BEIJING -- Entropic (Nasdaq:ENTR), a world leader in semiconductor solutions for the connected home, today announced the EN3681 Network Controller (NC) and the EN3690 Customer Premise Equipment (CPE) – the Company's newest generation of c.LINK® 1.1+ Ethernet-over-Coax (EoC) Broadband Access solutions. Entropic's latest c.LINK 1.1+ offering is the first multiple-channel EoC solution that can deliver up to 800 Mbps of aggregated throughput, ensuring the bandwidth and flexibility needed to meet China's Next Generation Broadcasting (NGB) requirements. Entropic is demonstrating its new EoC solution at the China Content Broadcasting Network(CCBN) exhibition – Hall 3, Booth #3403 – which takes place this week in Beijing. To satisfy consumer demand for high definition (HD) video content across a variety of connected devices, and to meet requirements set forth by the NGB initiative, China MSOs are looking for high throughput broadband access solutions to reliably drive more entertainment services and applications to their subscribers. Entropic's EN3681 NC and EN3690 CPE solution delivers the industry's highest performance, highest density EoC solution in the smallest form factor. The technology employs the first-ever multiple-channel solution which raises the performance bar – bringing 800 Mbps of aggregated throughput to MSOs' networks, and operates across a wide frequency range, making it easy to co-exist with Low RF and other High RF solutions. This flexibility allows MSOs to easily augment their capacity needs if more bandwidth is desired. This new generation of EoC solution is backward compatible with Entropic's c.LINK 1.1 install base, protecting MSOs investments and provides an upgrade path over their existing services.

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.
