Disruption at the Network Edge

Steve Papa, Co-Founder, Chairman & CEO

March 1, 2017 @ 2:15pm – 3:40pm  – Fira Gran Via, Barcelona, Spain

The growth in network traffic to be managed in the coming years is staggering, no matter whose projections you use. It will demand massive boosts in RAN, backhaul and fronthaul resources. At a time when many operators’ revenues are stable or declining, how can these demands be met without proving ruinously expensive? Only through radical reinvention of the technology and business models being used. Happily, such reinvention is taking place and is producing exciting results. In this session we share some of the most striking from around the world.

Band 14 Case Studies: Super Bowl, Republican National Convention, and CAUSE

Steve Kropper, VP of Business Development, US Public Safety

Monday, March 27 – Las Vegas Convention Center, Las Vegas, NV

Get an update on several case studies on early builder LTE deployments and trials, from cities, counties and states, for general interoperable communications to specific events and incidents. Examine how various partners work together for both fixed and deployable networks, device management such as ruggedized handsets which allow for integrated push-to-talk, application management and situational awareness. Network testing and end user feedback will be shared along with lessons learned.

Enabling LMR to LTE Interoperability for Public Safety

Rajesh Mishra, Co-Founder, President & CTO

Tuesday, March 28 @ 8:30am – 11:30am – Las Vegas Convention Center, Las Vegas, NV

Examine the interoperability of voice networks as organizations consider their options and needs as they migrate from LMR to LTE or MCPTT over cellular. Discuss how IP has revolutionized traditional voice communications. Compare the benefits and limitations of a private narrowband network to broadband, including speed, volume and cybersecurity. Explore how to enhance the benefits of LMR to LTE interoperability by using digital interfaces such as ISSI for P25 and AIS for DMR, and hear real examples of how they are being used in the field.

Network Jamming Detection: The Dangerous Consequences for GPS, Autonomous Vehicles and IoT

Rajesh Mishra, Co-Founder, President & CTO

Wednesday, March 29 @ 4:15pm – 5:30pm – Las Vegas Convention Center, Las Vegas, NV

The new market for IoT devices can be exciting and promising, but also a bit scary. There could be disastrous consequences if, for example, the network operating an autonomous bus fleet gets jammed or hacked. Explore how to detect the jamming, and more importantly, how to keep it from happening in the first place. Examine options for GPS, autonomous vehicles and other machine-to-machine communications.

Providing Coverage in Rural America

Kevin Kleinsmith, Solutions Architect

Thursday, March 30 @ 10:00am – 11:15am – Las Vegas Convention Center, Las Vegas, NV

Unlike carriers, FirstNet is legally bound to cover every square inch of the US, including the vast undeveloped areas in rural America, and even in the national parks. Examine the challenges and opportunities for expanding the rural coverage.

Deployable Networks: Bring Your Own Coverage (BYOC) Solution for Instant Coverage

Steve Kropper, VP of Business Development, US Public Safety

Thursday, March 30 @ 2:00pm – 3:15pm – Las Vegas Convention Center, Las Vegas, NV

Whether it’s on the ground in a vehicle or backpack, in the air or placed on a building, bringing your coverage with you is now a reality.  Remote locations and densely populated events all can benefit from a reliable, deployable alternative communications system.  Examine low-power, small size, portable, quick to install, easy to operate and highly resilient options that bring the coverage to where it’s needed most.  How will these systems be used in support of search and rescue, narcotics and border protection?  What services are available over these deployable networks?  Will they change the way first responders approach their mission?
