TE SubCom, a TE Connectivity Ltd. company and an industry pioneer in undersea communications technology, and inventor Neal Bergano were recognized by the Research and Development Council of New Jersey as a 2013 Edison Patent Award winner in the category of communications technology at the organization’s 34th Patent Award Ceremony on November 7.
Neal Bergano, inventor and Managing Director, System Research and Network Development at TE SubCom, accepted the award for his “Synchronous Amplitude Modulation for Improved Performance of Optical Transmissions Systems” (U.S. Patent 7,292,793 B2), an invention used in undersea cable systems that improves performance of long-haul optical telecommunications systems by re-modulating a high-speed optical data channel with a synchronous amplitude, phase and/or polarization modulation.
“For 34 years, the Council has recognized the outstanding scientific advances of New Jersey’s research community and it is an honor for TE SubCom to be recognized for the second year in a row for our contributions to undersea communications technology,” said Bergano.
TE SubCom was one of 12 New Jersey companies to be recognized at the Patent Award Ceremony held at the Liberty Science Center in Jersey City. Home to the nation’s largest IMAX Theater, a short film paid tribute to TE SubCom for its unique contributions to the state’s accomplishments in research and development.
