This past year has seen networks in the US change drastically through M&A, the growth of WiFi, LTE expansion, the launch of alternative access networks and more. Network maps of last year quickly grew out of date.

Luckily, Mosaik Solutions LLC , which tracks and organizes geospatial network intelligence, has recently updated its maps of the US wireless networks, including cable WiFi deployments, LTE and 600MHz auction boundaries. (See Mosaik Acquires TowerSource, Enters T&M Market.)

The mappers note that 99% of the US population is now covered by at least one LTE network, and 84.9% has at least two 4G choices. Perhaps most notably, it says that 23.5% of the population has the choice of at least five network operators, but that is down 59% over last year as consolidation has decreased the number of operators serving many rural areas. (See Smaller US Operators to Become Spectrum Snacks?)

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.
