STOCKHOLM -- At Mobile World Congress, Ericsson (NASDAQ:ERIC) will launch a new unified content delivery network (CDN) solution that leverages its leadership position in video delivery, optimization and networks, to address the global consumer shift to broadband mobility. The new Ericsson Media Delivery Network solution is uniquely designed to unite the delivery of managed and unmanaged content over fixed and mobile networks by leveraging Ericsson's advanced packet core and radio capabilities with converged cache, combined with new management and service exposure layers for intelligent control and business model enablement. This solution enables operators to enter the media value chain with profitable video delivery and to truly leverage their established consumer relationships. At the same time it offers content providers and enterprises cost-effective accessibility and guaranteed quality of experience across all networks, enabling the delivery of video, web content, and app downloads while accelerating commerce. Per Borgklint, Senior Vice President and Head of Business Unit Support Solutions, Ericsson said, "Yesterday our mobile devices were telephones, today they are everything; our TVs, our banks, our conference rooms. The recent Ericsson Mobility Report shows that mobile data traffic will grow 12 times by 2018, and this is only the start of the tremendous transformation we will witness. The Ericsson Media Delivery Network solution breaks the boundaries of traditional CDN solutions, offering operators a single, intelligent, and agile management platform for superior efficiency, optimization, velocity of service, and monetization opportunities." Ericsson already has a strong capability and a growing customer base in the operator CDN area. At Mobile World Congress the company will show a compelling side-by-side comparison of the performance and capabilities of a standard network and one enhanced by the new Media Delivery Network solution.

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.
