HUNTSVILLE, Ala. -- ADTRAN, Inc., (NASDAQ:ADTN), today announced its Open Application Programming Interface (API) is gaining momentum in enabling service orchestration, customization and analytics through third-party platforms. ADTRAN offers a complete RESTful (Representational State Transfer) API within its broadband, enterprise and Wi-Fi access portfolios. As a result, the company makes it easy for a diverse ecosystem of service providers, channel partners, enterprises and third-party developers to create unique customer applications, differentiate network services and automate network operations to save time and increase revenue.

Many service providers are challenged by the complexity associated with implementing, scaling and creating customized services that address individual customer demands. Traditional Wi-Fi solution vendors open some API features such as presence, captive portal and guest access, and broadband infrastructure providers are moving towards open APIs as part of their SDN initiatives. ADTRAN provides a fully open RESTful API that supports advanced flexibility in service automation to improve operational efficiency; service orchestration to deliver better user-experiences; and analytics to gain insight on network usage and users.

For example, a NY-based art school leveraged the ADTRAN Open API to create a device registration portal so its students can safely register game consoles, smart TVs and other connected devices on the school’s wireless network. This capability gives the school an extended clear view into what devices are on the network and helps them better provision bandwidth and network traffic. Additionally, a nationwide service provider is using the Open API to allow customers to centralize the management and provisioning of any wireless access point at any location, eliminating the need for manual intervention from the service provider or the customers’ network administrators.

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.
