Dublin Tech Summit to give away €200k of free tickets to women working in technology

The gender imbalance within the tech industry is a continued challenge to overcome and, in an effort to effect change, Dublin Tech Summit has announced that 500 complimentary tickets worth €200,000 will be made available to women working in tech, anywhere in the world. The two day event which has just sold out its tier three round of tickets, takes place in the CCD on 15 & 16 February 2017.

Keen to showcase the benefits of gender diversity especially across sectors such as IoT, FinTech, Big Data & Analytics and MedTech, DTS aims to play host to as many women in technology as possible, both on and off stage, encouraging lively discussion and holistic perspectives at all times.

With a focus on fostering lasting relationships and cultivating an intimate experience for each participant, the two day conference will see powerful and inspiring women such as the following address their business challenges and offer a unique viewpoint.

COO of Dublin Tech Summit, Noelle O’Reilly commented: “The average percentage of women working in the tech industry is 30 percent, with that percentage decreasing significantly as they rise through the ranks. Furthermore, only about seven percent of investor money goes to women-led startups. Here at DTS, our team has a gender split of 50/50. We do this not only in the interest of fostering diversity but also because it is proven that team like this outperform male dominated teams across the board. The creativity and enthusiasm when you bring a mixed group together is unrivalled. I can't wait to be inspired by female thought leader from across the globe in February and also, welcoming other women in technology to our event. Together, let’s do our bit, however small it may be, to change the ratio.”

Echoing her commitment, TED Talk sensation, Cindy Gallop added: “Women in tech - grab one of these tickets, show up at Dublin Tech Summit bringing your uniquely innovative perspectives and views (and startups that need to get funded), and help prove that gender-equal tech conference environments spark better ideas, amazing conversations, productive collaborations and many more disruptive, world-changing, money-making ventures."

These complimentary tickets are now available to all women working within the tech industry and will be offered on a first come, first served basis. To find out if you are eligible, visit dublintechsummit.com/women

Matt Rosenberg, Chief Revenue Officer at NetNumber, discusses how cloud-native architecture is accelerating the transition to 5G for telcos

NetNumber is accelerating the transition in the telecom industry to 5G as it starts a shift to cloud-native architecture to address the fast-paced demands of global subscribers and businesses.

NetNumber is offering the industry’s first cloud-native platform designed to ensure InterGENerational™ network performance addresses both the legacy and next-generation requirements of telecom networks. 

“NetNumber has developed the industry’s most robust cloud-native, InterGENerational platform that addresses both the legacy and 5G requirements of telcos,” said Matt Rosenberg, Chief Revenue Officer of NetNumber.

The platform provides vertical and horizontal scale-out with low latency, coupled with a suite of data replication capabilities, which provide flexible architectural options that can evolve with the changing network over time.

“Cloud-based solutions from other vendors tend to be limited in terms of supporting particular network generations or protocols. We’ve created our latest platform TITAN.IUM to allow customers to take any generation of applications, any generation of legacy services and protocols and move them into the new world of cloud-native architecture,” said Rosenberg.

“This is a really important part for a carrier to harmonise their network, bring data services together, bring legacy with new together in order to make a more effective and efficient network, as well as reduce their cost as they scale forward,” he said.

Established in 1999, NetNumber has fostered a strong team environment that leverages the industry’s best skills to offer software solutions tailored for carriers of all dimensions. Based outside of Boston and with presence in over 20 countries, the company delivers a range of products that address all generations (2G, 3G, 4G, 5G) of network functions in the core network, deep rooted security products and services, STIR/ SHAKEN and set of options around data services in more than 90 countries.

Steeped in experience in building telecom solutions, software, protocol stacks, and integration of third party tools, the company’s development organisation has proven to supply to the industry with the most reliable and flexible solutions on the market.

“At NetNumber, we focus on our core competencies – we are dedicated to providing industry expertise in signaling, routing, security, subscriber management and data services. We provide customers a strong ROI through platform-based solutions that reduce Capex and Opex in the long-term,” commented Rosenberg.

Five reasons why customers choose NetNumber:

  • Expertise -  NetNumber has experts with deep knowledge in signaling/routing, security, and subscriber database management.
  • Integration - An industry-first platform brings together domain services, applications, security, and global data services.
  • Scale - NetNumber has the ability to seamlessly increase network efficiency using vertical and horizontal scaling.
  • Speed - World-class solutions have the power to help companies create new service offerings and accelerate time to ROI.
  • Savings - Customers enjoy significant savings in capex and opex, flexible deployment models, and investment protection.

 

NetNumber and Virgin Mobile MEA

“We're very proud of our partnership with Virgin Mobile MEA as they've taken the concept of the InterGENerational platform into their regional network strategy,” commented Rosenberg. “That’s accelerated how they develop exceptional services across the Middle East and Africa region. 

“We work with them hand-in-hand to deliver multiple applications onto our platform which has enabled them to provide exceptional, advanced and innovative services to their customers across the Middle East, who demand high quality services. 

“What they've really taken advantage of is scale. What I mean by that is they are putting multiple generations of applications and services onto the same platform and distributing that data across their network. That has resulted in an advantageous position of time to market and operational savings. 

“Rather than having different applications for many different vendors that cause operational chaos, they've been able to consolidate that and reduce their operating costs by having everything on one common architecture.  We’ve had a long-term relationship with Virgin Mobile in Saudi Arabia, and recently signed an agreement with Virgin Mobile in Kuwait.”

Rosenberg says that with these solutions, Virgin Mobile MEA can take advantage of getting to the market much quicker and faster—which is what today’s discerning customer demands.
