SHENZHEN, China -- According to Huawei, a leading global information and communications technology (ICT) solutions provider, 2013 was the most significant year for LTE development worldwide to date. More than 110 commercial LTE networks were launched, with multiple new data optimization technologies reaching maturity and seeing deployment. At the forefront of these developments, advances in antenna technologies for flexibly handling additional spectrum bands and enabling remote electrical tilt (RET), configuration and maintenance, took a substantial step forward.

2013 represented a milestone year for Huawei’s antenna business, with more than 1.65 million Huawei antennas now deployed in over 155 countries for 360 operators on six continents. This high growth is attributed to breakthrough deployments in China, Russia and European countries, including the UK and France. In China, Huawei’s multi-band ultra broadband antenna solution is being used to help build the country’s new LTE network.

According to ABI Research, a leading market research and market intelligence firm, LTE is creating significant opportunities for mobile carriers, leading to a need for them to carefully consider their LTE antenna options to meet their long-term goals on capital expenditure. In a recently released report LTE Antenna Design The Performance of Your Network, ABI analyzed the antenna marketplace and evaluated vendor companies within an “Innovation” versus “Implementation” matrix. All major LTE antenna vendors were evaluated in terms of innovation and technology capabilities including ultra-wide band support for multiple spectrum bands, multiple input multiple output (MIMO), electric tilt, antenna dipole design, passive inter-modulation (PIM) minimization, and active antenna system (AAS). Huawei achieved high scores across all categories and, according to ABI, accounted for 20.7 percent of global LTE antenna shipments in 2013, ranking it second globally.

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.
