BARCELONA -- Synchronica plc (AIM: SYNC, TSX-V: SYN), the international provider of next-generation mobile messaging solutions, today announces integration of new advanced transcoding and streaming functionality in Mobile Gateway 6, dramatically reducing network bandwidth consumption and allowing users to view complex email attachments even from entry-level mobile devices.

The patented transcoding technology converts and optimizes office and multimedia documents on the fly and streams the content to the mobile browser, reducing the consumption of network bandwidth by as much as 90 percent. Content is converted by intelligent adaptation to structured data formats, such as XML, FPX, or 3GPP. As the content is streamed and displayed in the mobile phone's web browser, the new technology removes the need for heavy third-party document viewers.

Carsten Brinkschulte, CEO of Synchronica, comments: "For operators, the cost of wholesale bandwidth is fast becoming a controversial issue; several operators are already ending their all-you-can-eat data plans and implementing fair use policies."

"A significant contributor to bandwidth squandering is email traffic, often associated with heavy attachments. With Mobile Gateway's new transcoding, we can reduce the total bandwidth used by up to 90 percent and at the same time provide full document viewing capabilities even on entry-level phones without the need for complex attachment viewer applications", Brinkschulte adds.

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.
