"Wireless will be key in connecting a variety of devices in the digital home," said Tricia Parks, president of Parks Associates. "With its expertise developing solutions in this arena, Bermai is a welcome addition and will create a higher level of discourse at CONNECTIONS™."

Bermai provides high -performance, ultra -integrated wireless chipsets with standards -based Wi -Fi connectivity and guaranteed QoS (Quality of Service) for high -bandwidth, jitter -intolerant applications such as streaming video. Its cost -effective solution is based on the IEEE 802.11e draft standard and will interoperate with, not interfere with, existing 802.11/Wi -Fi networks.
