4G Americas to Address Critical Topics at Mobility Tech Conference & Expo and M2M Evolution in Austin, Texas, October 3-5, 2012
BELLEVUE, Wash. – June 08 2012
Will bring their expertise in spectrum allocation, NG 9-1-1, LTE and Voice over HSPA
“Network capacity constraints for mobile service providers throughout the Americas, and particularly in the U.S., will soon affect their ability to offer more advanced services unless governments make more spectrum available,” said Chris Pearson, President of 4G Americas. “Additionally, smartphone and tablet sales are exploding and mobile data usage rates are skyrocketing – fueling the absolute need for more spectrum.”
To strengthen this message and address other key issues and opportunities for mobile broadband, 4G Americas, a wireless industry trade association representing the 3GPP family of technologies, is endorsing the Mobility Tech Conference and Expo and M2M Evolution Conference, events jointly produced by Technology Marketing Corp. (TMC) and Crossfire Media. Both events areslated to take place October 3-5, 2012, in Austin, Texas.
4G Americas will bring their expertise in the areas of spectrum allocation, next-generation (NG) 9-1-1, LTE and LTE-Advanced technology and Voice over HSPA to the Mobility Tech Conference and Expo agenda. As an association sponsor, 4G Americas will develop four sessions covering these topics at the Mobility Tech Conference and Expo and will moderate a session at M2M Evolution.
4G Americas has long been an advocate of underscoring the importance of the allocation of additional and internationally harmonized spectrum in order for the U.S. to continue to be a leader in the mobile broadband world. Pearson will participate in the first session at the Mobility Tech Conference and Expo, titled, “Making the Most with Spectrum at our Hands” that will examine the key issues surrounding the spectrum crisis and the options for its management. Rick Whitt, Director and Managing Counsel at Google and Hank Hultquist, Vice President, Federal Regulatory at AT&T, will join Pearson.
“There are several critical topics for the wireless industry to address in the near future, and our association’s objective is to select key industry conferences at which to address these concerns. For this reason we are pleased to endorse and participate at Mobility Tech and M2M Evolution,” commented Vicki Livingston, Head of Communications and Analyst Relations at 4G Americas.
“4G Americas has been an active voice in the advancement of the mobile broadband ecosystem,” said Carl Ford, Co-Founder of Crossfire Media. “Mobility Tech Conference attendees will benefit from their deep understanding of mobility topics, including critical spectrum issues, LTE and other 3GPP technologies and we are thrilled to have them participate in our program.”
