SANTA CLARA, Calif. -- BayPackets, Inc., a provider of enhanced voice and data solutions for wireless, wireline and VOIP operators, today announced that its carrier-proven Agility Network Services Platform (NSP) and applications are now available on Linux. With its Linux offering, BayPackets provides carriers with an open, cost-effective, high performance option for deploying enhanced services on off-the-shelf Linux-based hardware instead of on traditional proprietary operating systems. To learn more about BayPackets' solutions, visit booth #617 at Spring VON, taking place March 28-April 1 at the Santa Clara Convention Center.

"Linux is the fastest growing operating system worldwide. Our decision to support Linux reflects the increasing demand from service providers for a more open, affordable infrastructure," said Ken Epps, president and chief executive officer of BayPackets. "The convergence of data and voice services, as well as carrier migration to distributed architectures, has brought the cost and flexibility advantages of Linux to the forefront. BayPackets' NSP, in conjunction with Intel(R) Architecture-based carrier-grade platforms, can deliver hardware cost-performance improvements of up to 40 percent to our carrier customers."

BayPackets'Agility NSP is a next-generation enhanced services platform that can be deployed as a service control point (SCP) or application server in a carrier's network. It offers network operators unprecedented openness and flexibility in the building, managing and provisioning of new voice and data services, allowing them to easily tailor their offering to the needs of their business and consumer customers. At the same time, operators are empowered to optimize their investment in traditional, circuit-switched networks, while providing a seamless migration path to packet-based networks.

"Increasingly, carrier-grade Linux and Intel Architecture-based server platforms are becoming a popular infrastructure option for service providers seeking to benefit from a more cost-effective means of deploying enhanced voice and data services," said Taufik Ma, general manager of the Enterprise Platforms and Services Division at Intel. "Companies such as BayPackets will drive adoption of these standards-based open-architecture platforms and operating systems to lower the cost and time required to deploy next- generation networks and services while supporting higher subscriber workloads."

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.
