Don't Miss Out on Being in Our T&M Survey

It's one thing for me to sit upon the Pedia throne and wax philosophical about the coolest test and measurement technologies and the savviest vendors in the space. But it's an entirely different story when telecom professionals -- the folks in the trenches who actually use the technologies every day -- start talking about which products and services are the best and which vendors live up to the hype and which ones... well, don't.

That story will be told in an upcoming survey and Market Leadership Study from Heavy Reading that will look at how telecom professionals view the test and measurement vendors and technologies on the market today. We've developed the study using vendors, products and services found in Testapedia.

Besides serving as an announcement that telecom professionals are about to lay bare their feelings on all things test and measurement, this story serves as an invitation to any T&M vendor that wants the chance to be included in the survey.

The survey itself will break T&M vendors into 11 categories, all of which are highlighted below. We've also included a breakdown of the vendors that are in each of those categories as they stand today. However, in the spirit of fairness -- and to ensure that we aren't missing anything -- we're giving any T&M vendor the opportunity to reach out and let us know if it should be included in the survey.

Another quick note: We're aware that Keysight has acquired Ixia, but because the acquisition is so new, each of the companies are listed separately because their names and product lines currently are thought of independently.

Currently, the 11 categories for the survey are:

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.
