CTC Principal Engineer Shawn Thompson will address the IWCE Expo on March 24, 2014 on how local government is uniquely able to help public safety and improve in-building wireless by coordinating a unified DAS strategy and using government-owned assets such as government-owned fiber. Shawn will discuss steps taken by Washington, DC and other cities.
Comprehensive in-building wireless is critical for the public to reach 9-1-1 and is a key element of making FirstNet work in urban areas. Local government actions can reduce the cost and improve the speed and effectiveness of FirstNet and commercial wireless deployment. Shawn is on the In-Building Wireless and DAS Fundamentals panel at 1pm PT.
