Alcatel-Lucent, Telekom Austria AG, Hutchison 3G Austria GmbH and TeliaSonera AB close out the week's regional roundups.

  • Upgrades from financial analysts have given Alcatel-Lucent's share price an early year boost, though its stock is still only commanding a price of $1.46 on the New York Stock Exchange (up by 5 percent since the turn of the year) and €1.17 on the Paris exchange (up nearly 16 percent so far this year). For more on the upgrades, see this report and this analysis. The vendor recently arranged new credit facilities, a move that improved confidence in the company's future.

  • The Austrian mobile market is a little more settled today after the completion of two acquisitions. Telekom Austria has finally completed its €390 million ($507 million) takeover of budget brand YESSS! Telekommunikation GmbH, while Hutchison 3G Austria has sealed the €1.3 billion ($1.7 billion) acquisition of Orange Austria.

  • Former TeliaSonera veteran Thomas Haug will be awarded the Draper Prize by The American National Academy of Engineering for his role in the development of NMT, the mobile technology that spawned GSM. In all, five mobile technology pioneers, including Light Reading Hall of Fame inductee Martin Cooper, will receive the prize this year. For more, see this press release.

    I can't remember how many people I heard say in 2012 that ALU was looking like the next industry casualty and would follow Nortel into extinction... obviously it's not out of danger yet but there are increasing signs that it's stable enough to survive in the immediate future.

    But who knows what the coming months will bring -- could be new lifelines, could be fresh setbacks... the TiMetra acquisition now looks like the best bit of M&A of the past decade...-á

    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.
