Verizon opened the doors to its Innovation Center in Waltham, Mass., last week to show off some of what it and its partners have been working on.

The center was opened in 2011 to help Verizon and others develop LTE products. Now the Waltham operation more closely mirrors a similar center in San Francisco.

Re: verizon innovation
It is gratifying to see a sense of direction given about the future.   The question is how this will accelerate the era of driveless cars that we all hope to see--soon. :-)

I have to say is that if Verizon like to take control of the customer in Ma is with the help of the Fios. If they think that the cell phone part of verizon will be able to gain more customer that will be a sad thing. The cable company and goggle and other company or looking more into what customer need not hope for.

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.
