CAMBRIDGE, U.K. -- ip.access is today announcing the launch of its nanoGSMTM IP BSC, a basestation controller, to complement its all-IP GSM offering. The nanoGSM IP BSC has been designed specifically for use with the world's smallest basestation, the nanoBTSTM, as part of a GSM network. The nanoGSM solution allows network operators to add extra GSM capacity, coverage and services simply and cost effectively in areas such as shopping centres, airports and the underground, with applications covering retail and wireless office. In the wireless office, landlines are replaced by mobile phones, allowing workers more freedom and flexibility as well as benefits such as one phone, one number, one voicemail and one contacts book. The IP BSC is a software component that utilises standard computing platforms. It provides channel allocation functions, GPRS management and media gateway control protocol client functionality for easy integration with mobile softswitches and VoIP networks. It processes handover candidate selection according to user selectable and configurable algorithms, and hosts a CORBA based management agent to simplify operations and maintenance in the nanoGSM(tm) basestation sub-system solution. It also manages the collection and distribution of performance and quality of service measures within the basestation sub-system, and SMS-Cell Broadcast for the BTSs under its control. Traditional functionality normally found in a BSC is implemented in a separate off-the-shelf media gateway. This allows the IP BSC to operate as a GSM specific signalling gateway, with optimal cost/functionality trade-off to the benefit of all ip.access' customers. Nick Johnson, chief technical officer with ip.access, commented: "The addition of the nanoGSM IP BSC to our product range is an important step forward for ip.access. This complements our end-to-end GSM-over-IP solution allowing network operators to remove expensive TDM trunks and SS7 multiplexing equipment for their access network designs and offers the most flexible and cost effective last mile solution to their in-building and wireless office customers." ip.access 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.
