BERLIN -- EANTC (European Advanced Networking Test Center) will include Software Defined Networking (SDN) in the annual multi-vendor Carrier Ethernet/MPLS/IPv6 interoperability test event for the first time. In the context of service provider networks, EANTC’s interoperability test will explore service provider use cases such as network slicing, SDN for LTE backhaul, as well as SDN for dynamic Carrier Ethernet services. The results of the test will be showcased at Upperside’s co-located MPLS & Ethernet World Congress, V6 World Congress, and SDN Summit in Paris, March 19-22, 2013. “We proudly organize the first public SDN interoperability test event in Europe, simultaneously being the first showcase worldwide integrating SDN with established MPLS, Carrier Ethernet, Mobile Backhaul, and IPv6 technologies,” said Carsten Rossenhoevel, Managing Director, EANTC. Participating vendors will construct an end-to-end test network during three weeks of hot-staging at EANTC’s lab in Berlin, Germany. “In Paris, we will demonstrate tangible use cases that service providers attending the congress can utilize as wide area network design blue prints,” Carsten explained further. “EANTC’s interoperability showcase is important to independently validate the state of the art of SDN and OpenFlow in the service provider space, specifically interfacing with non-OpenFlow infrastructure,” said Mike Haugh, Testing & Interoperability Working Group Chair, Open Networking Foundation. “The ONF supports this showcase as part of our activities to progress the evolution and success of software-defined networking by testing vendor solutions in a real-world service provider environment.” European Advanced Networking Test Center AG (EANTC)

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.
