LAS VEGAS -- Demonstrating leadership in delivering cutting-edge WiMAX silicon to market, NextWave Wireless Inc. (NASDAQ: WAVE), a global provider of mobile multimedia and wireless broadband technologies, today announced the NW2000 Wave 2-ready family of advanced, second-generation mobile WiMAX chipsets. NextWave’s innovative ‘No Compromise’ WiMAX silicon solutions raise the bar for mobile WiMAX chipsets ― offering a compact solution with outstanding performance, very low power consumption and enhanced integration for mobile multimedia.

Following on the heels of its first generation chipsets, which were sampled in 2007, NextWave is committed to accelerating wireless broadband market momentum through its sampling of the NW2000 chipset family. The NW2000 offers optimized 4G silicon to enable bandwidth intensive mobile multimedia applications ― including streaming video, video conferencing, Quality-of-Service (QoS) sensitive applications such as Voice-over-IP (VoIP) and support for NextWave’s recently announced MXtv™, mobile broadcast over WiMAX service.

“We’re making WiMAX a reality and lowering the barriers to adoption by bringing next-generation, ‘No Compromise’ WiMAX chipsets to market,” said Ed Redmond, executive vice president, Mobile Products Division and general manager, Semiconductor Business Unit, NextWave Wireless. “The high performance, low power and high integration of our WiMAX solution increases the attractiveness of WiMAX devices, providing consumers a more enriched mobile experience and helping mobile device manufacturers deliver a more capable, more sophisticated WiMAX-enabled product line. In addition, by enabling new multimedia services, it drives greater operator revenue potential through higher ARPU.”

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.
