Fortemedia Board Member Honored by Ohio State University and the Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers

Recipient of the Lifetime Achievement and Hall of Fame Awards

Santa Clara, CA. (October 27, 2014) - Fortemedia Inc. (, the world leader in voice processing technologies, is proud to announce Board of Directors member Dr. William Lee is the recipient of The Ohio State University Lifetime Achievement Award and the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) Vehicular Technology Society (VTS) Hall of Fame award.

“These awards are such an honor,” said Lee. “It’s been exciting to see how the field has changed over the past 40 years and it’s been a privilege to be part of it.”

The Lifetime Achievement Award from Ohio State is for Dr. Lee's leadership in the cellular telecommunications field. In addition to a Master's degree and Ph.D. from the university, he has more than 40 years of experience in the field and 35 patents (plus 5 pending) to his name. His numerous accomplishments, which range from creating the 'Lee model' for wireless signal propagation to leading teams responsible for PacTel's PCS experimental trial, Qualcomm's development of their CDMA technologies and the completion of the first CDMA commercial system, certainly speak for themselves.

Dr. Lee's IEEE VTS Hall of Fame award is his most recent in a string of prestigious accolades, which include the IEEE VTS Avant Garde Award, the CT.I.A. Award, the CDMA Industry Achievement Award, a Bell Lab Service Award and the IEEE Third Millennium Medal Award. To date only three people have received this Hall of Fame award, Dr. Irvin Jacobs of Qualcomm, Dr. Marty Cooper of Motorola and Dr. Lee.

“We’re extremely proud of Dr. Lee’s latest awards,” said Dr. Paul Huang, CEO of Fortemedia. “We are very grateful he chooses to serve as one of our Board members so we can benefit from his insight and experience.”
