The simultaneous advancement of SDN frameworks and rollout of next-generation access systems with programmatic management and control APIs establishes a vision for the future of plug-and-play integration and rapid service deployment. Yet as open source and multi-vendor systems and software come together, the compatibility challenges of data models, network operations methodology and virtualization best practices become apparent.

The cost to integrate new vendors and technology is one of the largest impediments to network transformation, making the move to DevOps and automation an elusive goal. With the presentation of two case studies, this webinar describes how virtualized management and microservice connectors are bringing new physical layer technologies (e.g., NG-PON2) to cable's DOCSIS protocols and accelerating the commercialization of Central Office Rearchitected as Datacenter (CORD) architectures.

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.
