BARCELONA, Spain -- SK Telecom and Nokia Siemens Networks are working together to evaluate Nokia Siemens Networks’ newly launched Liquid Applications in the operator’s LTE network. Following a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) signed by the two companies in August 2012, they will sign an agreement on February 27, 2013 during the Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2013, to cooperate in the testing of Liquid Applications. As part of this collaboration, SK Telecom will evaluate Nokia Siemens Networks’ newly launched Radio Applications Cloud Server (RACS), which enables Liquid Applications, in the first half of 2013. Liquid Applications is an innovative network technology that helps operators provide a truly unique and personalized mobile broadband experience. This is achieved by turning base stations into a local hub for new service creation and delivery that exists closer to the mobile subscriber. SK Telecom will be the world’s first operator to test Liquid Applications in an LTE environment. The operator is focusing on realizing Service-Aware RAN (radio access network) as part of its evolution toward an upgraded network. Unlike traditional base stations that essentially only played the role of a communication pipe, Service-Aware RAN is an intelligent base station that provides customers with a unique mobile experience through a wide variety of customized services. Based on the diverse features of intelligent base stations such as localized processing, storage and access to real-time radio and network data, the operator expects to develop services and applications that deliver a contextualized and personalized experience to customers. Service-Aware RAN will be showcased at SK Telecom’s booth at Mobile World Congress 2013, Fira Gran Via, in Barcelona, Spain. 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.
