LAS VEGAS -- Broadcom Corporation (Nasdaq: BRCM), a global innovation leader in semiconductor solutions for wired and wireless communications, today announced that its fourth generation DOCSIS 3.0 system-on-a-chip (SoC) solutions have achieved 1Gbps downstream speeds by bonding up to 24x8 DOCSIS channels. Broadcom’s new technology achieves triple the downstream bandwidth and double the upstream bandwidth from previous generations. When paired with Broadcom’s 5G WiFi devices (based on the IEEE 802.11ac standard), operators achieve gigabit speeds into and around the home, enabling the fastest whole-home solution on the market. Learn how Broadcom innovation is enabling the Connected Life at home, at work, and on-the-go at Broadcom@CES. Broadcom’s new BCM3384 DOCSIS/Euro-DOCSIS 3.0 cable gateway SoC combines Broadcom’s Full-Band Capture (FBC) digital tuning technology with remote diagnostics, dual-band concurrent Wi-Fi, a custom, dedicated applications processor, and integrated DECT 6.0 CAT-iq 2.0, driving the proliferation of applications and advanced data, voice, and video services throughout the home. Enabling a simple migration path to 16x4, Broadcom’s new BCM33843 is pin compatible with, and leverages the same software and system design as Broadcom’s widely deployed BCM3383 DOCSIS 3.0 cable gateway SoC. This enables operators to leverage existing designs to quickly deploy additional channels and more bandwidth. Broadcom Corp.

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.
