BURLINGAME, Calif. -- BitGravity, Inc. today officially launched a new content delivery network designed to enable a new wave of Internet media that is expected to be higher quality and more interactive. BitGravity, which has been operating in stealth mode for over a year, has already validated its technology with over 50 brand name customers. The company has developed a network engineered for a generation of web-based content just now being envisioned by major media companies and innovative media start-ups. BitGravity’s network is facilitating the creative development of multimedia applications previously limited by the performance constraints of the Internet.

“Media companies are experiencing a technology barrier; they know in theory they can build applications online in unforeseen ways, but in practice, the current CDN infrastructure is too limiting to realize their vision,” said Perry Wu, CEO and co-founder of BitGravity and a former venture capitalist and veteran of several technology start-ups. “That barrier is now coming down with the launch of BitGravity, and we anticipate content like we’ve never seen before to come to market on our network.”

Major media companies and some technology start-ups have started to develop more innovative video applications for the Internet. While consumers have come to accept the performance and the quality of video for user-generated content and commercially-developed video, they will be less tolerant as the quality matures and as the complexity increases with new applications, requirements that are not ideal running on top of the current CDNs.

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.
