DENVER, Colorado -- Liberty Global plc (“Liberty Global”) (NASDAQ: LBTYA, LBTYB, LBTYK, LILA and LILAK) is introducing its next-generation WiFi and telephony gateway, which will deliver an impeccable in-home WiFi internet experience for its customers. We are deploying the gateway, which includes both a data modem and a WiFi router, on a wide scale basis across our European operations to deliver a superior in-home connectivity that is fast, reliable and seamless. The device will enable broadband download speeds of up to 1 Gbps across our existing EuroDOCSIS 3.0 platform.

Doron Hacmon, Managing Director, Products and Online Media Group, Liberty Global, said, “Our next-generation WiFi and telephony gateway enables us to maximise the impact of our high-speed fiber networks across Europe by giving our customers a better, faster and even more reliable internet experience. Our customers rightly demand seamless WiFi connectivity both in and out of the home, and we will continue to focus relentlessly on providing them with a best-in-class experience, wherever they happen to be.”

The new WiFi and telephony gateway is now available to Telenet customers in Belgium and UPC customers in Romania and will be introduced by the rest of our operating companies in Europe in the coming months.

The launch of the next-generation WiFi and telephony gateway marks the first time that Liberty Global has designed a universal, locally-branded broadband product to be rolled out across its European and Latin American markets. Liberty Global has developed the device in close partnership with the manufacturers Arris and Compal. The device is powered by software developed by Celeno, which enables it to optimize the highest possible speeds over WiFi to multiple devices.

The box has been designed with ease-of-use in mind, featuring a simplified LED display and an install wizard that enables our customers to set up and customise their home WiFi service quickly and easily.

Additionally, Liberty Global continues to focus on providing its customers with the best WiFi experience out of the home. For this reason, Liberty Global has rolled out a network of six million public WiFi spots throughout its footprint in Europe and has the aim of growing this number to more than 10 million WiFi access points in 2016.

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.
