MADRID -- Telefónica, one of the world's leading providers of telecommunications, is modernizing its nationwide networks and expanding its 4G network to significantly improve performance and capacity in Spain. The operator has selected Nokia Networks as key supplier for radio access equipment and professional services in Andalusia, Galicia, Castilla Leon and Levante over a period of three years.

“Our customers are increasingly adopting advanced smartphones and enjoying data-heavy multimedia content, so delivering more services while improving their quality is more important than ever,” said Joaquín Mata at Telefónica. “This modernization, one of the greatest of the kind ever carried out in Spain, will allow us to achieve these goals and optimize the performance of our network to offer the best possible user experience.”

Nokia Networks will upgrade Telefónica’s mobile network and implement 4G using its Single RAN Advanced solution, based on the compact, scalable Flexi Multiradio 10 Base Station, recently ranked a leader in capacity and deployment flexibility by the analyst firm Current Analysis*. The company will also deliver its Multicontroller Platform for the 3G Radio Network Controller (RNC) to further increase efficiency and resilience. Telefónica’s networks will be monitored, managed and optimized by Nokia’s NetAct management system.

As part of the agreement, Nokia Networks will also provide Customer Experience Management, including its Serve atOnce Traffica real-time monitoring platform, Serve atOnce Intelligence (SAI) reporting solution and Customer Care Automation solution.

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.
