Firetide announced today it has been selected as a Finalist for Red Herring’s Top 100 North America award, a prestigious list honoring the year’s most promising private technology ventures from the North American business region.

The Red Herring editorial team selected the most innovative companies from a pool of hundreds from across North America. Finalists for the 2011 edition of the Red Herring 100 North America award are selected based upon their technological innovation, management strength, market size, investor record, customer acquisition, and financial health.

Firetide is the leader in wireless infrastructure mesh technology for demanding public safety “crime camera” applications, and has been ranked as #1 private company in wireless infrastructure for video surveillance in the Americas by IMS Research (See: Firetide Lands at #1 Spot in Video Mesh in the Americas). To expand on its leadership position in infrastructure mesh, Firetide has recently introduced a family of point-to-point bridges and video-optimized WLAN solution, including 802.11n access points and WLAN controller.

Says Bo Larsson, our CEO:

“It’s an honor to be recognized as a top technology company, and as innovators in the wireless industry. It’s not surprising, since we continue to invest over 30% of revenues in R&D. No other company in the space offers an end-to-end product portfolio, capable of supporting metro-wide all-wireless infrastructures, from backhaul to Wi-Fi access. Our team has worked very hard this year, and the results speak for themselves.”

While not big news, I believe this is the first time we got on the finalist list! We’ll see if we are one of the winners. Winners will be announced in June 2011.

Our previous industry award was ASIS Accolades in 2010. Read more about that award here: ASIS 2010 Impressions: ASIS Accolades; Social Media at #ASIS10.
