The 2013 Industry Trade Show Season for SOLiD has started with a bang!

We’ve already racked up frequent flier miles in participating at Mobile World Congress (where we launched the GameChanger “Neutral-Host WiFi Offload solution with partner Stoke), the HTNG North American Conference (where hoteliers validated our Next-Generation Passive Optical LAN Fiber-to-the-Room solution as an emerging technology), HIMSS (laissez les bon temps roulez!) and IWCE (where SOLiD president and Safer Buildings Coalition founder Seth Buechley presented on solving the problem of public-safety radio coverage inside buildings and SOLiD-certified partner Tempest Telecom showcased the EXPRESS PS DAS with single system support for 700/800/UHF/VHF public-safety).

And to think it’s only March!

We’ve got a full calendar for the foreseeable future and look forward to seeing you out and about:

NYC In-Building Wireless Conference

SOLiD’s Dennis Rigney presents on the “New York City Subways Case Study: The World’s Largest Subway DAS + WiFi Network” panel.
