SAN JOSE, Calif. -- Networking industry leader Jonathan Davidson is re-joining Cisco to lead its Service Provider Networking organization as senior vice president and general manager, service provider networking, reporting to Yvette Kanouff, the senior vice president and general manager of Cisco’s service provider business unit.

This is another important milestone in rebuilding the engineering team under the leadership of David Goeckeler, senior vice president and general manager of networking and security business, which includes the service provider business unit. Davidson joins Roland Acra, who rejoined Cisco last fall as senior vice president and general manager of Cisco’s data center business unit, to join Goeckeler’s organization.

Having served as executive vice president and general manager of Juniper Development and Innovation, and earlier SVP/GM for Juniper’s Security, Switching and Solutions, Jonathan drove strategy, development and business growth for Juniper’s entire portfolio – including networking solutions, routing, switching, data center, cloud, and security.

Earlier, Davidson held a variety of leadership positions at Cisco, developing service provider solutions and leading the enterprise routing product management and SP services team.

“We couldn’t be more excited that Jonathan joins our journey as we usher in the next generation of networking and network automation innovation. He brings extensive experience in strategy and network engineering leadership as well as strong customer relationships that will serve us well,” said Yvette Kanouff, Cisco’s SVP/GM Service Provider Business Unit.

“I’m confident that Jonathan, along with our networking leadership team, will break new ground in networking automation as we transform service providers worldwide. We are thrilled to welcome him back to Cisco,” she added.

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.
