NXP and, of course, VodafoneZiggo are partners and supporters of the 5G Hub Innovation Challenge. Representing their companies, Laura van Gestel and Doeco Terpstra are also contributing brilliantly to the 5G Hub Innovation Challenge’s jury. Learn more about them:
Laura van Gestel has a strong track record in MarCom and Media, and a passion for making brands and companies DO better, not only TELL better. In her role as Director of Brand Communications Media and CSR and board member of the Vodafone Foundation, she is leading the teams responsible for making the Vodafone and Ziggo Brands the most relevant for society and customers, as well as driving corporate social responsibility to enact positive change.
Doeco Terpstra is General Manager at NXP. The company contributes enormously to the global development of communications infrastructure solutions and mobile product solutions. As examples, we have the advanced GaN amplifiers that allow size, weight, power, and consumption reduction in 4G and 5G base stations; also, Silicon RF amplifiers that enable rapidly advancing WIFI standards. Promoting better virtual connection and innovations in both 4G/5G and WIFI have played a decisive role in keeping the world going during COVID and facilitating a lasting trend of less travel.
