How do you get it right? Business advantages and technical implications. 5G enables a wide range of new services, from support of massive media distribution to remote operation of machines and smart metering. This will result in very diverse requirements on the network. Characteristics such as latency, resilience, availability, performance, throughput and security will look very different depending on the type of service. Network slices with cloud-optimized applications and a very high degree of automation and resource orchestration are key capabilities to handle many requirements, and for 5G service delivery. During this webinar, Ericsson will present its view on cloud-optimized network applications and important related business and technology topics. These include the business values for service providers; 5G cloud data layer; and design principles for cloud-optimized network applications, including cloud native and automation.

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.
