PARIS -- Alcatel-Lucent (Euronext Paris and NYSE: ALU) is today announcing that it is to launch a new portfolio of OSS (operations support systems) capabilities within its Motive portfolio of customer experience solutions. The aim of the portfolio is to harness the benefits of cloud technologies to reduce costs and enhance services via a totally new approach to automating a service provider’s operations.

The Motive Dynamic Operations portfolio creates a clear path for service providers to migrate to the cloud by making their operational infrastructure as agile as the virtualized network and data center. The portfolio innovates in three unique ways: a new foundation that can dynamically identify and track all network resources; fully automated, programmable OSS that can fulfil orders and assure services; and a ‘self-healing’ environment driven by big data network analytics that evolves from automated recovery to predictive management.

Today’s OSS environment is highly fragmented, manually intensive and costly to maintain, making it a substantial barrier to the dynamic delivery of cloud services., The Motive Dynamic Operations portfolio – to be launched later this year - will enable operators to realize the promise of virtualized networks offered by NFV (Network Function Virtualization) and SDN (Software Defined Networking) technologies.

OSS refers to the systems service providers use to manage their networks including service fulfillment to deliver new services and service assurance to keep the network running properly. While service providers are rapidly embracing innovations around IP networks, cloud technology and virtualized network functions, industry innovation in OSS has lagged.

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.
