LONDON -- At the Eighth Global Mobile Broadband Forum, Schréder, a leading global outdoor lighting solutions provider and Huawei jointly launched Shuffle Site, a multipurpose pole-shaped small cell solution. This solution combines Schréder's multifunctional LED light column Shuffle and Huawei's outdoor small cell products. With an ergonomic and aesthetically pleasing appearance hosting several practical functions, Shuffle Site will help operators leverage urban light poles to deploy small cells to enhance the coverage and capacity of mobile networks.

The world is witnessing a fast-expanding mobile broadband user base. This is combined with increasingly diverse services, which is leading to a sharp growth in mobile traffic and creating a higher demand for coverage and capacity of mobile networks. Particularly in dense urban areas, operators are in urgent need to increase network sites to enhance coverage and improve capacity. The common approach of deploying rooftop sites can no longer satisfy the requirements of growing traffic demand. Difficult site access has become one of the biggest challenges for improving service experience on mobile networks.

Schréder is the largest outdoor lighting solutions provider in Europe. In 2015, it launched a multi-purpose light pole product Shuffle. Huawei's small cell products are small and highly integrated. With joint designs and cooperation, Huawei's outdoor integrated small cells as well as their antennas and transmission devices are integrated as separate modules within Schréder's Shuffle products to form the Shuffle Site solution. As Huawei's small cells develop, Shuffle Site supports modular upgrades for easy evolution and increased functionality. During demonstrations showcased at the forum, Shuffle Site attracted wide attention from operators, customers, and industry customers from all over the world.

Shuffle Site is mainly intended for streets in dense urban areas, pedestrian street-level walkways, squares, and railway stations. By integrating small cells with light poles, Shuffle Site allows network sites to blend in well with its surroundings. This will promote the cooperation between the urban utility authority and operators in making comprehensive plans for light poles and mobile networks in cities.

On the sideline of this year's forum, Schréder and Huawei signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU) on strategic cooperation. Both parties are determined to expand cooperation and engage in joint efforts to realize the vision of fully connected cities.

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.
