The trigger point for significant commercial deployments of transport SDN may depend on defining, testing and assuring interoperability of key network functions and interfaces.

In the 2016 OIF SDN Transport API Interoperability Demonstration, the OIF and ONF partnered to lead the industry toward the wide-scale deployment of commercial SDN by testing ONF T-API standards.

In this webinar, you will learn:

  • How the interoperability test and demonstration, managed by the OIF, addressed multi-layer and multi-domain environments in global carrier labs located in Asia, Europe and North America
  • What T-API modules and uses cases were tested
  • What was learned and the next steps
  • The benefits of T-API and interop testing from a carrier's perspective

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.
