LAS VEGAS -- Entropic (ENTR), a world leader in semiconductor solutions for the connected home, announced today its MoCA(R) (Multimedia over Coax Alliance) 2.0 silicon and software solution has been selected by ARRIS Group, Inc. (ARRS) for use in the ARRIS MG2402 Video Gateway that uses XG5 and Reference Design Kit (RDK) specifications developed by Comcast. The cable industry in North America is transitioning from a traditional set-top box/digital video recorder set-up (STB/DVR) to a Gateway/IP-client network architecture. Recognizing this macro dynamic early, Entropic designed its MoCA 2.0 solution offering the highest MAC throughput and most reliable whole-home connectivity backbone from the gateway to all client devices in the home. With backward interoperability to MoCA 1.0 and 1.1 devices, the MoCA 2.0 solution enables the advanced gateway to stream video and other digital entertainment from the gateway to each IP-client device. "This is the first official product announcement of MoCA 2.0 designed into a headless gateway," said Al Servati, vice president of Marketing, Connectivity Group, Entropic. "Our MoCA 2.0 solution was selected for its maturity, stability and ability to enable ARRIS to deliver IP services from the home gateway to lower cost IP-Client set-top boxes -- all over wired (MoCA) and wireless home networks." Entropic Communications Inc.

Understanding the full experience of women in technology requires starting at the collegiate level (or sooner) and studying the technologies women are involved with, company cultures they're part of and personal experiences of individuals.

During this WiC radio show, we will talk with Nicole Engelbert, the director of Research & Analysis for Ovum Technology and a 23-year telecom industry veteran, about her experiences and perspectives on women in tech. Engelbert covers infrastructure, applications and industries for Ovum, but she is also involved in the research firm's higher education team and has helped colleges and universities globally leverage technology as a strategy for improving recruitment, retention and graduation performance.

She will share her unique insight into the collegiate level, where women pursuing engineering and STEM-related degrees is dwindling. Engelbert will also reveal new, original Ovum research on the topics of artificial intelligence, the Internet of Things, security and augmented reality, as well as discuss what each of those technologies might mean for women in our field. As always, we'll also leave plenty of time to answer all your questions live on the air and chat board.
