Cisco Systems Inc. (Nasdaq: CSCO) has nabbed another executive out of Juniper Networks Inc. (NYSE: JNPR). David Ward has joined Cisco with the title of service provider chief architect, Light Reading has learned.

Cisco hasn't publicly announced Ward's arrival. He'll be "responsible for defining Cisco's long-term Service Provider strategy, business and technology architectures, and roadmaps for technology innovation," according to a statement Cisco emailed to Light Reading.

That job was formerly done by Kelly Ahuja, the senior vice president of Cisco's Mobile Internet and Technology Group. Ahuja is keeping that title and shoving the "service provider chief architect" part Ward's way.

Ward will report to Pankaj Patel, the senior vice president who's co-leading Cisco's engineering group.

Ward was at Cisco before; he was an architect on IOS XR, the operating system running the CRS-1 core router. At Juniper, he'd been CTO of the platform services division.

He arrives at about the same time as Paul Mankiewich, who had been in CTO roles most recently at Juniper and earlier at Alcatel-Lucent. Mankiewich, whose arrival was announced on Cisco's blog Dec. 7, is now Cisco's CTO of service provider mobility.

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.
