LAS VEGAS -- Comptel Plus Spring 2014 -- Competitive service providers nationwide flocked to Vegas, many to escape unseasonably cold and snowy weather in their home venues. The usual interconnection deal-making took place, but this time against the backdrop of coming changes in the industry's structure, fuelled by the Federal Communications Commission's upcoming IP transition review.

Light Reading was there with an iPhone camera to bring this slightly blurry view of the proceedings.

Re: Debating the Future of Copper
From Spring flowers to solemn copper discussing men, to March kite flying and the gamblers, what a perfect place for Comptel 2014. Yep, it would be interesting to know if anything was solved and the FCC has been duly advised of industry recommendations.

Debating the Future of Copper
All five of those guys look pretty grumpy to me... Did they figure it all out, and notify the FCC they had the solution?

@FakeMitchWagner - it looks like March Madness may be your best bet!

Carol, did you note any signs of change in response to current FCC rulings?

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.
