SHENZHEN, China -- Huawei, a leading global information and communications technology (ICT) solutions provider, today unveiled its new WDM prototype, improving upon the current mainstream commercial products that use a 50GHz fixed spectrum interval. Boasting the highest spectrum efficiency among WDM products currently available, Huawei’s WDM prototype features a flexible spectrum interval with a minimum granularity of 12.5GHz, which not only increases the spectrum utilization and flexibility of the WDM system, but also lays a solid foundation for multi-carrier technologies and next-generation bandwidth-flexible optical networks beyond 100G. This highly efficient spectrum technology will enable carriers to build WDM networks that meet future needs.

The popularity of broadband services has triggered a rapid increase in transmission capacity and a drive towards 100G networks. Technologies beyond 100G WDM have now become the next research hotspots, with multi-carrier technology acknowledged as the solution for 400G and 1T transmissions. All current mainstream WDM systems are based on a 50GHz or 25GHz spectrum interval, as spectrum utilization is insufficient for 400G and 1T multi-carrier transmissions. The highly efficient WDM prototype developed by Huawei increases the spectrum utilization for large-capacity WDM systems. This compact spectrum solution will make the high-speed signals of the multi-carrier slimmer, ensuring the fiber is able to transfer signals more effectively.

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.
