For the last several years, the telecommunications industry has been eagerly anticipating the arrival of 5G connectivity. It’s always been a matter of when, as opposed to if the technology would become widely adopted.

Now it appears that the wait is over, as some experts, including Colby Synesael, Managing Director and Senior Research Analyst at Cowen Group, Inc., are predicting that 5G  will have a significant impact on the market this year.

The Northeast DAS and Small Cell Association (NEDAS) and iMiller Public Relations (iMPR) recently announced that Mr. Synesael will be the keynote speaker at NEDAS’ fifth annual New York City Summit, taking place April 20, 2017 at the New York Academy of Medicine in Manhattan.

This theme of the NEDAS NYC Summit is “2017: The Year IoT Demands Infrastructure to be Reshaped Above and Below the Ground.” Mr. Synesael, who specializes in the communications infrastructure and telecom services industries, is uniquely positioned to talk about how 5G will shape the industry this year and into the future.

For instance, in a recent publication titled “Surveying the 5G Landscape: A Sector View of What’s to Come,” Mr. Synesael claimed that the best way to play 5G is to invest in companies that will help facilitate the network buildouts.

“We are very excited to have Colby speak at our New York City summit,” stated Ilissa Miller, president of NEDAS and founder and CEO of iMiller Public Relations. “He has extensive experience and a profound understanding of the wireline and wireless infrastructure needs of the global telecom landscape. The wealth of information Colby can offer to our attendees is expected to be well received by the NEDAS community.”

Mr. Synesael also commented on his upcoming keynote at the NEDAS New York City Summit.

“I’m quite pleased that NEDAS approached me to participate in its event,” shared Mr. Synesael.  “5G mobile networks will significantly affect both the wireless and wireline sectors of the global network infrastructure, and the opportunities and challenges this presents to the marketplace as surveyed in my recent report will be of great interest to NEDAS attendees.”
