6:50 AM -- Networks are large and complicated beasts, so it's handy for telco operations teams to have multiple views of what's happening to the infrastructure and how changes in the network might be impacting service quality.

India's leading operator, Bharti Airtel Ltd., decided it would deliver those multiple views all at once by building a screen with a larger surface area than a tennis court at its Universal Network Operations Center in Manesar, Gurgaon (just outside New Delhi).

The operator procured Service Provider Information Technology (SPIT) systems and know-how from customer experience partner Nokia Siemens Networks and believes it has an unrivalled view of its networks and the services being delivered to its 186 million mobile and 3.3 million fixed line users in India.

It looks amazing and all sounds very impressive, but...


The big question is -- will Airtel's customers benefit from this move? Will their customer experience improve at all?

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.
