Traditional networks are not optimized to deliver the on-demand bandwidth that enterprises need today. Traditional business processes used to plan, build and operate network infrastructure present obstacles to implementing an on-demand model. Additionally, the network infrastructure itself lacks the agility to deliver on-demand services quickly and cost-effectively. Independent research, conducted by ACG, found that costs are driven too high to profitably deliver services at attractive prices. Carrier SDN promises to change all this. It unifies service automation with network optimization so that network operators can deliver new on-demand network services cost-effectively and with great scale. How do you turn today’s costs into business strengths and profitability?

ACG’s independent study quantitatively shows how automated management of Layer 0 to Layer 3 will:

  • Reduce service creation time from 12 weeks to five weeks
  • Generate eight to nine times the revenue of present mode of operations (PMO) based services
  • Lower costs to deploy with payback of four months and five-year ROI of 400%

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.
