In addition, specialized “experience centers” will feature the most advanced audio and emerging technologies that enhance mobile devices, as well as customized solutions to enable workers and their mobile devices to stay connected, protected, safe, and productive, regardless of their work environment – in the office, in the vehicle, or in the field.
Behind-the-scenes tours of M&T’s leading-edge wireless DAS network will occur throughout the event.

The Innovation Showcase also features a presentation by John Santo, a retired Department of Homeland Security senior executive. Santo’s session, entitled “Public Safety Broadband: What Will it Mean to You?,” will provide an insider’s view of how the changing needs of frontline government, Public Safety agencies, and private sector providers will shift the paradigm in mission-critical communications. His insight will include perspective on opportunities related to the Middle Class Tax Relief and Job Creation Act of 2012’s proposal for the First Responder Network Authority (FirstNet) – an independent entity within the National Telecommunications & Information Administration authorized to provide emergency responders with the first high-speed, nationwide network dedicated to Public Safety.
