PORTLAND, Ore. -- The HomePlug® Powerline Alliance, the world’s leading industry group for powerline network solutions, today announced that STMicroelectronics has joined the alliance’s board of directors. STMicroelectronics, Europe’s leading semiconductor company, brings additional depth to the industry leading HomePlug ecosystem and further validates HomePlug technology as the defacto world standard for high-speed powerline networking.

“Powerline networking is rapidly moving into the mainstream as a backbone for the home network and the smart grid, and it is clear that HomePlug is a key reference technology for powerline networks,” said Carmelo Papa, Executive Vice President, General Manager Industrial and Multisegment Sector, STMicroelectronics. “We have been deploying millions of powerline chips for smart metering and home automation applications for many years, and HomePlug has the only complete ecosystem of interoperable technology which can ensure a forward migration path to Gigabit-class service. The HomePlug ecosystem and the IEEE 1901 standard will definitely complement STMicroelectronics power line communication solutions to fully cover all narrowband and broadband application evolutions.”

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.
