TIA 2016 Call for Speakers & Product Demonstrations

Call for Speakers open from November 5 - January 31, 2016

Each year, our world becomes increasingly dynamic, mobile, connected and demanding regarding new innovations, technologies, and business paradigms in the telecommunications industry. As participants in this evolving industry, you know what enterprise and consumers are demanding, and you are answering the call for more data, security, speed, throughput - and less costs, network strain, latency, failure to deliver.

This coming year at TIA 2016, the Network of the Future will be focused on 4 themes:

  • The revolution of 5G wireless network
  • Network virtualization
  • Scalability, security and interoperability of the Internet of Things
  • Cybersecurity and network security

We are going to take a deep dive into technology evolution and revolution, infrastructure demands and reorganization, network deployment and structure, and OPEX/CAPEX and business models for every participant in the ecosystem. The high pressure, high speed / constrained resource environment we live in breeds creativity, innovation, and change. We want to capture the pulse of that change and bring it to our audience.
