SOLiD to Sponsor ACI’s 5th Annual DAS Congress
Exhibiting DAS and Backhaul Solution Portfolio in SOLiD Learning Center; Presenting on DAS Trends and a Framework to Ensure Public Safety Radio Coverage Inside Buildings
May 14, 2012 Roseburg, OR — SOLiD is sponsoring ACI’s 5th Annual DAS Congress at Caesar’s Palace May 21 – 23. The Company returns to DAS Congress with the SOLiD Learning Center which provides attendees with live, hands-on demonstrations of SOLiD’s expanded portfolio of innovative Distributed Antenna System (DAS) solutions. SOLiD opens the conference by presenting DAS Trends – What’s Hot & What’s Next? with industry analyst Iain Gillot of iGR Research. Plus, SOLiD’s president, Seth Buechley, leads a discussion on making buildings safer in the session, Establishing Universal Indoor Public Safety Radio Coverage. Lastly, SOLiD is once again sponsoring DAS Congress Networking Reception on Tuesday evening.
- The SOLiD Learning Center – Located in the Salerno Room across from the DAS Congress exhibit area, the SOLiD Learning Center enables attendees to explore SOLiD solutions with SOLiD’s product managers. This year, the Learning Center includes the ALLIANCE™ best-in-class multi-service platform; the MIMO-ready, operator-specific EXPRESS™ with EasySET™ - the industry’s fastest and easiest commissioning software; the new TITAN™ 20W Remote for high-traffic indoor or outdoor applications and; the ACCESS™ multiplexor which significantly lowers Small Cell Backhaul and WiFi Offload costs.
- DAS Trends Presentation – Iain Gillot, a leading industry analyst and president of iGR, joins SOLiD to examine the most critical trends in DAS including small cell deployments and, more importantly, backhauling traffic to and from the small cell. The panel will also explore how DAS will evolve to deliver a single active infrastructure in the ceiling capable of supporting (and adding) applications and systems.
- Universal Indoor Public Safety Radio Coverage Presentation – SOLiD’s president, Seth Buechley, leads industry experts in a discussion to fix Public Safety radio coverage where it is most needed: inside of buildings. The panel will explore why this problem exists and will propose a plan for addressing it through industry awareness, a national framework of building codes and a certification program for technicians who install and manage networks that support Public Safety.“With our mission to lead the markets we serve with best-in-class products and services, SOLiD is privileged to once again sponsor DAS Congress and help solve the difficult issues in the wireless industry,” said Seth Buechley, president of SOLiD.
“Last year, we suggested a new model for addressing the economic challenge of DAS ownership through a ‘Shared DAS’ model whereby the Building Owner owns the network, the Operators pay their share and the Integrator installs and manages the system. This year, we’re tackling the greatest impediment to the deployment of small cells – backhaul. And, through our Safer Buildings Coalition, we’re going to help first responders to do what they do best by empowering them to be able to communicate effectively inside the building.”
