Amani Al-shawabka received her Bachler Degree in Communication Engineering from Yarmouk University Jordan. She started her professional career in mobile network companies in 2003, one year before completing her degree. At the time, she joined the Orange Mobile core network team where she gained extensive experience in all mobile NSS (Network Switching Subsystem ) such as MSCs/VLRs/HLR/ SGSN/GGSN/ SCCP signaling )Global System for Mobile Communications (GSM) and Data mobile equipment). That experience was so valuable, as she understood the NSS structure, design, how they work, how the information is being transferred, how to define and implement the routing to complete the GSM and Data cycle, and the integration between these equipment and other supporting equipment such Base Station Subsystem (BSS) and Intelligent Network (IN).After gaining this technical experience, she was interested in diversifying her career experience in other aspects, specifically marketing. she was offered an opportunity in marketing at Umniah Mobil Company. That opportunity helped her understand the mobile market demands in Jordan and she managed to build, design and introduce new products and services that fulfill the consumer needs. To enrich her marketing knowledge, she completed a MBA degree in Marketing in 2013. During the past few years, she was exposed to new concepts related to Machine-to-Machine (M2M) and Internet of Things (IoT) applications at mobile networks..
