Applied Communication Sciences Honors Two Employees with Highest Technical Award

BASKING RIDGE, N.J., Dec. 18, 2012 /PRNewswire via COMTEX/ -- Applied Communication Sciences announced today that it has elevated two employees to the title of ACS Fellow in recognition of their industry-leading innovations, critical business contributions, and extensive collaborations with clients and business partners.

"Our ACS Fellows represent the very best of this culture of innovation and partnering." The two employees who have earned the Fellow distinction this year are: Dr. Thomas Chapuran, Network Systems Research: Tom has led or co-led a broad spectrum of advanced communications research initiatives that have produced ground-breaking results. Those results have been particularly focused in the areas of broadband access networking, Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP), and quantum communications. In the quantum field, Tom was a vital contributor to a string of important "firsts" including the first demonstration of component-level switching of single photons and the first demonstration of switching single photons through commercial network elements. The depth of his technical leadership was underscored earlier this year through receiving an Edison Award for a patent he co-authored on quantum relays. This breakthrough research makes quantum communications practical and scalable in fiber optic networks while reducing infrastructure costs.

Sunil Samtani, Mobile Networking: For more than a decade Sunil has been at the forefront of tactical mobile networking - - an increasingly vital technology for the U.S. military as it evolves to a network-centric mode of operation. His research and development in this area has been pioneering, including developing the first integrated ad hoc mobile networking protocol suite for the U.S. Army, demonstrating the capability to provide critical voice, video and data services to warfighters in challenging tactical communications environments. Having authored more than 80 research papers, Sunil has consistently demonstrated an exceptional combination of technical acumen, as well as the practical skills needed to transition innovative technology from the laboratory to mission-critical communications systems. His technical vision and achievements in tactical mobile networking ensure that the U.S. military will maintain information superiority over its adversaries in tactical operations.

"Along with the rest of our ACS family, I am honored to recognize Tom and Sunil's accomplishments," said CEO Greene. "It is their kind of technical and industry leadership that underscore how the culture of innovation in ACS continues to be in excellent hands."

Building A Business Case For Unified Communications

The hype surrounding any emerging technology often shrouds the private sector with mixed feelings, as decision-makers try to decipher whether new offerings will enhance operations, hinder productivity or introduce some bizarre mixture of the two.

Instant Cashflow Improvement and Rapid ROI with Unified Communications

The up-and-down economy of the past several years has highlighted the need to operate more effi ciently and cut costs wherever possible. In most situations, these two notions would seem contradictory, but a number of emerging technologies - cloud computing, virtualization and the bring-your-own-device movement among them - are helping companies accomplish these goals.

The Top Four Pitfalls of Unified Communications

Today's enterprise needs to be agile if decision-makers wish to remain competitive and relevant in the eyes of consumers. As more companies and customers around the world begin leveraging innovative devices like smartphones, tablets and next-generation laptops, the need to deploy unified communications grows alongside it. Neglecting to implement the technology may result in dire consequences that could spell the end of an organization.
