Esme Vos, MuniWirelessDespite literally hundreds of successful implementations, the municipal wireless market today is at a critical point in its development. High-profile moves by service providers and several large cities have raised important questions about business models, cost assumptions, technical considerations and ‚Äö?Ñ?¨ in some cases ‚Äö?Ñ?¨ the fundamental efficacy of municipal broadband initiatives. While few doubt the technology’s massive potential for making government operations more efficient and providing affordable, untethered Internet access for residents and local businesses, an important debate is raging about how to turn the promise into a reality for more communities.

That debate will be the focal point of our Silicon Valley conference, with honest, comprehensive discussions about successes and failures, winning strategies and flawed assumptions. Join more than 50 expert speakers from all parts of the market’s ecosystem ‚Äö?Ñ?¨ customers, service providers, integrators and technology providers ‚Äö?Ñ?¨ at our largest conference of the year. Content will include:

  • Service provider executives, explaining business-model realities from their points of view and sharing thoughts about their successful projects
  • A focus on municipal applications that are already providing demonstrable payback for local governments, such as public safety and automated meter reading
  • Understanding the impact of next-generation devices, such as the iPhone, to help improve uptake rates with consumers and businesses
  • Comprehensive discussions on municipalities that have successfully launched municipal broadband networks ‚Äö?Ñ?¨ and their blueprints for success
  • Managing the potentials “gotchas” such as mounting rights and contract negotiations
  • Learning how other municipalities have integrated their wireless networks with fiber infrastructure
  • Getting the real lowdown on advancements in WiMAX, mesh, fiber and all of the technologies shaping the present and future of municipal broadband strategies
  • A no-holds-barred discussion with CIOs from five of the market’s highest-profile communities ‚Äö?Ñ?¨ San Francisco, Philadelphia, Chicago, Los Angeles and Boston ‚Äö?Ñ?¨ who will detail their strategies for unleashing municipal wireless’ true potential for governments and their entire communities

This conference will feature a wide range of experts and pioneers who have actually implemented municipal broadband, and have the battle scars to prove it. It will also make sure to look ahead and provide the clear vision of what can ‚Äö?Ñ?¨ and should ‚Äö?Ñ?¨ be achieved through the hope and dream of mobile, ubiquitous broadband. This is the event to attend if you believe in the dream and must deal with the reality.
