Operators are challenged to deliver network performance, network coverage and a better user experience, as well as launch new digital services more quickly at competitive prices.

At the technology level, operators are transforming networks and IT systems to be virtualized, software-based, cloud native and more agile in terms of launching new services. How customers actually experience quality of service (QoS) needs to be monitored, as well as performance at a network or QoS level – across physical and virtual networks. This becomes even more critical in virtualized networks where services will be activated in real-time and need to be tested, fulfilled and assured in an automated fashion.

In September 2016, Heavy Reading surveyed more than 90 mobile operators globally to understand their future plans for QoS and QoE performance monitoring during the transition to virtualized networks. This unique research uncovers critical insight into how operators are addressing their needs.

Join Scott Sumner, director of business analytics at Accedian, and Sandra O'Boyle, senior analyst at Heavy Reading, as they share operator insights across key regions and discuss cost-effective strategies for monitoring the performance of virtual infrastructure and critical services.

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.
