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.”

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.
