FRANKFURT -- AT&T and K+S have signed a five-year contract to move K+S’s current network infrastructure to AT&T’s single global private network. This will enable K+S to connect its operations, comprising 200 locations in Europe, North and South America and Asia.

"We are looking forward working with AT&T as the optimal provider for this project,” said Kai Finke, Chief Information Officer, K+S AG.

AT&T is providing a hybrid virtual private network (VPN) service to K+S. Data flowing over its MPLS connections is complemented by a secondary Internet connection. This ensures the largest K+S locations have highly reliable access to the company’s global MPLS network. A second VPN connection offers the benefits of back-up and efficient use of network bandwidth. Other K+S locations can have secure, cost-effective Internet access locking these sites to the network.

“It’s clear that K+S wanted better visibility of its communications around the world. And that’s just what our strategic network services are designed to give them, providing them with a platform for supporting their future success,” said Vice President, Germany and Central Europe, AT&T, Joachim Kathmann.

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.
