“Given LCC International’s huge impact on mobile communications in US and worldwide, KK should be recognized as one of the key people behind LCC’s success. KK founded and ran LCC’s Cellular Institute, a wireless technology university that produced thousands of wireless consultants in the 90’s that include many of today’s industry experts, CTO’s and CEO’s.”
