Canadian IP Thought Leaders Series - Tom Flak, Soma Networks

On this week's podcast, I interviewed Tom Flak, SVP of Marketing and Product Strategy with Soma Networks.

Soma is a hybrid U.S./Canadian company, with HQ in San Francisco, but development centers here in Toronto and Ottawa. I've visited their Toronto facility a couple of times, and Soma has a good story that's largely untold.

They're a leading light in the WiMax space, and Tom provided a good perspective about the state of WiMax and some comparisons/contrasts with WiFi. All indicators points to 2007 being the year when WiMax becomes real, and Soma looks to figure in this in a nice way.

You can download the podcast here as well as learn more about Tom and the company.

FYI - no podcast next week - family vacation! We'll be going our Great White North road trip, and I'll be totally offline until early August.

Is Soma a company you would invest in?
