Satisfying the exponential growth in mobile data traffic has become the number one challenge for wireless carriers and their technology suppliers. Macro networks are overloaded as users, reliant on their mobile devices, embrace the burgeoning array of applications and services on offer.
For some time, Distributed Antenna Systems (DAS) have been primary solution for offloading capacity from the macro network and providing much needed in-building coverage. Now small cell solutions are attracting significant attention and have the potential to bring huge cost savings from the RF source standpoint. But there are many unanswered questions around small cell implementation and their performance once deployed.
And how DAS and small cells will coexist remains to be seen. Add in the resurgence of interest in carrier-grade Wi-Fi as an additional solution for freeing up much-needed capacity on the macro network, and the result is an exciting time for the DAS and small cells market. There are opportunities abound and many business and technical questions to be answered.
The leading event keeping track of this dynamic market sector is ACI’s annual DAS & Small Cells Congress. Now in its 7th year, the agenda addresses the business and technical challenges and opportunities, and attracts hundreds of senior-level attendees from wireless carriers, OEMs, system integrators, and a host of enterprise end-users from a variety of environments, including universities, sporting stadiums, healthcare, and hospitality.
At no other event will you benefit from the same breadth of networking opportunities, nor experience comparable education on the latest in DAS network design, the best business models at play, and the overall outlook for DAS and small cell solutions.
Whether you are with a wireless carrier striving to improve capacity and offload traffic from the macro network in congested areas, or an IT director of an enterprise/public venue charged with achieving ubiquitous and scalable coverage, or you are with a DAS equipment manufacturer, solution provider or systems integrator – this is your best opportunity to be amongst the industry’s key players and advance your IDAS/ODAS/Small cells project and business goals.
Make your plans to attend today. Register now by calling 888-224-2480 or visit us online.
I look forward to seeing you in Las Vegas in June!
