Sangeetha Siddegowda, an ECE Master's student and WINLAB member, was awarded as a runner-up by Telcordia for participating in the contest to develop an application for Android and iPhones that will use Telcordia Mobile ID to assist users to identify their next service provider.

Telcordia Mobile ID is an advanced subscriber information management solution that provides communication service providers and content providers secure and accurate information and intelligence about its mobile subscriber base. In turn, Mobile ID enables service providers to deliver more relevant, personalized and targeted, content and services to their cell phone customers.

Android and iPhone application developers can use Telcordia Mobile ID to develop and deliver behavior-based services such as mobile advertising, location-based applications and promotions, and service upgrades.
