Server performance and data center network traffic are growing dramatically and the total I/O bandwidth per rack is approaching 5 Tbit/s. New technologies and virtualization are transforming the network architecture within data centers. The 25G, 50G, 100G, 200G and 400G solutions that are being developed to support low cost links use new module form factors, PAM4 modulation, innovative manufacturing, photonic integration and silicon photonics. This session will cover the latest developments, including data center architectures, technologies and components.

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.
