STOCKHOLM -- Transmode, a global supplier of packet-optical networking solutions, today announced that the Canadian operator Sogetel has deployed Transmode to extend its optical network infrastructure to enhance both reach and performance across Quebec. The new network delivers greater speed and capacity for Sogetel's metro networks in over 20 cities in the province, including Montreal and Quebec City.

Sogetel is one of the largest independent incumbent telecommunications companies in Canada. It offers a full range of services including telephony, television, internet, cloud services and mobile. When Sogetel decided to make a major infrastructure investment to upgrade its capacity, it turned to Transmode based on the previous excellent working relationship with local partner Sak Data and Transmode.

The new packet optical system deployed by Sogetel is based on Transmode's TM-Series and significantly increases capacity across the region-wide network. The network was preconfigured at Transmode's headquarters in Stockholm then transported and installed in only two weeks by Transmode's engineers and Sak Data. The installation was achieved without any interruption to ongoing services.

The new infrastructure can easily be migrated to integrated Layer 2 packet-optical, 100G or greater and ROADMs at a later date within the same chassis, giving Sogetel a fully-scalable and flexible network to match growing customer demand. Data Center Interconnect and Business Ethernet access are rapidly growing in Quebec and Sogetel can now offer expanded solutions to meet those needs with Transmode's solutions. Sogetel was already a customer of Transmode's and the flexibility of the previous TS-Series network allowed an easy upgrade path to the new TM-Series based network.

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.
