CHICAGO -- Light Reading's Big Telecom Event –- The Big Telecom Event was a great success this week, provoking much discussion around critical topics impacting network operators today. You can read all about the event at our dedicated BTE show news site.

We took plenty of pictures during the event -- here are a few more to follow on from our first selection earlier this week. Click on the picture below to launch the slide show. (See BTE Day 1: The Big Pictures.)

Photos are by Light Reading art director Sasha Babarina, but she isn't responsible for the captions. (Society is to blame for those...)

Re: More Pictures From BTE
@Susan, good observation. 

Definitely, the engagement of women in the field of technology is definitely lacking.  It is an area that needs exposure and promotion, as well as development of the field for women. 

This is an area of growing importance - we need all the "human power" we can get.

DHagar, 

I liked the third slide as well. Rethinking complexity toward simplified networks sounds like a smart thing to do. 

The pictures show very low female presence, or maybe it's just these pictures?

Re: More Pictures From BTE
Congratulations - looks like a first class event!

Thanks for sharing - I liked the third slide (with idea of rethinking the complexity of current designs) with heavy lifting, and it appears that NFV-SDN is advancing and has the potential to further change the solutions offered.

I look forward to further reports coming from BTE - good stuff!

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.
