PALO ALTO, Calif.-- The Open Networking Foundation (ONF), a non-profit organization dedicated to accelerating the adoption of open Software-Defined Networking (SDN), today announced a new, low-cost category of membership specifically for SDN startup organizations, helping them to become more actively involved in building the SDN ecosystem. Membership fees for startup organizations are reduced from $30,000 a year to $1,000 a year but there is no difference in membership privileges. The first wave of startups to join ONF includes Criterion Networks, Corsa Technology, GuardiCore, Konodrac, Tallac Networks, and Xinguard Inc. Additional startups are currently in the membership application phase and will become ONF members in the coming months.

GuardiCore, an Israel-based startup, is developing a network security solution, detecting and mitigating cyber-attacks inside corporate data centers. Based in Barcelona, Konodrac focuses its efforts on acceleration of intelligent and secure data transfer service for social media and machine-to-machine applications. Tallac Networks, from Rocklin, Calif., offers SDN for the Campus called Software-Defined Mobility, a new approach at enabling Wi-Fi operators to connect mobile users to the network services they demand. Rounding out the global interest, Xinguard Inc., from Taipei, Taiwan, specializes in the development of SDN solutions to construct scalable and proactive network infrastructures able to cope with changing networks.

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.
