This series of sessions is designed for organization leaders and strategy officers in wireless infrastructure. Tower owners, public and private, navigating the transformation in the mobile industry are presented with new opportunities and challenges, from is essentially the Tower Business track; not the nuts and bolts of building or operating towers, including managing assets better; investing in horizontal infrastructure; distributed energy, shared network services and more.

The operational challenges in deploying hundreds of thousands of small cells, on private as well as public property, is immense. This series of sessions is designed for the operational managers in the field tasked with managing and optimizing all types of sites, macro, micro and backhaul. Asset owners can benefit from these sessions, but more so will site development/site services and the professional services organizations required to prosper in a new era of smaller, cheaper and more dense network deployments.
Commercial property owners and landlords: this track is designed for your innovation teams, CTOs and integrators. Sessions are focused on the technology (DAS versus WiFi versus CBRS) as well as the changing business models for property owners. What was once a DAS business is evolving quickly to include CBRS, Edge computing, fiber – and the transformational business decisions required to monetize the next generation of digital infrastructure.

With PAL (Priority Access License) auctions scheduled for June, interest in CBRS and the 3.5GHz spectrum is high among mobile carriers, fixed wireless carriers and new entrants – including MSOs, utilities, neutral hosts and enterprises. This series of sessions is designed to support all business models, infrastructure partners and the services firms that are foundational to a robust private LTE network marketplace.

The edge of the network is where the wireless industry and the datacenter industry converge. Edge services are an engine of growth for the infrastructure owners and provide a catalyst for the web scale providers, cloud services companies and traditional datacenter companies to find partnerships, alliances and new opportunities with tower owners and aggrators.
2020 may usher in changes in policy and direction in Congressional committee positions that oversee telecommunications and technology issues. This series of sessions focuses on the significant issues at work in the mobile and wireless infrastructure sectors in 2020 and beyond. Included are updates on FCC and State regulation of mid-band spectrum; speeding up review of small cells; upcoming spectrum auctions, and more. Panelists will offer insight into how FCC policy is changing and what the implications are to infrastructure owners, carriers and new entrants alike.
Cloud gaming is nearly positioned to achieve its true potential, and the gaming industry is booming, but it remains hindered by its dependence on reliable, fast mobile connectivity. With 5G, game service providers have the potential to generate an important new revenue service and capitalize on the demand for streaming services.
High latency, low-bandwidth and other limitations already make playing a game on a local device challenging and sometimes glitchy. 5G can deliver the low latency and high-speed connectivity required for cloud gaming, and also meet data demands from gaming platform subscribers.
Municipalities of all sizes are fielding more and more requests to locate fiber, small cells and a denser array of wireless antennas in their jurisdictions. As mobile operators, their infrastructure partners and other new entrants move to “densify” communications networks in urban and suburban environments, municipal agencies are fielding more applications and utilizing more resources to keep up with the demand.
This new wave of technology spending and deployment forces both sectors — private and public – to examine their approach to this digitization of civic infrastructure. What is required is a new dialogue – one that includes addressing new methodologies, new partnerships and new strategies to help manage what could be a 10x increase in communications projects.
This workshop is designed to help advance this new dialogue. The agenda includes a cross section of public sector voices and private sector thought leaders who will offer new insight and solutions to effectively manage a new era in digital complexity and build the smarter city from the internet up.
This business technology conference is unique. While there exist multiple conferences to discuss the asset value, investment ROI and other factors with regard to traditional infrastructure – bridges, roads, waste water plants and more, there are few North American conferences that provide all stakeholders in the technology investment community with a focus on the digital infrastructure and investment profile of assets required support a 21st century information economy.
In addition, while investment firms hold annual conferences to hear presentations from CEOs and CFOs from leading public companies, there are few events for all stakeholders in the investment community to gain from a holistic and systematic perspective of digital infrastructure, let alone a vision for the capital required to sustain an always on; everything connected; cloud-based economy.
Enterprise LTE Networks made possible by OnGo will free enterprise IT teams from the restrictions of conventional connectivity technologies such as Ethernet, which is secure and reliable but costly and inflexible; and Wi-Fi, which is low cost but also delivers lower reliability. This half-day workshop is designed to educate Enterprise IT teams and CTOs, along with the integrators, infrastructure partners and professional services firms – to facilitate the launch of thousands of enterprise LTE networks, mobilizing enterprise IT while enabling innovation, new services and more.
