re: Casa Downsizes the CMTS


It's always been interesting to see Casa--the only vendor to have attained the full, permanent D3 qualification, as best I know--pushing ahead various leading edges. But gaining market share, as you note in the interview, is another matter when competing with the big boys.

re: Casa Downsizes the CMTS


It's a tough market when you consider some of the companies that got into it and then got out -- BigBand and Terayon among them, though I'd argue that BBND was a bit hasty in its decision.  But it's good that there's a smaller company with some financial backing in the mix to keep Cisco, Arris and Moto in check, or at least fill enough of the gaps to make this business sustainable for a company like Casa. And the market may be ripe for other CMTS-related startups, or so we're hearing, so that's a good sign. JB

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.
