LTE NA Who you will meet

1to1-meetings-680x100

1,000 people are attending and the reason they’re here is because they’re the ones who are involved in what’s happening worldwide and so it’s a very focused event

Tom Carter, VP Worldwide Sales, Service Providers, F5 Networks

There is a lot of change occurring and you need to be up on it- get in here and talk with various vendors and other attendees and share ideas and thoughts

Brian Modoff, Senior Comms Tech Analyst, Deutsche Bank Securities

We managed to schedule some high quality meetings and I think we will extract a lot of value from the level of meetings and the good attendance

Eran Eshed, Co-founder, VP Marketing, Altair Semiconductor

It’s been a tremendous experience being able to open up a lot of doors. Previously we weren’t able to get access to companies, or didn’t have the right contacts- this has provided that opportunity

Emil Olbrich, Lead Engineer, Public Saftey Network Project, NIST

It’s been a great show, it’s been informative and really good educational tracks

Wes Kelley, President & CEO, C&W Enterprises

I think all the biggest LTE fans are here. It’s a great place to meet up with my peers and our vendors and suppliers

John Saw, CTO, Clearwire

We see people from everywhere in the industry, the way it is organised and the way it is structured it gave me a chance to meet them all

Bernard St-Laurent, Public Safety, Canada

I see the show is growing and every year it gets better and better

Douglas Tait, Director, Telecoms Global Markets, Oracle

We managed to schedule some high quality meetings and I think we will extract a lot of value from the level of meetings and the good attendance
