Re: Ecclesiastes 1:9
A very fair comment.

Plotting a course between theory and reality will be interesting in 5G again, I'm sure. It feels like the direction of travel is positive. APNs have got easier, DECOR is specified, etc. in 4G. Micro-segemnataion is used on data center networks. In theory, multi-tenant "slicing" is a key part of the 5G system design...

Ecclesiastes 1:9
"There is nothing new under the sun". Who remembers when we launched GPRS? Remember how many APNs were envisaged? One per corporate account... One per service in the walled garden... Quite soon the configuration burden outweighed the value and most of this was collapsed into a "single APN to rule them all". Now an APN doth not make a slice...although some of the attributes were there...overlapping address space, policy-based routing etc. Don't get me wrong. I'm not anti-slicing. Far from it. Conceptually, anything which enables multi-tenancy to allow a hosting of verticals deep inside the telco is worthy of exploration. But each slice must earn its corn. And no dicing please!

Slicing and Dicing
I think every user having a slice is too granular right now. Will it happen in the future? Probably. But let's stay basic for the time being, shall we?

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.
