Fierce 15 Winners

FierceWireless, an online publication, announced its Fierce 15 emerging companies in the wireless industry for 2006.

As Fierce says, it’s an exciting time to be in the industry — subscribers continue to sign up for wireless services, operator have healthy financial statements and competition is robust.

But none of this excitement is coming out of the Northwest.

The winners include: Apertio of Bristol, U.K., Beceem of New Delhi, India, ClairMail of Novato, Calif., Digital Chocolate of San Mateo, Calif., go2 of Irvine, Calif., Helio of Westwood, Calif., IPWireless of San Bruno, Calif., mBlox of Sunnyvale, Calif., MobiTV of Emergyville, Calif., mPortal of Vienna, Vir., RedKnee of Toronto, Ruckus of Mountain View, Calif., SkyPilot of Santa Clara, Calif. and SlingMedia of San Mateo, Calif.

The companies mentioned fall into several categories spanning from WiMax equipment to portal services for wireless carriers to back-end billing infrastructure and social networking.

If at least one Seattle startup should have made the list, what do you think it should have been?
