James Crawshaw, Senior Analyst – OSS/BSS Transformation, Heavy Reading

Malathi Malla, Director, Product Marketing, Virtualization and Cloud solutions, Spirent

Complex applications placed on virtualized infrastructure require considerable amounts of testing and benchmarking. This helps determine and validate realistic expectations from cloud services and/or virtual service chains delivered by NFV. The ability to baseline and benchmark the underlying cloud infrastructure, and simulate any type of application workload allows you to validate both the functionality and performance of various applications and services (IaaS, PaaS, SaaS) running over this infrastructure. Join us to learn how Spirent can help you fast track your NFV-enabled cloud deployments and measure the health of your cloud.

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.
