Boingo Execs Discuss Emerging Wireless Trends at PCIA’s Wireless Infrastructure Show


PCIA’s Wireless Infrastructure Show is one of the wireless industry’s premier forums for sharing insights and the latest innovations in next generation wireless technology.

A carrier member of PCIA, the Boingo team is honored to once again be a featured participant in PCIA’s educational sessions. Boingo vice presidents Zack Sterngold and Doug Lodder will be providing their unique perspectives on two of the hottest areas in wireless deployment today.


If you’ll be at PCIA this week, be sure to mark your calendars for these sessions:

Viva Brasil! Preparing for the World’s Biggest Sports Events

Tuesday, May 20 – 1:30 p.m. ET

Brazil is an increasingly popular tourist destination, and in the next two years will host two of the world’s biggest sporting events: the World Cup in summer 2014, and the Rio 2016 Summer Olympics.

These events will bring massive crowds to Brazil’s airports, stadiums and public spaces, with the vast majority toting a wireless device to capture their experiences and share them with friends. To ensure that the country’s wireless infrastructure can handle the huge influx of traffic, the Brazilian government is turning to companies like Boingo, Cisco and others to rapidly upgrade systems to ensure a world-class wireless experience.

Boingo’s vice president of Latin America, Zack Sterngold, will be a leading participant in the panel, which will explore the following:

  • The unique Brazilian wireless infrastructure and industry
  • Rapid upgrade planning, and anticipating wireless needs 24 months into the future
  • Monetizing small cells in high-density, low-use facilities
  • Navigating international wireless and governmental standards
  • The role of Wi-Fi in capacity management

Wireless Trends Driving Demand for Distributed Antenna Systems 

Tuesday, May 20 – 1:30 p.m. ET

In an industry with no shortage of acronyms, “DAS,” or Distributed Antenna Systems, is one of the buzziest. And with good reason – in the last few years, DAS has become a go-to technology to improve coverage and capacity in large-scale venues serving big audiences. Major carriers are investing heavily in DAS systems, including AT&T with their Project VIP.

What trends are driving these billion dollar DAS investments? What is DAS’s role in the HetNet? And how can DAS most effectively be deployed for venues, consumers and carriers?

Boingo’s Doug Lodder, vice president of DAS and Wi-Fi business development, will lead the panel in a discussion of the latest DAS deployments, neutral host DAS business models, the latest approaches to iDAS and oDAS, and the next DAS “land grab” locations.





If you can’t make it to these engaging educational sessions, be sure to check back at The Hotspot, or on Boingo’s Facebook and Twitter for updates on these panels, and on Boingo’s DAS and Brazil-based deployments.
