ASSIA CEO Dr. John Cioffi to Participate in Marconi Society Webinar on Gigabit Broadband Using DSL and Wi-Fi

Presentation Reveals the Combined Use of Vectored VDSL and Shared Wi-Fi for Practical, Low-Cost Delivery of Gigabit Broadband Speeds to Homes

REDWOOD CITY, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 05/06/14 -- ASSIA, Inc., a leading solutions company for broadband service providers, today announced that ASSIA CEO and Chairman Dr. John Cioffi and MIT Senior Research Scientist Dr. David Clark will present a Marconi Society webinar, "A Gigabit/s to a Billion and High Speeds for Five Billion," on May 8, 2014. Dr. Cioffi and Dr. Clark will discuss using vectored VDSL combined with shared home Wi-Fi to economically and easily enable consumers to benefit from gigabit broadband connections.

Gigabit broadband connections at remarkably reduced cost are now practical through the marriage of DSL and Wi-Fi. In the near future, Germany is planning the roll out for millions of residents of highly reliable 100 megabit speeds using vectored DSL, a technology invented by ASSIA engineers. Millions more are planned in Switzerland, Italy, Belgium and Holland. Telecommunication carriers estimate that DSL is 75 percent cheaper than running fiber all the way to every home and can be delivered in half the time.

Wi-Fi also has passed a gigabit/s connection speed, and some chip providers have recently announced ten gigabit/s 8x8 versions of 802.11ad Wi-Fi connections using MIMO techniques. This webinar brings industry experts together to discuss the powerful combination of DSL and Wi-Fi for gigabit/s speeds on demand.

Who: Dr. John Cioffi, CEO and Chairman, ASSIA, Inc.; Dr. David Clark, Senior Research Scientist, MIT Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory

What: Webinar: "A Gigabit/s to a Billion and High Speeds for Five Billion"

When: Thursday, May 8, 10:00 a.m. U.S. Pacific Time
