TORONTO -- Rogers Cable Communications Inc. today announced the launch of the fastest wireless home networking device, the N gateway. Rogers is the first cable Internet Provider in North America to offer its customers a DOCSIS 3.0 N gateway wireless home networking that has been specifically designed for optimal usage on its high-speed network.

This enhanced gateway combines the modem and wireless router into one device, minimizing the clutter and making it easier for customers to manage their wireless home network. With the N gateway consumers are able to extend their wireless connection further, and will have less signal quality issues.

"Innovation is the driving force behind everything we do at Rogers," said Chris Draper, Vice President of Product Management, Rogers Cable. "We continuously invest in our network to deliver superior products and services that deliver a consistently better online experience for our customers. Through the enhanced capabilities of our DOCSIS 3.0 network, combined with wireless N technology, we are delivering the most powerful gateway available to our customers."

The innovation doesn't end there though. Rogers customers will not only realize the benefits the fastest wireless home networking device brings, but in mid August they will also be able to access the fastest Internet speed available in the market with the launch of a 50Mbps service. Rogers Hi-Speed Internet's fastest level of service will initially be available in the Greater Toronto Area and will be rolled out further in the coming months.

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.
