Fiber: the Light at the End of the Wireless Cable
Mobile network operators like Verizon and AT&T have spent money like crazy on fiber-optic systems to underpin broadband wireless services. They know fiber holds the key to deploying next-generation consumer wireless and enterprise communications. Tower companies know it, too, which has led some of them to diversify into fiber deployment. Some companies that own miles of fiber routes have become small cell providers. Where does this leave you? Come to this session to learn where fiber will lead to next. Find out how fiber affects your company today and the opportunities it will give you tomorrow.

Wireless Infrastructure Gets SaaS-y with the Carriers
If your company could perform work faster without losing track of details, it would make you more money, right? Efficiency leads to profit. When you perform work for wireless carriers, you face tight deadlines and even tighter budgets. Software as a service (SaaS) has an answer for you. It can help you automate, replicate and manage build-outs for small cells, macro towers and rooftop sites. SaaS hasn’t become a $181 billion industry for doing nothing. It became a giant industry by helping folks like you. Let this session untangle the mystery for you.

Towers on the Cutting Edge of Computing
What difference does it make to have an edge-computing micro-datacenter at your antenna site? It ties your antenna sites into the radical vision needed for 5G to achieve fundamental changes for wireless communications. Above all, it makes your antenna sites attractive to wireless carriers. Possibly the most tantalizing vision reveals the use of macrotowers as locations for edge-computing datacenters for crucial reductions in network latency. Learn about the opportunity of hosting a mini-datacenter next to your tower, where your tenants may expand beyond the wireless carriers to include the FANGs (Facebook, Amazon, Netflix and Google) and who knows who else? This session will help you take part in this new frontier.
