As the Internet of Things (IoT) continues to grow, more and more 5G applications and networks come online, and wireless and wireline technologies converge, it can be challenging for busy telecommunications professionals, service providers and enterprise end-users to stay abreast of every emerging trend and disruptive innovation that impacts their businesses.
Since 2010, the Northeast DAS & Small Cell Association (NEDAS) has provided an essential resource to help telecom professionals stay informed of this rapidly evolving industry through thought-provoking events and conferences, lively networking receptions, informative webinars, and timely news updates. Just recently, NEDAS announced its annual sponsor list for 2018, which includes leading fiber, wireline and wireless service operators and providers, as well as network construction companies, DAS and small cell solutions providers and wireless equipment and infrastructure providers.
NEDAS is welcoming back seven returning sponsors. Returning Gold sponsors include RF Industries, ADRF and Corning, while returning Platinum sponsors include SOLiD, Anritsu, Westell and ZenFi. New sponsors for 2018 are Gold Sponsor ExteNet, Silver Sponsor Gabe’s Wireless Solutions, and Platinum Sponsor Intelibs.
“We are excited about the support NEDAS is receiving from providers and organizations that are focused on collaborating to provide communications everywhere,” stated Ilissa Miller, President of NEDAS and CEO of iMiller Public Relations. “2018 is on track to be one of the most successful years to date for the NEDAS community as we bring together all of the key players to explore the impact of IoT and the convergence of wireless and wireline solutions.”
Last year, more than 700 participants attended NEDAS events, further solidifying NEDAS as one of the largest organizations to host HetNet professionals, in-building wireless specialists and enterprise end-users.
Here are some upcoming NEDAS events scheduled for 2018:
- Chicago NEDAS Social (May 9);
- Boston NEDAS Symposium (July 18); and
- New York City NEDAS Summit (September 6).
This year, NEDAS will be supported by several media, standards, industry research and open source organizations. Initial participating partners for NEDAS include Light Reading, IWCE, Inside Towers and 5th Gen Media – Connect Real Estate Magazine. NEDAS events are produced by iMiller Public Relations in association with TelecomNewsroom.
