SEOUL -- SK Telecom, the largest mobile operator in Korea, has started to introduce 100G (gigabits per second) technology into its existing 40G network, to significantly increase its transmission capacity. To do this, the operator has selected Nokia Siemens Networks' DWDM (dense wavelength division multiplexing)* 100G technology and related services. The capacity expansion enables SK Telecom to simultaneously transmit up to 80 wavelengths of light, each carrying data at 100G on a single optical fiber, giving a total capacity of up to 8 Tbps (terabits per second) per fiber. "With increasing smartphone adoption in Korea, there is a surging demand for higher capacity networks. Operators such as SK Telecom need to expand their network capacity multifold, and they need to do so cost efficiently by optimizing the use of existing fiber," said Tapani Sairanen, head of Asia and Middle East cluster, customer sales support, Optical Networks, Nokia Siemens Networks. "Our scalable and flexible optical products help SK Telecom transition to a 100G network cost efficiently, as our technology eliminates the need for costly installation of more fiber. This ultra-fast data transmission allows SK Telecom to continue to ensure a superior mobile broadband customer experience." SK Telecom

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.
