Steve Bell, Senior Analyst, Heavy Reading

Charlie Ashton, Senior Director, Business Development, Wind River

The Internet of Things (IoT) is a huge opportunity for communications service providers, simply because of the sheer scale of investment it will attract and the business impact it will have globally. This webinar will explore the critical factors and obstacles that communications service providers need to be aware of as they consider the development of their network architecture to address the market and meet the expectations of customers. Steve Bell, Heavy Reading's senior IoT analyst, will talk about the landscape and some of the strategies that mobile operators have adopted to address the market. He will also talk about how embracing software-centric and cloud-hosted core networks will better position operators to match infrastructure to increasingly diverse services at a relatively low incremental cost. This approach also enables early-stage implementation of LTE network slicing, which will be a key enabler of IoT and is a core component of the 5G vision since it enables "the many services on one network" concept.

Wind River is the leading supplier of carrier-grade NFV infrastructure platforms. Charlie Ashton will talk about the need to underpin these IoT systems and services with a high reliability and secure backbone network to ensure the critical applications have the primary connection they require when they need it. Charlie will also identify how the Titanium Server virtualization platform and Titanium Cloud ecosystem can help overcome the many identified challenges and maximize the IoT opportunity.

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.
