WiFi & Small Cells Event held in Boston 2013
In an age where both mobile data and customer expectations continue to rise, the importance of addressing carrier network capacity and coverage issues is more critical than ever. WiFi has experienced its own unique renaissance as the unlicensed spectrum technology of choice, providing carriers with a myriad of opportunities and challenges. On the licensed spectrum side, interest in small cell technology has risen enormously in the last 12 months, and with investment and development continuing to grow, there is no doubt that small cells are here to stay. Offload and guaranteed QoS & QoE continue to be the primary motivators for carriers to examine the potential of both WiFi and Small Cells, and although both can achieve a similar aim, each comes with its own set of unique challenges and opportunities.
The inaugural Wifi and Small Cells North America event attracted 200 + attendees when it took place in Boston last month on April 24-25. These two co-located events provided carriers with a focused and distinctive opportunity to learn from and network with all the leading industry decision makers. Whether their expertise and interests lie with Small Cells, WiFi or both, the focused individual content and shared exhibition and networking space presented a fantastic opportunity to hear from the best in the business and form valuable new relationships.
