BATH, U.K. -- Cramer Systems today announced that SFR, the wireless division of Groupe Cegetel, France's number two telecommunications service provider, has completed the national rollout of the Cramer Systems inventory solution to manage the growth and development of its GSM900 and GSM1800 networks. SFR is using Cramer to maintain a centralized, accessible and continuously updated inventory of network resources across France. The local operations divisions and the supervision team at headquarters now share continuously up-to-date information on the network. The solution combines standard features of the Cramer product with functionality inspired by SFR's long-term use of the Cramer product set in an earlier project phase. "Cramer gives us tight control over our actual network and its planned evolutions," said M. Paul Corbel, VP Mobile Network for SFR. "It enables us to maintain the quality of the service delivered to the end customers." SFR is one of three French wireless operators licensed to provide 3G services in France. It plans to launch 3G services in 2004. Cramer CEO Jerry Crook expressed satisfaction at the news: "Cramer's relationship with its long term customers is deepening as our software meets and exceeds expectations of ROI and business value. Just as the industry is acknowledging that effective inventory management is key to meeting business objectives, so carriers are increasingly acknowledging Cramer as the key to effective inventory management." SFR Cramer Systems Ltd.

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.
