NEWPORT BEACH, Calif. -- Mindspeed Technologies, Inc. (NASDAQ: MSPD), a leading supplier of semiconductor solutions for network infrastructure applications, today announced the expansion of its industry-leading crosspoint portfolio with 160x160, 48x48, 36x36 and 24x24 devices that further extend the world's broadest line of crosspoint switches. Today’s ultra-time-sensitive applications demand very low latency that wide area networks and data centers need to address. An example is financial trading, where low latency is required for running an efficient, competitive market, and is viewed as a competitive advantage that delivers increased profits for firms which can execute transactions faster than their competitors. In such applications, latency is a frequently used metric that determines the necessary network and system architecture driving the use of crosspoints where port-based switching is required. Mindspeed®’s crosspoints utilize high-performance analog process technology, enabling at-speed port switching, eliminating the need for SerDes devices and memory required for store-and-forward packet switching scheme, thus reducing latency, power consumption and cost. In addition, they feature Mindspeed's advanced signal-integrity management technology that delivers signal transmission speeds up to 12.5 Gbps. This signal conditioning technology enables storage, server and networking systems to support the industry's migration to higher data rates over backplanes and cabling media.

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.
