Innovators in Action Summit
This year, we presented two new awards:
2018 Lifetime Achievement Award—Patent 2018 Lifetime Achievement Award—Innovator
The 2018 Lifetime Achievement Award—Patent was given to U.S. Patent Number 7,298,233: “Panel Antenna with Variable Phase Shifter” by inventor Dr. Martin Zimmerman. Zimmerman accepted the award for this patent granted in November 2007. His smaller, less
expensive, and more reliable concept allows most of the base station antennas designed at CommScope since 2005 to use some variant of this design. It represents tens of millions of phase shifters and has significantly added to CommScope’s bottom line.

The 2018 Lifetime Achievement Award—Innovator was presented to Amid Hashim. This award recognizes individuals who are distinguished by the depth and consistency of their technical contributions throughout their careers at CommScope.
With 40-plus years of experience working in the telecommunications industry, Hashim has spent nearly half of his professional career working for CommScope. With almost 70 U.S. patents to his name, Hashim’s ideas have enabled CommScope to be the first
to market with several solutions for enterprise networking applications. Most notably, he is one of the inventors on a multi-stage electrical compensation technology patent, which is so effective that CommScope licenses it to other companies.

From everyone at CommScope, congratulations to Zimmerman and Hashim on these fantastic accolades.
