Nothing really says Thanksgiving like a turkey with a big old blast of WiFi radiating from its cloaca, does it?

Wireless access point provider Xirrus Inc. appears to think so, tweeting out this fowl image to celebrate the Pilgrims' first harvest festival Tuesday.

Wait -- what? Of course it's a fun graphic of a feathered hotspot... what else could it represent?

The best thing is that the RF frontend silicon really helps to seal in the tenderness as you cook the bird.

Ah yes, there'll be lots of folks eating Turkey this year with wireless signals thankfully abundant everywhere we go. Now if we can only turn off the phones and the tablets during the big dinner.

One way to bring the tweens to the table? Make your turkey a hotspot.

Turkey's end-to-end WiFi solution
Poultry editor? You cannot be Xirrus. This blog is pure gobble-di-gook. It's stuffing and nonsense. (Other puns are available.)

Is Facebook a monopoly? Sure it is. Just a 21st-century monopoly, where data is king.
5G as a sprint, not a long-distance proposition.
The anticipated 5G wave of new small cells is likely to kick off a new round of cellular 'Nimbyism' too.
Verizon is undertaking more fixed wireless 5G tests in Atlanta and Sacramento.
I now expect them to be initially available in the first quarter of 2019.

A CSP's digital transformation involves so much more than technology. Crucial – and often most challenging – is the cultural transformation that goes along with it. As Sigma's Chief Technology Officer, Catherine Michel has extensive experience with technology as she leads the company's entire product portfolio and strategy. But she's also no stranger to merging technology and culture, having taken a company — Tribold — from inception to acquisition (by Sigma in 2013), and she continues to advise service providers on how to drive their own transformations. This impressive female leader and vocal advocate for other women in the industry will join Women in Comms for a live radio show to discuss all things digital transformation, including the cultural transformation that goes along with it.
