Executive Vice President of Wireless Doug Wiest to Explore the Complexities of In-Building Wireless June 9 in Chicago

EdgeLogoHerndon, VA – May 20, 2015EdgeConneX®, specializing in hosting solutions at the edge of the network, announces today that its Executive Vice President of Wireless, Doug Wiest, will speak at the Northeast DAS & Small Cell Association (NEDAS) In-Building Solutions Workshop at Light Reading’s Big Telecom Event (BTE).  BTE takes place June 9-10, 2015 at McCormick Place in Chicago, Illinois.

On Tuesday, June 9, Mr. Wiest will join executives from SOLiD, ADRF, Mobilitie and ZenFi Networks on the panel In-Building Wireless – It’s Not Just Wi-Fi and More Important than You Think…Here’s Why!, taking place from 4:00 – 5:00 PM.  The session will explore the opportunities and complexities associated with in-building wireless, including addressing the issues of cost as well as competing Wi-Fi, Distributed Antenna System (DAS) and Small Cell architectures.

“In today’s fast-paced world, people expect comprehensive wireless and cellular coverage everywhere they go – from corporate office buildings, to campuses, hospitals, and sports arenas,” states Mr. Wiest.  “This poses a challenge for providers, companies and building owners, who are now tasked with providing better signal coverage or enabling sufficient capacity for today’s explosive data-centric and bandwidth-consuming services in order to remain competitive.”

“In view of the current, critical state of affairs, the NEDAS Workshop at BTE will provide an excellent forum at which leaders in the industry will explore in-building solutions so that providers, enterprises and building owners can ensure always-on access to advanced applications and services, delivered across any device, and in any indoor environment,” Wiest adds.

NEDAS is a grassroots wireless telecom association whose mission is to create a positive, nonpartisan and invigorating environment in which local industry professionals can learn, discuss, debate, socialize, collaborate with their peers, and encourage networking, public outreach and education about the DAS and Small Cell industries.  The NEDAS In-Building Solutions Workshop at BTE will converge industry thought-leaders for an informative and practical discussion to share industry insights and opportunities with new targets.
