STOCKHOLM -- Ericsson (NASDAQ: ERIC) will demonstrate at NAB Show 2014, April 5th-10th April, Las Vegas (booth #SU721) how it is making TV Anywhere a reality with its unique blend of innovative solutions, services and deep industry knowledge and vision. The company will highlight how it is enabling the creation of compelling TV Anywhere experiences through the delivery of Pay-TV at web speed, and the ability to make video-centric networks highly efficient.
Ericsson’s 2013 ConsumerLab research shows the continuing increase in content being watched on the move, with 72 percent of consumers watching video on a mobile device at least once a week.

Ericsson’s heritage in both media and IP enables the company to address these changes and consumer desire for content any time, anywhere, on any device. As a result Ericsson is a key partner in helping content owners, broadcasters and TV service providers to excel in the services and experiences they deliver.

Light Reading is spending much of this year digging into the details of how automation technology will impact the comms market, but let's take a moment to also look at how automation is set to overturn the current world order by the middle of the century.
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.
