HUNTSVILLE, Ala.-- ADTRAN, Inc. (NASDAQ:ADTN), a leading provider of next-generation networking solutions, today announced as part of its Enabling Communities, Connecting Lives program, that C Spire is leveraging ADTRAN’s broadband platform to transform the communities it supports into hubs for investment and economic growth. C Spire Fiber to the Home is bringing ultra-fast Gigabit broadband that is 100 times faster than traditional broadband services to thousands of homes, businesses and schools across the Mississippi portion of its service area. ADTRAN’s Gigabit broadband architecture is enabling C Spire to provide their subscribers with a faster, richer and more vibrant broadband experience that will change the way they connect, work and play with communities and businesses around the world.

A key component of C Spire’s service roll out is a proactive community engagement plan. C Spire believes the tangible, community-wide benefits of Gigabit service delivery could enhance the quality-of-life of its residents and establish a new economic future for Mississippi. To ensure the community understands these benefits – including robust digital learning for schools, more efficient delivery of municipal services and entrepreneurial high-tech investment and jobs – C Spire encouraged communities to “Get Fiber First” with a competition to determine initial service roll out. Local communities embraced the challenge with creative, aggressive campaigns and nine partner communities were selected last November.

With ambitious plans to grow the number of cities, towns and neighborhoods serviced by C Spire Fiber to the Home, the company knew it needed a solution that would allow them to quickly ramp the initial service and easily scale to meet expected demand. ADTRAN’s Fiber-to-the-Home (FTTH) broadband portfolio is a purpose-built Gigabit architecture that delivers the ultra-flexible, high-capacity, deep-fiber solutions that C Spire required for this high-profile project. With ADTRAN’s Advanced Services Architecture to build upon, C Spire is able to deliver a mix of residential, enterprise and mobile backhaul services over a common, next-generation network with advanced service management and forward-looking network automation capabilities.

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.
