The radio access network (RAN) is the critical asset that underpins the world’s largest technology platform – mobile communications. As service providers seek greater performance and leaner operating models, CloudRAN is emerging as critical to the new wireless network architecture.

This webinar investigates state-of-the-art commercial CloudRAN technology and looks ahead to the new architectures, and new deployment models, that will drive ongoing performance improvement in 4G LTE and 5G NR. It will discuss key challenges operators face (coordination, transmission, synchronization, etc.) and illustrate potential solutions.

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.
