No one denies the tremendous changes brought about by the Networked Society. Once a vision, but now a reality, the Networked Society projects a world with over 28 billion connected devices, providing services for everything from meter reading to connected cars. This Internet of Things (IoT) brings the promise of a connected world, supported by advanced networks and infrastructure, including 5G and Cloud. Together, 5G, Cloud and IoT provide the necessary speed, latency and flexibility to make certain complex new applications work better, every time.

But what are some of the new applications that we can expect to see in the near future? Join Ericsson and Intel on this not to be missed webinar to learn about the combined power of 5G, IoT and Cloud. We will explore key topics such as:

  • The capabilities of 5G, IoT and Cloud and their impact on the Networked Society
  • Compelling use cases in areas of healthcare, transportation and drones
  • The benefits of each use case – both in terms of business efficiencies and enhanced consumer experiences

This webinar event will benefit anyone interested in learning more about how 5G and Cloud are enabling new revenue streams through IoT. You’ll see how these technologies come together to enhance business opportunities across multiple industry verticals.

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.
