Georgios Gkellas, 5G PLM, Mobile Core, Nokia

Nick Cadwgan, Director IP Mobile Network Marketing, Nokia

The networking industry is pushing the pace of 5G development. Service providers, and other organizations in the enterprise and public sector, must then determine how best to support their current or planned mobile broadband and IoT/MTC services while providing a path to 5G. The evolution of today’s network core will be central to this transformation. In this webinar, Heavy Reading’s Gabriel Brown, along with representatives from Nokia, will discuss the proposed 5G NGC functional architectures being proposed in 3GPP standards. It will identify why a ‘cloud-native’ packet core architecture is a requirement not only for future 5G services, but for existing or planned 4G mobile broadband and IoT/MTC services as well.

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.
