The promise of 5G is taking the largest technology platform in human history – mobile – and extending it to virtually every industry, every object and every connection. At the same time, 5G New Radio (NR) is urgently needed to meet the ever-increasing global mobile broadband needs. Consumers devour more and more data as our devices increasingly become the source of entertainment, deliver new immersive experiences and are always connected to the cloud. Is 5G all hype and years from being a reality? Quite the contrary.

Join us for this webinar to learn how we are accelerating the schedule for the 3GPP 5G NR Release 15 specification – the global 5G standard – to efficiently deliver fiber-like connections to our mobile devices starting in 2019. See the amazing technology inventions we demonstrated at Mobile World Congress 2017 that will serve as a bedrock for this acceleration. And hear how the Release 15 5G NR specification will not only rise up to meet our insatiable appetite for mobile data, but also provide a future-proof design to meet the full promise and vision of 5G.

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.
