BARCELONA -- Mobile World Congress -- For many companies, just being at the Mobile World Congress is enough, and to have a stand provides greater visibility.

That wasn't enough for Ericsson AB (Nasdaq: ERIC), though. Sure, it had a stand in Hall 8, along with its main rivals, including Alcatel-Lucent (NYSE: ALU), Huawei Technologies Co. Ltd. , Nokia Networks , and Nortel Networks Ltd. , each of which we also visited for a 20-minutes photo essay. (See MWC 2009: Alcatel-Lucent Booth Tour, MWC 2009: Nortel Networks Booth Tour, and MWC 2009: Nokia Siemens Booth Tour -- Huawei's is still to come.)

But when we asked the Ericsson team to pitch their best story and show off their top technology developments, we weren't taken around the stand -- we were shown around an entire hall. Ericsson booked out 6,600 square meters, practically the entire area of Hall 6 at The Fira showgrounds in Barcelona, to show off its wares (and hold a party for customers).

So, Ericsson had the space, but did it have anything worth showing off?

Find out in our photo tour below.

(We're still hoping for the home gateway that has an in-built espresso machine.)

See, this is why I wouldn't have been able to do these stories. Because all they would have to do is go, "We have espresso!" and I'd be like, "Dude!" and I'd sit there for 20 minutes drinking coffee.

So -- excellent job on these stand tours, Ray!

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.
