DUBLIN -- Openet, a global leader in the supply of real-time BSS (business support systems) and customer engagement systems, announced that its Network Selection Intelligence (NSI) solution has been incorporated into Liberty Global’s Connect App. Liberty Global’s newly-released Connect App offers its users seamless connectivity access both in and out of the home within the same, easy-to-use interface, including Wi-Fi on-boarding and roaming experience to 10 million Liberty Global’s hotspots in Europe.

For Liberty Global’s Connect App users, NSI will create a better quality of experience (QoE) when connected to Public Wi-Fi, “Wi-Free” and International Roaming Partner access points. The NSI solution provides easy on-boarding for mobile and broadband customers with one-time setup for hassle-free Wi-Fi. Once on-boarded, users have seamless access to better bandwidth and coverage, including indoor coverage, even in congested areas.

In addition, NSI provides Liberty Global with a range of analysis capabilities including tools to identify and to blacklist hotspots when a connection is rejected, to receive analytics, Wi-Fi usage information for all subscribers, and offload statistics for Android users. NSI allows Liberty Global’s various operators to have real-time visibility of device and user requirements. MVNOs using the Liberty Global network will also experience reduced termination costs as customers are commuted onto local Wi-Fi options.

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.
