BOXBOROUGH, Mass. -- Crossbeam and Spirent Communications today announced results of the industry’s first public network security tests that emulate more than a million simultaneous mobile subscribers using their smartphones and tablets. Conducted by EANTC, an internationally recognized independent test center, the tests evaluated the effectiveness of network security devices and how they perform under extremely demanding real-world conditions. Test results showcase what is necessary to credibly validate security performance, and provide reliable guidance for mobile operators as they seek to build network security infrastructure that can handle growing user demand for 4G/LTE networks.

Spirent, the leader in networks, devices and services testing; Crossbeam, a provider of high-performance network security platforms; and EANTC collaborated to define a set of real-world test scenarios that emulated the performance impact of network security being enabled in a mobile network environment.

“With so much misleading information about security product performance and the unpredictability of threats and traffic demands, there has been no clarity around what to test for and what methodology to use,” said Chet Gapinski, vice president, product development at Crossbeam. “Any single measurement, such as network throughput, is meaningless unless tested and measured in combination with other metrics under real-world conditions. We saw an important opportunity to work with Spirent and EANTC on a set of real-world tests to move the industry forward to provide more accurate, uniform guidance.”

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.
