ZCorum, a leading provider of managed broadband services and diagnostics
software, announced today that it has added two enhancements to its TechVizion app. TechVizion is the company's mobile
app that is used in conjunction with its TruVizion broadband diagnostics software. The company updated the app to
include a CMTS diagnostic tab, as well as providing a view of the modem screen on tablets similar to what is available in
their TruVizion desktop software.
According to Scott Helms, Vice President of Technology at ZCorum, the CMTS diagnostic tab provides information
on the status of all cable modems on the plant right from a smartphone or tablet. “With one tap you can now see the
number of modems on the CMTS that are online, offline and those that are attempting to connect.”

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.
