TAG Infrastructure Society Expert Panel Explores the Evolution and Future of Small Cell, DAS and Macro Cell Technology

Atlanta, GA – February 3, 2016 – Growing penetration of smartphones, connected devices and an estimated 10 GB of data consumption per month by U.S. consumers has placed heavy demands on today’s wireless industry. To boost coverage and reception service providers are deploying wireless antennas on cellular towers, multi-story buildings and water towers – thereby reducing dropped calls and data loss in high-traffic areas.

These large “macro” cell sites, small cell technologies and Distributed Antenna System (DAS) technologies form the core of today’s cellular network, enabling wireless service providers to deliver voice, text and other broadband communications to 389 million U.S. wireless subscribers.

Join TAG Infrastructure on Wednesday, February 17 in Sandy Springs, as Joshua Broder, CEO of Tilson Technology Management, moderates an expert panel from Crown Castle, AT&T, Tower Cloud and Connectivity Wireless who will explore industry changes and discuss the future of this quickly evolving industry.
Panelist Sean Ramjas, Director, RF Engineering at Crown Castle, offers an industry perspective gained from 20 years of management positions at AT&T, Verizon Wireless, Sprint Nextel and NextG/Crown Castle. Sean will be joined on the panel by Carl Dubuque, Manager/Sales Engineering at Tower Cloud. As head of sales engineering, Carl is responsible for the design and development of ODAS and small cell technologies as well as fiber-based Ethernet and dark fiber solutions. Sonny Pieper, Area Manager, National Small Cell Business Development for the AT&T Antenna Solutions group, has served in multiple construction and engineering roles in both the wireline and wireless arenas for AT&T. He will be joined by Bryce Bregen, Senior VP of Connectivity Wireless. Bryce has overseen 2,100 distributed antenna system installations across vertical markets and uses his industry knowledge to educate audiences on next-generation in-building wireless trends.

The event, scheduled February 17 from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m., is open to the public. For more information and to register, please visit: https://s08.123signup.com/servlet/SignUpMember?PG=1521974182300&P=15219741911429009800&Info
