TAHLEQUAH, Okla. -- ADVA Optical Networking announced today that Rural Broadband Services Corporation (RBSC) is using ADVA Optical Networking's Ethernet Services Suite (ESS) to bring broadband connectivity to extremely underserved areas of the USA. Focusing initially upon Tahlequah, a city in Cherokee County, Oklahoma, RBSC used every aspect of ESS to rapidly rollout a scalable and robust fiber optic network. RBSC’s pioneering approach to introducing high-speed data services to underserved communities will act as a framework for further deployments within Oklahoma and potentially beyond. For the first time in its history, Tahlequah can now provide its residents with access to data-intensive applications, including media streaming, video conferencing and e-learning.

“When you see how broadband connectivity can change a life, how it can change a community, you fully realize the power of networks, the power of data,” said Roy Choates, president and CEO, RBSC. “Our work in Tahlequah is a milestone, not just for our team but for our country. We're showing the true of value of broadband to extremely underserved rural areas. For the first time, schools, hospitals, local businesses, entire communities are able to access services that so many of us take for granted. What's more, this is just the start. With the team at ADVA Optical Networking and their ESS, we're able to develop and deploy networks within an incredibly short amount of time. There are no hassles, no complexities. The ESS team does everything.”

ADVA Optical Networking's ESS is a range of comprehensive modular customer services that enables service providers to focus purely on meeting customer expectations as opposed to worrying about network complexities. This a la carte approach ensures service providers can develop a tailored package that meets their exacting network demands. No more, no less. In addition to ESS, RBSC is also using ADVA Optical Networking's Global Network Operations Center (GNOC) team to monitor its network and immediately respond to any issues that may arise. This approach means fixed operating costs and guaranteed performance. As such, RBSC can concentrate solely on driving broadband services to underserved areas and communities, while ADVA Optical Networking's team ensures successful operations.

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.
