ELK GROVE VILLAGE, Ill. -- ISCO International, LLC, a leading provider of flexible spectrum conditioning solutions for wireless service providers, today announced that Shenandoah Telecommunications Company (Shentel) has successfully implemented ISCO's Proteus spectrum conditioning equipment in order to increase capacity, improve performance and provide a superior customer experience from Shentel's PCS network.

The implementation of Proteus spectrum conditioning is part of a comprehensive effort by Shentel to increase capacity, expand coverage and enhance the quality of its 3G wireless network. Shentel provides network coverage along the highway I-81 corridor from Harrisonburg, Va. to Harrisburg, York and Altoona, Pa

"It is very important for us to ensure that Shentel's customers enjoy an exceptional network experience, free from the many types of interference that negatively affect the performance of the RF link and their cell phone service," said Dexter Torculas, Director of Wireless Engineering for Shentel. "The Proteus digital signal processing technology from ISCO helps us to achieve our performance goals."

"Spectrum has always been a scarce commodity and now with mobile data traffic beginning to overwhelm the network, wireless service providers need to do everything possible to protect that valuable resource and squeeze all available capacity from it," said Gordon Reichard, CEO of ISCO Intl. "We help carriers maximize spectrum utilization via a process known as spectrum conditioning -- which means applying digital signal processing to deliver an RF signal clear of a variety of interferers, recover otherwise lost capacity, and possibly add capacity by enabling additional channels in the frequency band."

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.
