EXTON, Pa. -- In-depth education on wireless services and DOCSIS 3.1—two cornerstone services that are defining the future of cable—will be on the agenda when the Society of Cable Telecommunications Engineers (SCTE) and CableLabs collaborate to present a Wireless and DOCSIS 3.1 Pre-Conference Symposium on Monday, Sept. 22, in conjunction with SCTE Cable-Tec Expo.

The full-day symposium will bring together subject-matter experts to explain the current status of the two technologies, their potential impact on operators’ service bundles and their ability to improve customer experiences. In addition, the symposium will discuss in detail the technical requirements and engineering techniques that are needed to ensure seamless, successful deployments.

Scheduled from 9:00 AM until 4:30 PM at Denver’s Colorado Convention Center, the symposium will feature four sessions each on wireless and DOCSIS 3.1. Morning sessions will address Carrier Grade Wi-Fi; Wi-Fi Analytics, Cloud and Radio Resource Management; Community Wi-Fi; and Wi-Fi Antenna Design and Surveying. The four afternoon DOCSIS 3.1 sessions will include: Current Status and Schedule; Bandwidth Opportunities; DOCSIS 3.1 Profiles—Customizing Bandwidth; and Operational Integration and Proactive Network Maintenance. Speakers for the symposium will be announced in the near future. More details, including pricing and registration information, are at http://expo.scte.org/workshops-and-events/pre-conference-symposium. The pre-conference symposium is sponsored by Amdocs.

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.
