The Educational Summit Takes Place October 2, 2013 in Washington, D.C.

Herndon, VA – September 26, 2013EdgeConneX, a leading provider of Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) solutions, today announces its participation at The Northeast DAS and Small Cell Association’s Educational Summit, ‘The Era of Convergence’, taking place October 2, 2013 at the Kellogg Conference Hotel in Washington, D.C.

The Northeast DAS & Small Cell Association (NEDAS) is a leading caucus of Northeast DAS and small cell professionals and end-users. The association’s educational conference brings together industry thought-leaders to discuss the deployment, operational challenges and ROI effectiveness of DAS and small cell network solutions.  EdgeConneX’s Doug Wiest will participate on the panel, “Putting the Converged Network Together”.

EdgeConneX delivers edge-of-network solutions such as Meet You Points™ for Cell Backhaul, Edge PoPs™ and Small Cell-as-a-Service. As the leading provider in the small cell market, EdgeConneX has led several prominent small cellular (‘small cell’) network deployments, including the construction of a small cell network for a high-profile, ‘urban’ Northern Virginia mixed-use, class ‘A’ residential and retail property development as well as the deployment of a ‘rural’ small cell network for CoverageCo throughout the state of Vermont.

“The converged network is a diverse topic that can encompass a wide variety of solutions,” comments Doug Wiest, EVP of Wireless at EdgeConneX.  “Along with fellow panelists from Tilson, Corning and CCI Systems, the focus of our conversation will be on the integration of small cell network solutions into a broader communications infrastructure. This technology, while challenging to deploy, is changing the way people access mobile networks from nearly anywhere.”

In addition to participating on a panel at the conference, EdgeConneX is the sponsor of the event’s luncheon, a catered affair for nearly 200 registered attendees.  For information about the NEDAS Educational Summit and to register for the event, visit www.nedas.com.
