PARIS -- Alcatel-Lucent (Euronext Paris and NYSE: ALU) is to license product software to the Taiwan-based manufacturer of broadband and wireless products, Askey Computer Corporation, to enable their development of products to enhance the quality and speed of 3G broadband services within homes.
As more people use smartphones, tablets and other mobile devices within their homes to make calls, play games and access the Internet, many find service coverage is poor and data connections are slow. This can happen for a number of reasons, including the building structure impeding the signal from a mobile base station, and the physical distance from a radio tower.
To solve these issues, mobile operators are turning to residential small cells – small wireless base stations that can be installed in the home and connect to existing wireline broadband connections – to provide huge improvements in coverage and quality.
Light Reading is spending much of this year digging into the details of how automation technology will impact the comms market, but let's take a moment to also look at how automation is set to overturn the current world order by the middle of the century.
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.
