Dr. John Smee, Vice President, Engineering, Qualcomm Technologies

By now, you have likely heard about the big aspirations for 5G – a unifying connectivity fabric that will empower connected services across an array of world-changing use cases. But what are the technology innovations needed to meet these expanding connectivity requirements? And how close are we, as an industry, making this 5G world a reality?

Join us for this webinar to see how we are building a unified, more capable 5G New Radio (NR) to address the wide variation of 5G services, deployment models and spectrum bands/types. Hear about the 5G NR technology innovations being pioneered today that will bring unparalleled levels of performance and efficiency. And see firsthand the tremendous progress we are making towards making 5G NR a reality. Anyone can talk about 5G. Few are creating it.

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.
