SHENZHEN, China -- ZTE Corporation (0763.HK / 000063.SZ), a major international provider of telecommunications, enterprise and consumer technology solutions for the Mobile Internet, was the first in the industry to demonstrate the verification based on Narrowband-Internet of Things (NB-IoT) standards in China Mobile (CMCC)’s 5G innovation laboratory on the 31st May 2016 during the 1st Global 5G Event. Since the 3GPP NB-IoT standards are expected to be frozen late June, ZTE is following the 3GPP standardisation carefully and is ready to launch a series of new technologies and products. This demo supports the coming CMCC IoT Developer Conference that will occur early June. And this demonstration also showed ZTE’s innovation capability in IoT, which will enable the company to promote the rapid development of the NB-IoT ecosystem.

The network functions virtualization (NFV)-based virtual core network was used in this NB-IoT demonstration. ZTE’s mature 4G base station simulated the real commercial environment, and demoed the basic NB-IoT services and some crucial features. This demo indicates that the NB-IoT system is maturing.

As the NB-IoT technologies and ecosystem are developing quickly, the MIIT held an NB-IoT conference mid-April 2016 to promote NB-IoT standards and the industry’s maturity. Looking ahead, the NB-IoT technologies will deliver ubiquitous cellular IoT coverage by 2020. The commercialisation of NB-IoT greatly expands the possibilities of the communications industry. Together with its global partners, ZTE has been promoting and validating the NB-IoT technologies development, and has witnessed the large-scale commercialisation of NB-IoT technologies.

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.
