Sandra O’Boyle, Senior Analyst, Customer Experience and Analytics, Heavy Reading

Dan Deeth, Media & Industry Relations Manager, Sandvine

Fixed and mobile communications service providers (CSPs) are increasingly looking to video for revenue growth, by licensing or creating exclusive video content for distribution to subscribers. The proliferation of certain easy-to-use, inexpensive technologies has made piracy of live TV streams and on-demand video accessible to a "mass-market" of non-technical subscribers. Sandvine’s studies of network data show that the problem can easily become worth billions of dollars to a CSP. To avoid massive revenue loss, CSPs need tools to identify and quantify the problem, then take action to address it. During the webinar, Sandvine will discuss the results of its studies in the area as well as some of the network elements necessary to begin stemming revenue losses.

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.
