While most cable technologists insist that the industry’s HFC pipes still have long lives ahead of them, cable operators are clearly installing more and more fiber strands in their networks. Whether they’re planning to go mostly all-fiber like Altice or pursue a Fiber Deep strategy like Comcast, Cox, Liberty Global and other major MSOs or just split more and more fiber nodes, operators are fattening up on fiber to deliver more bandwidth, remove active devices, run passive DOCSIS and leverage PON technology on their networks, as well as support their 4G and 5G wireless initiatives. In this webinar, working with our partners at SCTE/ISBE and our sponsors, we’ll explore the implications of cable’s furious fiber feeding frenzy.

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.
