David Nowoswiat, Senior Product Marketing Manager, Nokia

With the Internet of Things (IoT) including massive Machine Type Communications (MTC), the continued growth of mobile broadband and 5G on the horizon, packet core will be required to connect to a greater variety of devices and deliver a broader range of services over wireless and fixed access.

These market and competitive factors place communication service providers (CSPs) at an inflection point from their overall business with regards to their mobile networks and operations. This in particular will drive an evolution in the packet core and next-generation mobile core product, solutions, operations and architectures.

In this webinar, we will discuss packet core/next-generation mobile core considerations in support of IoT/massive MTC and mobile broadband, and we'll show a path to 5G. It will highlight areas that CSPs need to consider, along with the cloud native concepts that need to be employed if CSPs are to profit from these opportunities.

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.
