Connectivity Expo

Where Infrastructure Meets Everything



Opportunities at the Edge: Co-locating virtualized servers with radio equipment creates new business opportunities for tower owners and operators, allowing novel partnerships with hyper-scale cloud providers and Internet services vendors.


Critical for dense urban connectivity, small cells and millimeter wave backhaul, rooftops are a key component of a 5G environment with increasing traffic from video, cloud-services and edge computing.

Stadiums/Public Venues

More than planning for capacity, high-traffic public venues require dense networks, gigabit backhaul and multi-operator connectivity – a perfect wave in neutral host networks supported with gigabit fiber, private LTE and and WiFi.

Small cells and IoT

Densification is more than small cells or DAS or Wi-Fi. The demand to carry more traffic, to more device types, with more reliability and lower latency creates the need for networks with higher density of RAN access points. Who is impacted? Site owners, municipal leaders, public safety agencies, mobile carriers and new entrants.

Connected Vehicles

Autonomous Vehicles and Vehicle-to-Everything connectivity is changing the nature of transportation. Connected Vehicle technologies requires updated network infrastructure and improved network connectivity. What does that mean for cities? For network operators? For infrastructure owners and partners?


80% of traffic comes from devices located indoors. Gigabit connectivity to the building and in-building is a must for commercial property owners. Are commercial buildings the next wave in neutral host networks and Private LTE networks?

What is Connect (X)?

A ground-breaking event that convenes the buyers and sellers of connectivity solutions, and showcases the innovative technology, underlying infrastructure, and partner ecosystem driving the future of communications.
