BUTZBACH, Germany -- Riedel Networks, provider of a high-performance global communication service platform designed for multinational corporations and broadcasters, today announced a new agreement with Viatel that will enable the upgrade and expansion of Riedel Networks' European MPLS network. Viatel provides high-capacity services to strategic point-of-presence (POP) locations across Europe. Representing a continuation of the two companies' successful partnership, this latest agreement enables Riedel Networks' further expansion into Amsterdam.

"Viatel is an important network partner for Riedel Networks, and we are very happy with the company's reliable performance in the delivery and operation of network services," said Michael Martens, managing director at Riedel Networks. "It is valuable to us that Viatel owns the infrastructure and maintains full end-to-end control, and this fact made the decision to expand further with this partner an easy choice."

Riedel Networks uses Viatel infrastructure as the basis for the services it delivers to its own customer base. The Viatel advanced fiber optic backbone network connects eight countries, 35 cities, and more than 120 European data centers, and it has metro fiber reach into the major carrier houses, data centers, and main Internet exchanges. With data centers in Dublin, London, Amsterdam, Paris, and Brussels, Viatel owns more than 8,500 km of fiber network infrastructure, which it has equipped with high-capacity optical DWDM technology and multi-service platforms.

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.
