DUBLIN -- Openet, a global leader of telecom business solutions and services, and telecom service-layer innovator OpenCloud today announced the successful integration of Openet Evolved Charging with OpenCloud’s Rhino Sentinel service layer. The integrated solution enables operators to migrate from outdated legacy IN service control points (SCPs) to a modern best-of-breed combination for flexible service definition, real time charging, rating and policy control.

Legacy IN replacement is being driven by the need to replace end-of-life products; the high cost of maintaining aging products; and operator frustration at the inflexibility of traditional telecoms equipment. Driving out costs and enabling more efficient change are essential survival strategies in the increasingly competitive telecoms services market.

Peter Dykes, senior analyst at Informa Telecoms & Media commented, “Following on from the integration of policy control with on-line charging, full integration between policy and charging control and the service layer is the next logical step in developing an architecture capable of supporting next-generation service while delivering a credible replacement for IN.”

The integration helps operators accelerate time to market for new services and business models while driving down the costs of telecom service innovation which have historically been associated with IN platforms.

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.
