Cable operators are now in the midst of the largest network transformation in decades. Cable headends are getting retrofitted with new equipment, the outside plant is being reconstructed, and set-tops, routers, modems and other on-premises devices will be swapped out in nearly every home.

Industry experts have speculated that soon, the Internet will be "fast enough" for whatever a consumer wants to do with it. Operators will become less concerned about the aggregate speed of the Internet and more concerned about delivering new services faster. Unfortunately, while the industry has focused on essential physical plant upgrades, many operators are not prepared to make this pivotal transition.

Join Calix and Light Reading as they explore how cable operators can leverage network intelligence with Software-Defined Access to improve operational efficiencies, deliver a differentiated customer experience, and speed past the competition.

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.
