signal.

And Carlson’s RuralConnect, set to the hit the open market after the first of the year, is leading the way for this new technology.

Wireless Internet service providers (WISPs) from all over the United States are queuing up to claim the first, limited product run and deploy this amazing technology in neighborhoods within their service area.

“We are honored to have our work recognized by Electronic Design magazine, and to have this pioneering product listed among other innovative designs,” said Jim Carlson, CEO of Carlson.
