LAS VEGAS -- Beceem Communications (www.beceem.com), a leading provider of terminal chipsets for Mobile WiMAX, today announced the world’s first full-featured, 65 nanometer, single-chip WiMAX Wave 2 solution. The newest member in Beceem’s industry-leading product portfolio, the BCSM250 is the first to combine a Wave 2 baseband, dual-band radio, memory and power management in a single chip. Housed in an 11mm by 11mm package, this highly integrated solution reduces the power consumption by at least 30% from existing solutions while increasing peak data rates to 40 Mbps, thereby setting a number of new benchmarks for the industry. This combination of small form factor and low power consumption, coupled with Beceem’s proven mobile performance and wide-scale network interoperability finally allows WiMAX to be embedded in virtually any consumer device, thus accelerating its adoption by major carrier and device manufacturers.

“With the introduction of the BCSM250, Beceem continues to set the standard for WiMAX integration, robust performance, and power consumption,” said Shahin Hedayat, CEO and co-founder of Beceem Communications. “With this chip, supporting 40Mbps throughput and hand-off latency of less than 50 ms, the realization of truly Mobile Broadband connectivity is here for all devices ranging from small PC accessories, PC notebooks, mobile internet devices to handsets.”

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.
