IRVINE, Calif. -- IOGEAR, the connectivity and peripheral specialist, has announced that it will expand its product line to include Wi-Fi hardware solutions. Gartner estimates that by 2006, more than 99 million end-users will have Wi-Fi equipped devices.

IOGEAR will enter the Wi-Fi market with the introduction of a number of innovative Wi-Fi access products, including USB 2.0 flex adapters, routers and CardBus cards. As a current manufacturer of Bluetooth connectivity devices, IOGEAR will continue its wireless focus by developing innovative, easy-to-use and affordable Wi-Fi technologies for the consumer market.

Worldwide wireless LAN hardware revenue is projected to grow to $3.2 billion in 2003, up about 100% from $1.6 billion in 2002, according to Infonetics Research's quarterly worldwide market share and forecast service, Wireless LAN Hardware.

"With such a strong heritage in connectivity technology, moving into the Wi-Fi arena is the next logical step for IOGEAR," said Miranda Su, vice president of sales and marketing at IOGEAR Inc. "IOGEAR's customers rely on us to provide reliable and cost-effective devices that simplify their lives. Eliminating the clutter of wires, and having the freedom to access email or the Internet from any location is a significant benefit for today's computer user."

IOGEAR will launch its first Wi-Fi router in November 2003.

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.
