In today’s networks, the challenges faced by network operations teams are increasing, especially when trying to view collected data in a meaningful way, and then using that information to better enable operations teams' day-to-day activities. While ensuring that SLAs are being met is important, placing focus on the end user to make certain they are receiving the best QoS possible is even more critical. With the introduction of SDN, performance monitoring systems will become even more crucial to assure network efficiency and QoS. A heavy emphasis is now being placed on participants in this ecosystem to collaborate on what each element should provide in order to maximize not only development efficiency, but customer experience.

In this webinar you will:

  • learn how an assurance solution can be integrated into a real time network OSS view
  • take a deep dive into the emerging technology and how it will improve that capability set for emerging SDN and 5G networks



 

Brian Santo, Senior Editor, Test & Measurement/Components, Light Reading
Santo joined Light Reading on September 14, 2015, with a mission to turn the test & measurement and components sectors upside down and then see what falls out, photograph the debris and then write about it in a manner befitting his vast experience. That experience includes more than nine years at video and broadband industry publication CED, where he was editor-in-chief until May 2015. He previously worked as an analyst at SNL Kagan, as Technology Editor of Cable World and held various editorial roles at Electronic Engineering Times, IEEE Spectrum and Electronic News. Santo has also made and sold bedroom furniture, which is not directly relevant to his role at Light Reading but which has already earned him the nickname ‘Cribmaster.’

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.
