Noteworthy Women in Wireless Infrastructure – 2023

Lori Dawson

Senior Director, Service Engineering

“Over the past several years, the wireless industry has been going through a digital transformation. Historically, a wireless network was comprised of telecom equipment, but with the recent digital transformation, wireless networks have evolved to an internet protocol based network. To keep up with the trends, my engineering team had to evolve and expand their skill set to include information technology (IT) in addition to traditional telecom. To support this change in technology, I developed a continuous learner culture on my team that encourages engineers to try new things without fear of failure. Today, these engineers are working in a multi-cloud environment and deploying services that support our customers’ needs faster than ever before. I am very proud of how my team leaned into learning this new technology and how the culture that I have developed within my team has supported their development.”
