Prolifics Launches Professional Women's Network

NEW YORK, NY -- (Marketwired) -- 05/30/13 -- Prolifics, an award-winning, end-to-end systems integrator, today announces that the Prolifics Professional Women's Network has been launched by Linda Connolly (Business Development Director), Debbie Marcet (Account Executive) and Robyn Dixon (Alliance Manager).

The Prolifics Professional Women's Network (PPWN) was established to provide a formal mechanism through which the women of Prolifics can interact and share ideas in an effort to promote professional growth. PPWN will provide a forum for female employees to discuss professional challenges that are unique to women and help each other by sharing our perspectives on issues that affect us as women in the workplace. PPWN plans to also reach beyond the walls of the Prolifics organizations by interacting with other corporate women's organizations to expand their networks and gain experience from a wider range of women.

The inaugural meeting featured Sandy Carter, VP at IBM in Social Business Evangelism, and discussed the history and activities of the IBM Super Women's Group (SWG) and her experiences including insight on women and work issues.

Linda Connolly states, "We're all very excited about this networking group. The response we've had from both our employees and future speakers has been energizing. We look forward to the Prolifics Professional Women's Network also providing additional opportunities to interact with our customers, and offer ways to build additional relationships bringing an even more positive impact to our business."

Cell networks have the advantage of long-range communications, reaching an estimated 90% of the world. But cell networks such as 2G, 3G and LTE consume lots of power and were designed for connecting people. They are not optimized for low- or battery-powered devices or for IoT applications with infrequently transmitted data. Cell IoT modules that support narrow-band IoT and 4G cell networks will enable cell connectivity, device management, and app enablement for low-power wide-area network IoT. B...
