Network operators are looking to virtual routers to increase their service agility, revenue opportunities and operational efficiency, and are implementing them in a wide variety of use cases. In this webinar, Juniper Networks’ Gurudatt "Guru" Shenoy will discuss the increasingly important role of virtual routers in modern networks and trends in virtual router adoption. He will also introduce the Juniper Networks vMX, a fully featured, virtual-edge router that runs on commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) x86 servers, Amazon Web Services (AWS) Marketplace and the Juniper Networks NFX250 Network Services Platform, and explain the benefits it brings to provider edge, Hybrid Cloud Interconnect, route reflection, residential broadband and managed service use cases.

Guru and Heavy Reading moderator Sterling Perrin will be joined by Erik Bais of A2B Internet and Steven Teitzel of IBM who will discuss their production experience with virtual routers, techniques being applied in vCPE use cases at the network edge and observations and solutions that will help those in the industry realize their goals in the most efficient manner.

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.
