BELFAST -- Vello Systems, a leading provider of open, converged networking and software solutions, and charter member of the Open Networking Foundation, opened the doors of its first dedicated offices of its Northern Ireland operation as part of its strategy to significantly expand its software and applications development capabilities in the region.

The site opening sees the next step in an ongoing process to position Vello more prominently in the European market and will allow the business to grow to over 70 new jobs in Belfast over a three-year period.

Vello president and chief executive Karl May commented that; “(he) was swayed after meeting representatives of other US technology companies which had set up here, such as the world's third largest software company, SAP.

“The European market represents a huge opportunity for Vello as a company and the opening of our Belfast operation shows our dedication to growing our presence in Europe and championing the uptake of applications and new network software architectures as genuinely ‘new’, business enablers.”

Growing confidence...
The recent Pacnet deal in Asia must have given Vello some confidence about expanding elsewhere. Nice to see one of the smaller networking and SDN companies expanding on its own.

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.
