These heroes are not alone; both are leaders working among peers who share a 
common purpose. Explained Cambium Networks President and CEO Atul Bhatnagar, 
"Both winners find that as they give their time and talents to help people in 
need, they are at the same time receiving a much deeper sense of community and 
purpose. We congratulate Roberto and Chris and salute each member of the 
organizations that they lead in helping people in need. Cambium Networks is 
glad to donate $1,000 to the charities of their choice."

"Deploying affordable, reliable wireless connectivity in remote regions around 
the world that currently lack it will significantly help improve the quality of 
life in those areas," said Daryl Schoolar, Practice Leader, Service Provider 
Technology at Ovum Research. "The Internet has revolutionized the way we learn, 
work, and communicate.  Those without Internet access are at risk of being left 
behind both educationally and economically. The Internet gap between those with 
access and those without will only grow unless we find ways to bring robust 
broadband connectivity to everyone, everywhere. Companies like Cambium Networks 
are working to close this gap by working with partners to donate equipment that 
can be used to deliver reliable connectivity to disenfranchised communities 
around the world."

     - Roberto Constante, CEO, Consulnetworks ( – In his
       daily job, Roberto works as a technology distributor partnering with
       government agencies to provide connectivity to public schools in rural
       areas in  Latin America. From his home in Ecuador, Roberto also donates
       his personal time working with the Rotaract organization to do social
       work to improve the lives of children. "I think we all come to the world
       with some mission," says Roberto. "I would like to think that mine is to
       help people with what I have and try to give back to the world a part of
       something that has been given to me. Doing social work to help children
       allows me to do that." Roberto's designated charity is Fundación Rotaria

     - Chris Hillis, Co-Founder, Information Technology Disaster Resource Center
       ( (ITDRC) - ITDRC connects thousands of disaster
       survivors and responders in dozens of communities in the United States

       approximately 1,500 service-oriented volunteer technology
       professionals," says Chris. "While each member has a slightly different
       motivation, the team is bonded through service to others. We believe in
       using our skills for good - we're just neighbors helping neighbors."
