OSLO, Norway -- Huawei, a leading global information and communications technology (ICT) solutions provider, and Broadnet, a leading provider of fiber-based data communications in Norway, today announced the launch of the Nordic’s first, and Europe’s biggest, IP core network enabled for commercial use of 400G technology. Bringing a more diversified and efficient service experience to large organizations and enterprise customers, the launch of this network is further testament to Huawei’s leading capabilities with 400G router line cards and its ability to help carriers implement future-ready networks.

Per Morten Torvildsen, CTO of Broadnet, remarked: “I am confident that our cooperation with Huawei will be fruitful and profitable. Huawei’s rich experience in the fixed network area, and especially IP, will help us to develop the most ‘future proof’, high-speed and cost efficient network in Norway.”

“We are pleased to join Broadnet in deploying Europe’s biggest commercial 400G-enabled IP core network. Together, we will promote and popularize 400G technology in the industry. Huawei will work with Broadnet to build a high-quality and high-reliability network and to promote the application of Broadnet’s nationwide fiber network,” said Eric Zhang, CEO of Huawei Technologies Norway.

The Huawei NE5000E 400G core router allows flexible subcards to be removed and re-installed, and supports flexible combinations of 100GE, 40GE, and 10GE boards, boasting a smooth extension to Terabit/s-level capability for each slot. The Huawei NE5000E core router will help Broadnet to optimize the network architecture and make it more flexible, reduce the bandwidth cost of each bit, and improve customer satisfaction. With the Huawei NE5000E core router, Broadnet will stand out in the market with its fixed network services and make rapid progress in future-oriented network evolution. As a leader in global IP technologies, Huawei carrier IP products and solutions have been deployed by 45 of the world's top 50 telecom operators. According to data from Infonetics, Huawei had the highest growth rate in the global IP market in Q4 2013.

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.
